Capella University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (263)
I completed two degree programs with Capella University. The school was founded with the promise to promote and aid students to excel in their programs. ( Personal opinion) This is an organization that aids the adult learner to research and study to prove competency. Many students are not good with time management/ or being accountable due to procrastination. The programs will help you to succeed in the corporate world. There are two processes to observe. First: the theory aspect. Second: the application process. Capella instructors push the aspect of critical thinking, development of thinking, and utilization of present theories. (Supported by articles written by industry leaders with published work.)These methodologies allow the student to visualize the concepts and place the ideas into their environment. I would recommend the school.
I am in my 2nd class and already see that there are people in my class that shouldn't be. Their writing is so atrocious, that I can barely get through their posts so that I can reply to further the discussion. These students are supposed to be my peers, and they can barely write, which waters down, way down, my degree. I am very disappointed.
I have completed only 2 classes with this school. So far my admission, financial aid, snd response time to emails or phone messages has been top notch. I have received amazing support and speedy service. I will continue to review as i continue with my journey. Thus far, I highly recommend this school for nursing programs.
I have been a graduate student at Capella since September 2015, and I have had the most amazing experience, from excellent courses, to great instructors to interacting with insightful, enthusiastic and highly professional educators. I am learning, growing, and implementing all of the invaluable information and I am looking forward to continue growing as a student, professional and lifelong learner.
Being part of Capella University has challenged me to think outside the box, to be practical, and most important, finish the journey. Certain obstacles have temporarily impeded that process, but im still progressing and pushing for that towards the ultimate goal.
Capella University offered me individualized service and support that I have not received at another college. I attended 2 community colleges prior to enrolling and I felt more involved with the online experience than on campus! Now I am in the graduate program and plan to complete my doctorate as well. My education at Capella has opened doors that would not have been there otherwise,
I started at Capella in July of 2011, transferred from Devry - BEST decision I made during my college career. Mid-January of 2016 I started in the FlexPath Program - OUTSTANDING!! I finished 6 courses in 10 months!! FlexPath is the perfect way to get your degree if you have a busy personal and work schedule. I was able to move my assessment dates up or back depending on what was happening in my life. It really fit MY schedule. No discussions, no deadlines. I worked at my own pace and loved it!! The tutors and professors were GREAT at answering questions and my adviser was amazing! She knew exactly what I needed to get the most out of my education dollars. I also have huge respect for the financial team at Capella - during my years with Capella, when finances were tough for me, they were understanding and flexible. THANK YOU!! I am #CapellaProud.
I have seen many reviews written against Capella, however, in my own personal opinion, Capella is a good school. My second year of classes begin in October 2016 and my first year was awesome. There were many adjustments that I had to make to make my first year work for me and I did quite well. The program is not a cake walk and it should not be. The professors have been very knowledgeable and helpful towards helping me to reach my goal of obtaining my doctorate in social work. I am glad that I chose Capella because with Capella, I am able to work and also be a student. I look forward to realizing more of my educational potential with Capella!
Similar to other reviews, I cannot understand why some reviewers have given Capella bad - and some terrible - reviews. I've been with Capella University for a few years, and the only issue I can honestly say I have is with the changes made in how we obtain our text books... That's it. Otherwise, each and every one of my instructors have been phenomenal - granted, some more than others - but all were wonderful in their own right and each had their strengths. But, they all had a great deal of experience, were knowledgeable, and eager to share and support learners in succeeding. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Advising Staff if I tried. My advisor(s) are extremely helpful, go above and beyond, and on the rare occasion I don't hear back from them - it is only due to a time off situation, such as vacation, sick, etc. My advisor gets back to me as soon as she possibly can - and it never takes a long time; and always able to resolve my issue or help me out. I don't know how the instructors are in other programs - just in graduate nursing. Therefore, I cannot say 'every' Capella instructor is fabulous - but I can say that the MSN nursing instructors are - for sure.
I've chosen to attend Capella University because the admissions process was a lot easier to pass; though I prefer a more brick-and-mortar college. Capella is a nice university of itself. However, my program in health care informatics do not live up to the expectations that I had. The courses taken are fluff. I wish the program was more tailored on informatics itself without all of the irrelevant extras. But looks like I'm enrolled in the program for now. This is the only downfall that I have about Capella. Though it does boast on being a good quality online university.
