Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2021
"I have been attending Capella since Jan 2019. I was told that Information Technology would be the way to go. I agree but told them I was into the programming aspect of IT and they didn't even have a sub-program for my interest. So I started on my MS in IT, when I went to select my courses, I found two programming courses, THAT WAS IT. When I asked my Academic Coach (used to be Advisor), they didn't have the answers regarding more programming classes. That was actually the first time I heard from my so called advisor in nearly a year after sending her email after email about stuff, never hearing anything back. Academic Coaches are a joke, they stop talking to or helping you after you complete enrollment. Reaching any kind of counselor is a joke as you never can reach one. Classes are always discussion post, replies, assignment of either paper or using a program you have to download then you really don't get any feedback except a generic great job or good read. I was doing a MS in Social Work but found the work tedious and not teaching me anything. I was in one class and everything I turned in didn't meet the requirements for the assignment even though my wife, who is about to graduate with her MS in Social Work from Capella, said I met all requirements. I complained about the professor, she gave me an F for the course for complaining and nothing happened to her. I immediately switch to MS in IT but because of that bad mark, I was forced onto academic probation until I got above a 3.0 again. It took me nearly 7 months to do that then I get dropped from this course I'm in now only 10 days after it started but classes start on Monday, not Friday. I managed to get back into the course but I fear I may be done with this university after this course. I'm looking at the U of A in Arkansas where I live to finish my Masters and move on to my Doctorate. If I keep going, my student loans won't cover the cost of my Masters and all of my Doctorate because they are overcharging and not requesting enough at times especially when I'm a full-time student so I need the refund of what's left over to survive. If you are thinking about attending this university, please please please don't. You will regret it as I have and I'm going to share this site with my wife so she can find a different school. They are not cheap, customer service or student services doesn't exist. They don't care about your work or effort you put into something so they give generic cookie cutter feedback comments. If you work a full-time job, I don't recommend going to this university at all. If you're a full-time mom, I don't recommend this university as they have no feelings when you need to turn in an assignment a day or two late because you have a sick kid at home. All they care about is the amount of money they can take in every semester. Their FlexPath program is a joke and they force you to take classes that have absolutely nothing to do with your degree. For example, I'm currently enrolled in Emerging Technologies, IT workers don't worry about that because the company buys the equipment, yes you can recommend equipment but IT department will never recommend something that doesn't exist yet. Anyway, please stay far away from this business if you can."
