Capella University Reviews - Bachelor's in Psychology
I have nothing negative to say about this school. The instructors, advisors, and customer service are all very nice and helpful. The instructors are all very knowledgeable in their respective fields. The only issue I had was an inability to finish my degree program due to maxing out my student loans. Apparently, it is commonplace for students to make it to their senior year and then have to pay the last year out of pocket. If you can pay your final year straight out of your pocket or want to get a bank loan to pay for it, this is an excellent school.
Stay as far away from Capella University as you can get. This school has the absolute worst faculty, tech support, library support, learner support, advisors, financial aid team and practices! They take your money just fine and then you are on your own. Want to actually learn something without a ton of aggravation and someone always trying to reach into your pockets for more and more money? Enroll elsewhere. This school has NOTHING to offer except deceptive practices, inaccessible resources, and absolutely NO ONE to help you.
I have attended more than a few schools of higher education in my life, from technical certificate programs to 4-year private schools. Capella has got to be the worst of them. They have no regard for students needs, preferences, etc. It seems as long as they are getting that financial aid money and keeping students quiet and enrolled, they are quite happy to do nothing for it. If you have a problem with any aspect of the school, good luck getting help to solve it. If you have a question about any aspect of your course or coursework, don't ask since you will NOT receive any answers, not even any guidance on how to find the answer yourself. Worst school ever! DO NOT ENROLL here!
I've attended community college and Liberty University online, but Capella is one of the best schools and the staff is very helpful. The price is responsible and the instructors and professors are professional and understanding. I love this school and I will be attending this to soon getr my Masters!
Capella University has been a great find for me! I started 4 years ago and will soon be graduating, super excited!! The flexibility of being able to go to class right in the confounds of my home in the living , with my children and not having to fork over money for day care was my greatest blessing. Anyone who's anyone who desires to go back to college and can't afford to leave your children or your current job situation (because just because your in school rent and bills don't stop) then Capella university is the right school for you! Good luck and God bless.
The individuals who "work" at Capella are the most difficult I have ever had the displeasure to deal with. As soon as they've got you signed up, any help they pretended to provide stops. They have many excuses as to why they can't provide things like answers to your questions, help with program advice, etc. Professors are mostly non-existent in courserooms. Grades are provided whenever they feel like posting them. Ask a professor a question and you MAY get an answer prior to the due date of the assignment but most likely NOT. Rubrics are vague and extremely subjectively worded - leaving interpretation of how you are graded to a "best guess" method. If you were thinking about this school - think again. NOT a good choice unless you like to spend money, and lot of it, for nothing.
