Capella University Reviews - Bachelor's in Business Administration
Outstanding experience! I completed the flex path program at Capella achieving a bachelors in business administration. If you are accountable and motivated to further advance your academic studies this is the right choice for you. There is no hand holding - you are responsible for completing the coursework and following the academic policies. However, if you do find yourself in need of advice my "coach" aka adviser was more than helpful with any issue. With my degree in hand, many doors have been opened that weren't open before and I am making $15k more annually.
Excellent school. Excellent! FlexPath is the bomb way to get your degree and still manage life!!! The flexibility that it gives makes getting your degree more manageable. I would recommend this school to my family and friends! Capella University is all right with me!
If you are smart and determined ignore these crazy reviewers. I am in the flexpath program and am leaving a review because it seems most of the reviewers here either were pathetic in there attempts at higher education or simply lying. My fafsa pays for 2/3 of the cost. I started last February with less than 20 credits and will be done by this summer with 160 credits. Flexpath allows you to take 2 courses at a time although I'm usually only in one. I use the second slot as an option from time to time. I have had zero trouble with anyone within the advising community. If you feel like you will need a tutor than don't pick this school because it is the one area that they are legitimately terrible. I am in numerous facebook communities that all testify to how much the appreciate the school, minus the tutors. I will have spent less than 10k in the end and already have job opportunities that will make up the difference in no time. Of course you will be frustrated but treat your education like its a 9-5 and this university can take you from 28 year old with no skills to your entry into a career field in less than 2 years.. I just wanted to say that because I appreciate what the school has done for my life.
Capella University is simply amazing! When I first began this journey in January 2017 I had no idea what I would experience. Being in a professional senior level management job means I have a lot of pressure during my daily activities and I had no idea how I would balance my family, career and college all while my wife was completing a doctorate. Yet, with the great addition of the Sophia courses I was able to get in and jump right into the degree program. Once I had completed just about all of the Sophia courses I could, I began to inquire about FlexPath. FlexPath is really incredible! Paying just one fee for a 12 week cycle and being able to complete as many classes as I could in that time really helped me get to the finish line much quicker than I ever imagined. Every night when my family went to bed I went into the basement and would work until I could not stay up any longer and just cranked out the papers. This was a daunting task but I finished in literally no time at all! The instructors were quick to grade the papers and very often with just one attempt I would exceed the expectations and would be ready to move on to the next assessment. The navigation of courses was so easy as the plan would show me the upcoming classes and would allow me to make changes as needed. I don't know why anyone would go anywhere else for college!! Capella University is simply the all around best experience from all the supportive staff to the flexibility and ease of navigation this school has it all. I really cannot wait to begin my MBA program through Capella in less that a month!
Capella University Guided path was just what I needed. I was 45 years of age when I decided to go back and get a degree and with a busy full time job and full time parenting, I was a little worried on how I could get a degree during everything else. The school advisors walked me through the first year of how to set up courses and determined what was best for me to teach me how to plan out my future success. It was a huge help. With Capella's writing assessments, it meant I didn't have to sit and cram for an exam, so it speak, or memorize unnecessary works. I simply had to take what I have learned and write a specific topic to complete a course. Oh! and the courses are designed with the adult learner in mind. Everything about this school has led to my success, not just as a student, but in my career.
In the summer and fall quarter of 2014 i went to capella and taken a couple of course a passed them with A's and B's, after that quarter had ended i had to leave due to family emergency which was something serious, ok i comes back november 21, 2017, which i supposed to started november 7, 2018, but call my academic advisor a week before that start date and explained the reason i can't start on that date and it will be better for me to start on the next date available she said that it will be fine and wont go against me because i made them aware a week before time so i start a couple weeks later that month with no problems financial aid coming in with no problems or anything. ok in march i decided that the degree i was taking up at the time wasn't for me and had a lot of changes where you need to go maybe 4 more years in school so i changed over to another that i was interested, but my advisor told me that i had to wait 2 weeks to start school because they have to get my program changed over which didnt click right there because they could have just put me in class that was open that is required of that program ok i started my first class in that program i changed over to and maybe a month later i seen on my account summary that i owed $2,290 for what they stated that i took breaks and on november 7 2017 when i supposed to start i didnt i explain to the buiness office that i spoke with my advisor way before my classes suppose to start and she said i will be fine and register me for the next session start date and also made them aware that it wasnt my fought that they set me out to wait until they do my degree change when they could have put me in class that they see open that will go towards that degree change but they didn't want to hear that i kept going back and forth with theses people at this school i spoke with my advisor a couple of times and she also stated that she does not see where they talking about i took breaks and she tried reaching out to the business office but they was not hear that so now i'm trying to see what i need to do to get this balance cleared up because i feel i'm not responsible for that they are trying bet me out some money this school is horrible and sad
I was enrolled in the FlexPath Program at Capella and it was the best decision I have ever made in my life. This program allows you to have almost all the control over the pace you complete the courses. During my time at Capella, I have learned a plethora of information that will help me become successful in the business world. If you are considering attending Capella, I strongly suggest you do. The staff is very helpful and the professors grade fairly. I enjoyed my time as an undergrad student at Capella.
Applying to Capella University was the best decision I made in 2017. I am a Part Time Learner and the flexibility of the glasses, and the content is very easy to follow and the concepts have all helped with my career to include career advancement. I'm a future graduate.
Needed to finish my undergrad and wouldnt have been admitted to traditional programs due to poor academics from the inital college experience. Employer also offered discounts for Capella so applied and was accepted. For those that are in the same situation and need a BA/BS, schools like Capella are the only viable option even if they arent seen as real schools. Courses are what you make of them. For someone who enjoys writing, they were very easy. Not sure if it was just my instructors but grading seemed less than critical. In courses where we shared assignments, I was a bit aghast by how poorly written assignments were yet assumed they were graded well regardless. Had one extremely poor instructor and luckily dropped their course. For the most part their instructors seem to be engaged with teaching but like everything, there can be a bad apple in the bunch. The only real negative I can think of is that the school does not take plagiarism seriously. Small infractions are not seen as an issue so someone plagiarizing a paragraph from another students paper isnt going to turn heads.
Every representative in every department is unhelpful, and some are actually extremely combative and rude. They completely lied about my transfer credit evaluation, stating that I could complete the degree in a year because of my previous coursework. As it turned out, it would have taken me over 2 years. They automatically enroll you in courses that you do not choose, and then refuse to withdraw you from them when you request it. Then they charge you for the courses. You get zero help with your courses. The tutors just tell you to use the library. They use Turnitin for their papers, which causes the instructors to automatically reject papers they feel are plagiarized, even if you have valid citations. The tuition is EXPENSIVE and the quality is POOR.
