"DO NOT DO IT!!!!!! Read this CAREFULLY. Their program requires 88 credits. Do a simple online search, most others require 60. All of their courses are 10 weeks long. Most other MSWs are 8. More course work, and more money for your degree. Their internship requires TWO SITES/SUPERVISORS. This is a MAJOR pain in the ass if you’re a working adult with limited options. The practice education team is TERRIBLE. They don’t respond, they don’t care."

"Speaking from the heart. Capella has provided me with the confidence I have been lacking in the last several years. I have become my best advocate in my career. It has helped me challenge myself to do more, be more, and encourage more to do the same. At the same time, Capella has taught me to be humble and understanding that not everyone has the ability at the same time, to do what they need to reach their goals. Goals can be attainable, but it is up to each unique individual to determine their path. I highly recommend Capella for their approach to the learning platform and how learners are regarded; as people, as learners, and as the future of our world."

"I do not recommend this school at ALL! Not support from advisors or professors. Adobe connect is the worst, it never works. I do not recommend this school to anyone. To top it off it is very expensive. I enrolled here since they offer tuition assistance for spouses and I was looking into an online program so when we PCS school can come with me. But I do not recommend capella at all."

"So far, the experience as a Master of Social Work (MSW) student at Capella University has been above and beyond excellent. The instructors are competent, cooperative, receptive, and also tremendously passionate about the social work field. During residency, we are given an opportunity to interact with fellow students and the faculty in person to gather important information that may help us succeed throughout the program; there most activities include but are not limited to lectures, small- and/or large-group exercises, role-plays, etc."

"I have been in the MSW program since July 2016. I am taking one class at a time because I have a full time job and a family that keeps me busy. If I chose to take a 2nd class, it would limit my time with my family and I'm not willing to make that happen. I love spending time with my family and would like them to understand that school is important, but so is family. We all continue to make sacrifices, but it is with the understanding that mom is going to get a better job and be able to help more people. Capella provides me with opportunities to learn and grow within my profession, which is exactly what I need. I continue to find that each class gives me invaluable insight into my current job in case management. I am able to talk with my clients on a deeper level and gain insight into what they are dealing with and how I can help them. I highly recommend this program to others seeking an MSW as it provides not only online education, but real world value. Another great aspect is the residencies. I've completed one and the experience was amazing. I learned so much in that one week, it was intense, but so worth it! Good luck to you in your endeavors and I hope that you choose Capella!"
