Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Capella University is the best helping students and future learners to achieve their goals and dreams beyond what a student can think. The curriculum and courses are set to achieve the desired knowledge that you wanted. The professors, staff, and academic advisers are helpful and supportive in everything the student needs. They will work on your time. You will never want to stop learning. I graduated my master's degree in Psychology 2016, but I did not stop since I know it is doable in this University to continue my education in the Doctoral Program. I am in my dissertation phase now and doctoral candidate. I will never be going to achieve this success without proper help and support from our dedicated professsor. I am proud to be CAPELLA STUDENT! For those future learners that want to achieve their dream come and be Capella alumni.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2015

Capella University performed a formidable job recruiting me and promising a PhD in General Psychology within two years. Furthermore, they did an excellent job exhausting more than $100,000.00 of my Student Loans and in the end, using the excuse that I did not pass a Comprehensive Exam that they encouraged me to enroll three times to retake, they performed an Administrative Withdrawal. Within the four years spent at Capella, my doctoral level performance seemed superior, until I reached the COMPS-DISSERTATION phase. In the end, after thorough investigation, I, along 53 other learners in similar situation, discovered that during those years, prior to 2013, they did not meet the requirements to offer a PhD in Psychology nor did they have the appropriate statues in place, according to the Minnesota Higher Education Affairs. In all, Capella University is a scam and they certainly are the best in utilizing a switch and bait system to entertain you, and in the end withdraw you, making you feel like a failure, most certainly leaving you with thousands in student loan debt and without a degree.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2019

I wanted to wait until after I completed my program to write this review, but am confident I can give a fair assesment without having achieved my final milestones. I work in higher education at an online college, and I have earned other degrees at various online colleges. If you put forth minimal effort, that is what will show in your grade; online college is not for everyone. I chose Capella because at the PhD level they were slightly more affordable and they were regionally accredited, which is important to me. From their admissions rep, to advisors and financial aid, everyone was extremely accessible and I found thier SIS to be very user-friendly. Thier coursework was challenging, the instructors were experienced and knowledgeable and the coursework was reasonable for the degree program. The dissertation residencies were brutal, specifically the coursework leading up to it! But when I got to dissertation, I was totally prepared! I would highly recommend this college to others. In online education, it exceeded my standards. I am proud to say I attended this college and I look forward to graduating with my PhD this year (4 years after I began)!

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2020

This is my second degree with Capella College. I recieved my Master's degree in Human Behavior in 2017. The courses fit the degree and the instructors were very insightful. My experience with Capella was great which allowed me to advance my skills and knowledge as well as return to complete my PhD with them.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2020

This school is a poor choice. The instructors do NOT teach. You ask questions and they say read the syllabus or the book. They do not give you clear directions. And when you have an issue you get bounced around and no one ever helps you find any resolution. Sooo dissatisfied. This experience has cost me a lot of money (over 150k and still going) and even more anxiety and stress.

Degree: Industrial and Organizational Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

One of the best decisions I have made! After much research and evaluation of institutions which were willing to adjust to my busy schedule, but also with knowledgeable professors as well. Capella has proven to be the institution I have validated was an accurate choice. After completing my doctorate degree I felt that my professional career as a Business Coach has exponentially grown (intellectually and financially) and I have acquired a level of competency to service well organizations and C-level leaders. Thank you Capella.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007

I attended Capella University because of time and convenience of distant learning. I have done both brick and mortar and distant learning as a student as well as a professor. My preference is distant learning. it is more intimate between the student and the professor. I have sat in b&m classes and the instructor never knew my name outside of being on a class roster. In each distant learning course I had contact, email, postings and telephone calls as well as Skype with my professors. Capella is the same accreditation as any brick and mortar school. Many b&m use distant learning in their course work as well. The quality of my education based on the Capella format I will compare to any other school. I'm proud of my degree and never feel any reservation about stating where I attended my doctoral program. If you go into this with the idea "I pay my money and I expect a degree" you are fooling yourself. This is a tough, rigorous, ethical, academic degree. You will only get out of it what you are putting in.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I was looking for a program that allowed me flexibility, but that also challenged me. Capella University has done both. I feel have gained valuable information on my program and would definitely recommend it to individuals that are initiators. Magdalena

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008

The PhD in I/O Psychology I earned at Capella University has served me very well. I went to a land based Masters Program so know what a graduate program should look like. It was extremely difficult. I was held to high standards by all teachers but especially by my mentor and dissertation committee which included a Harvard grad. I am mystified that people don't calculate the cost of their program until they are well into it. If you want to be handed a degree this is not the place but if you want well-qualified teachers who grade according to appropriate standards for doctoral candidates then consider this school.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2004

I enrolled at Capella University in June of 1999. I Graduated in 2004, and I am extremely happy that I was able to find professional growth. This academic institution will work only for those that are willing to put in hard work, and are dedicated to become an erudite scholar. Thank you for the opportunity!
