"The FlexPath program is perfect for my schedule as I work full time and prefer to learn online rather than physically in a classroom. The only complaint I have is the communication with financial aid and counselors. My personal counselor was always either "on vacation" or never responded to my emails. If I needed anything I would have to call Capella University and they would transfer me to another counselor to help me, usually having to wait on hold for long periods of time while being transferred from department to department. My counselor was also pretty rude if he did respond to an email and was never able to actually help me with anything besides registering for classes when I needed assistance with that. I don't understand why his role is needed at all since he obviously doesn't do anything. The financial aid department was also impossible to get in touch with. Every semester I had some kind of issue with them and would be on hold trying to resolve something for hours at a time. There where quite a few times the person assisting me had no idea how to help me and had to transfer to a supervisor. There where also quite a few times my call was lost and I had to start the process all over again. The actual academic part of the program I had no problem with, but financial aid and counseling where a nightmare every semester. If you are able to figure things out on your own, I suggest enrolling. But if you need any hand holding, this university is not for you."

"As a doctoral student in the School of Business Management, I have been impressed with the high calibre design of their online course rooms, and the quality program curriculum. The PHD program instructors seek performance excellence from their students. The doctoral programs are further in business enhanced by the addition of in-person onsite residencies."

"I have been enrolled at Capella University with the FlexPath program for almost one year now. I am pursuing a B.S. Degree in Business focusing on Management and Leadership. I do not understand the bad reviews. It is not the responsibility of the school to keep up with how much a student has in financial aid. It's the responsibility of the student to make sure the finances are there and to keep track of how much the student may need to pay out of pocket. They have chat available and a phone number for students to call. I never had any problems with financial aid or the military aid I receive. Next, my instructors have been amazing and if I needed help I would reach out to my tutor in which I had a response within a couple of hours. I work really hard on my assignments and my professors have always detailed what I could have done better in my papers if needed. However, because I strive and work hard to do my best, I really didn't need a lot of feedback. I am looking towards a Masters Degree or another B.S. Degree with Capella University because they have been incredible and I can't thank this school enough. As far as opinions on a degree mill? Universities such as UF, UCF, FSU, all reputable colleges accept credits from Capella University. Be responsible with making sure your financial aid is accurate. Work hard on your assignments, and reach out to your tutors. They are here to help and will help you! I am truly blessed that God placed me in the hands of Capella University."

"The Flex Plan Program is designed for the busy working person to work as your pace and you have 12 weeks to finish assessments. I am truly distraught at the fact that you are on your own. Meaning, you have no lecture, no videos, no help whatsoever.....only what you can find in their poor library and on the internet. Coaches(professors) only criticize your work and make you go to a tutor to figure it out when you have no clue what you are doing wrong. The cost, the grading system of Flex Path and figuring out what you are actually supposed to do is not worth the effort to sign up with this University. I love learning. I spend a lot of time on (where I learn way more than Capella offers. I have had another professor friend from another university look over the procedures for the MBA Flex Path Program and he was in total shock."

"My experience with attending Capella University was great. The classes were very helpful and tought me new things about business, business managment, and leadership. My business managment studies also gave me educational knowledge of life experiences in the workforce about the different departments and how they operate. The final task of earning my bachelor degree entailed doing a GLO-BUS project. The projected was based off of information already setup by the a third-party website where students made their decisions based on real-life experiences and research to deter your company towards success in different avenues. From my experience taking business courses, talking to staff over the phone who were quick to resolve my situations, great financial services and rewards, and work flexibility I would higely recommend Capella University to any friend and family member."

"I was skeptical of Capella because of the old saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is". I had early access before class started on April 8th and completed 2 assessments for one of my classes. Once I received feedback and saw how well I was progressing I picked up another class. Less than a week in and I've finished the first class and I'm 1 assessment away from finishing the second. FlexPath is IDEAL for me. I work full time, have two children, a husband, and a very busy life. I am able to complete these courses so quickly. Going into the program I had my Associate's in Arts Degree, and ALL of my credits transferred, leaving me with only 20 class requirements to get my Bachelor's. I cannot wait to see what else this program has in store for me. For those of you interested, just know that it's not easy material but draws from real life experience in the business world and hands on tasks."

"Please please do your homework before you choose this online program. You will need to read all the fine print. The flex plan is a farce. Their use of the black board is subpar. You must go to several different places to get the entire homework requirements. When you ask the professor a question, they respond with "ask your tutor." Seems like a waste of money paying a professor and a tutor. The professors are not on the same page when it comes to submissions. Some follow APA and some don't care. Just do your homework. Capella is not what they advertise."

"From attending a community college in Los Angeles to attending another college online, Capella accepted most of my credits I earned through an Associates Degree. Before enrolling, I was given information about their guided program and flexpath program. They were honest from the beginning and I decided to enroll in their flexpath program which was life changing for me because it was extremely flexible and cost effective. Initially, I had to take two guided courses and pass them which was explained to me at the beginning. During my time in the flexpath program, I did a lot of research. I feel that I gained a substantial amount of knowledge. Every time I had questions , I received prompt responses from financial aid or the student advisors. Overall, it was great experience for me. I do not regret attending this school at all."

"Do not enroll in the flex program. It is not what they advertise. Very complicated to navigate all the requirements. The classes are only 1.5 credits and are of the same requirements as a college or university who apply 3.0 credits to the class. I spent more time and money on plagiarism programs because the turn-it program does not work effectively."

"Before enrolling at Capella University, my vision was frosted. I did not know where to start or how to start but I started. Capella helped with everything from financial assistance to advising. Since then, I own 2 companies, one of which is a consulting firm, Ezra Blaze Consulting Firm, LLC North Charleston, South Carolina, and Entebbe, Uganda and GonZaga International Company, Ltd., Headquartered in Entebbe, Uganda. In addition, I started my studies in Spring 2011 and graduated Fall 2018, I do not believe I would have been able to accomplish what I have accomplished without Capella and its support staff. The classes were relevant to my goals and I am still able to use the resources that were introduced by Capella in my business today. To anyone that is thinking of attending Capella University, I say go for it. All the best!"
