"STAY AWAY if you don't want to waste your money and through thousands of dollars out the window. The Instructors do not care, do not respond for help, the Tutor's do not care and do as little as possible to get what they are paid to do. Please do yourself a favor and select ANYONE Else."

"Capella University is not a school, it is a business, and they will seek to lure you in and trap you with hidden charges. I was halfway, HALFWAY, through a semester being paid for with student loans when Capella called me up saying I needed to pay $700 right then and there or would be dropped. I'm not made of money, what do you think the student loans were for?? I tried to drop the class to save myself any trouble, since I didn't have $700 and wasn't going to any time soon, they said it was too late to drop or get a refund, so I got a "withdraw" grade for the class and charged an additional $600 on top of that. Now they expect me to pay $1300 or else they won't release my transcripts. I need my transcripts to apply for financial aid at other schools, as well as to enter the nursing program, so Capella has ruined my life and I got nothing out of it at all."

"I did NOT graduate. With a family and too high of income at the time I cannot get any more financial aid. I also have applied for jobs in my field, but say I have no experience or am NOT qualified. I had 30 credits left and trying to work, and do school was impossible since all they want is money. They changed my program 5 times in the 5.5 years I went there part and full time, and even no time and took off because of financial aid. I'll look to get my credits transferred to another college to finish."

"I will tell every right now, save your money and go elsewhere. I am currently fighting a case against them adding more "required courses" in their flexpath program because they stated the required courses for their information technology major changed. I will be calling the Minnesota Higher Education offices tomorrow morning. It might be an accredited college, however, it is not worth the hassle, time, and money that goes into dealing with this school. Maybe their more expensive and regular college is not this bad, but their flexpath program is absolutely terrible. Don't even get me started on what happened when I needed help with an assignment. I waited days for an answer which caused my assignments to be turned in late. Seriously, save your money and go elsewhere. Hopefully the Higher Office of Education can help me where Capella failed to do so. All of this is currently happening when I am a month and a half away from when I was supposed to graduate."

Dissatisfied Student - 12/11/2017
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2020
"So I have attended Capella for a year as a IT major. The one thing I have found is that while some of their basic courses were of an okay quality their IT courses are a joke. I turned in several assignments that were intentionally of a very poor quallity and was still given an A. So if you want a degree with little to no meaning behind it this is an great school however I am leaving in favor of self education and obtaining certifications while building a portfolio to demonstrate my capabilities."

"I'm fairly a new student and currently taking my 7th class there. I was nervous at first going back to school since haven't been in such an environment in decades. I decided to go back to get a degree in what I currently have as a career: Information Technology. Having been an instructor in the IT field myself and having gotten various technical certifications over the years, I didn't think I'd learn anything new. I was wrong and actually enjoy the fact that a lot of the courses I've taken so far has not only solidified what I knew but also have enlightened me on the materials I did not know. The classes are very demanding and the instructors push you to think and I appreciate that. I am learning a lot and that's what's more important to me. So far I have not had any regrets."

Always Learning - 6/2/2017
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019
"I am currently enrolled with Capella's Flex Path programin and my experience has been great so far. I love being able to take control of my academics, allowing myself the time to research, implement, and create assessments accordingly. I do not feel pushed or rushed when it comes to submitting school work; To note, there are reminders, but for me, the serve as a push to continue chugging. Further, I may not be where I want to be right, but with the help of Capella University, I know i"ll be able to achieve my goals, one step at a time."

Perfect for work/life balance - 5/30/2017
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016
"I would highly recommend Capella for any person who thinks work/life balance and going to school is impossible. I transferred from a prestigious New England College that caters to young adults with rich parents. I am a veteran with a family and work full time. It wasn't until I transferred to Capella that I could actually envision completing my degree. The reason being, the professors go above and beyond to help you if you don't understand, fall behind or just need some extra motivation. The academic advisers are amazing and feel like close friends. They always keep your best interest in mind and help you not only realize your potential but also help you meet your goals. I can honestly say, I would still be going to school without the backing of Capella's staff to keep me on track and motivated to finish."

"Capella University is pioneering the way people can learn online. I used the FlexPath system and was able to complete my BS in 2 years. It provided me the flexibility to continue working full time and earn my degree. The courses are in depth and challenging as well. What I was able to learn I was able to apply in real-life situations regularly."

"I started part time in 2011 and with 30 credits to complete in 2017 left have exhausted financial aid. They will not work with me and just want money. The staff is either grading to easy or too hard, knowing my skill level. It was good at the beginning but now near the end they have no interest in allowing me to complete my degree. I cannot help that I work and have a family to support, they do not care. The coursework is easy but the technology in the classroom is sometime out of date and doesn't work. Most of the labs can be done elsewhere and they say they prepare you for CompTIA certification but it goes nowhere when you don't have time to complete the labs and take the tests for certification. If you want a great experience to start and are just out of high school this is a good place but if you are a working adult, don't fall for it. They will bleed you dry. I don't see myself ever completing my degree now as their credits don't transfer. They try to have your save money through Sophia learning but you have to come up with $350 up front per course. I can see why the grad rate is near 0 for undergraduates. Most of my fellow students have been in their fields for years and are just now completing their degrees. If you can't go some where else the don't go here."
