"I did not graduate from Capella University. I went there for a total of 4 classes before I found out they lied and were not accredited to provide an MPH degree. Many employers require an MPH to have specialized accreditation called the CEPH. I live in California and in order to get a state job my degree must be CEPH accredited. Capella advisors talked a big game about accreditations, discounts, scholarships, fast trac, etc. I specifically asked if they were accredited for giving out MPH's and the person said yes we areā€¦ bull. tried to apply for a paid internship and the employer said that I have potential and would love to take me on but they wouldn't because the school I was using to meet the requirements for an MPH internship was not properly accredited. I was so pissed, I called up the advisor and they kept saying they were accredited and the advisor was only referring to being regionally accredited despite me asking over and over if they had a CEPH. After going through the CEPH data base of schools who met the accreditation Capella was not on the list. I then withdrew from the school and got F's for the two classes I was enrolled in at the time. Capella talks a big game but be aware what accreditations you need for the degree you are seeking and I suggest not to trust the admission advisors when they say they have them. Go to the specialized accreditation website and do a search for the school in their database first. I take some of the blame for not checking myself via the CEPH website, but they also said they had the accreditation. Also the classes I took were not transferrable to a CEPH MPH program that I am now enrolled in through a local California college. If you want an MPH degree, don't go to Capella."
