"If I could give this school a -5/5 stars I would. The only good thing about this school is the flexibility of the flex path to be able to complete your classes when you can while also working a full time job. Aside from that, good luck getting ahold of a coach or a professor. The fact that this is an online school and not one person is available 24/7 is insane. Unless you get tuition assistance/financial aid or finish your degree in 3 months you'll be paying loads of money. 3,500 plus more fees here and there every 12 weeks. Oh and if you're still enrolled in a class into the next billing period you'll get charged 3,500 again. Capella shorted me 6 weeks of financial aid for this academic year and I was on my capstone class but because I didn't finish it within the billing period timeframe I got charged 3,500 that I now have to pay out of pocket. The professors and coaches don't help you whatsoever, they basically just tell you you could do better and make you feel stupid. I got told if I didn't finish my class before the billing period ended I'm screwed and there's nothing they can do to help me. Steer clear of this university and save yourself some money."

"I graduated nursing school in May 2021 with my ASN from a local community college. By December 2021 I had my BSN. I did Capella's RN to BSN Flex Path. I think people who review this university negatively are those who do not want to take the initiative and do their work. This is not high school. This is adult life for people who are working adults who want to advance their education. I personally found it very challenging to be disciplined and get my work done, but I went in with the mindset of doing my degree ASAP and pay as little as possible. I started in July 2021 and by December 3, 2021 I was done with my BSN. This is a serious test of discipline. If you cannot commit to being disciplined I would recommend a brick and mortar school to obtain your BSN or MSN. I am contemplating doing my MSN now at Capella too, and with Flex Path."

"Please avoid this school! Surprise fees and bills. One of the financial aid representatives all but admitted Capella is meant to rob students. You learn virtually nothing by wiring paper after paper and pay far too much money for the horrible education"

"I am working full time as a nurse, so 40 hours a week working Monday - Friday. I needed a school that is flexible and allow me to go fast at my own pace. I was determined to finish in 1 semester. I only had to do the core classes (8 classes total) with 4 papers each for the last 7 courses, the first being 3 papers; a total of 31 papers for my BSN. I completed my BSN in 11 weeks (1 semester), which cost me only $2,800 (after military discount; would have been like $3,200 or something like that). I would have finished in a month and a half, but I was just too lazy to go day after day with papers. I averaged one class every 1.3 weeks (again would have been a class and a half every week but too lazy). Papers are super easy to write (except for 4030, that was a bit difficult but def doable in 1 week). Let me know if you have any questions."

"Terrible experience. I got duped by their quick and easy sophia elective/gen eds. I paid a few hundred bucks to get some electives done only to find out I couldnt' transfer them because of some bogus policy that stated I couldn't use them past 10 or 12 weeks into my first term. No wiggle room. Nothing. Two courses down the drain. Advisers are inept. I was supposed to be in the combo program, then I found out that due to a lack of information I had already completed a course I wouldn't have needed otherwise. So let's mark down 3 unnecessary courses I could have avoided. I'm sure this is all just to roll me on for more terms, make this take longer, and soak more money out of me. Jokes on them. I am taking my money elsewhere for my MSN which I initially intended to finish with capella. DO NOT GO HERE. Bogus policies, tricks, scams, and I just feel broken after all this c***. I could write a novel of how bad this experience has been, but I'm so exhausted with it."

"Do NOT go to this school! Absolutely no help from anyone! They take your money but you are on your own! No tutor will ever get back with you and the instructor just says she is busy with other students! Not user friendly at all!!!! No customer service"
