"I was a learner at Capella in the MBA program. I took three classes and passed all (with As.) Now some people applaud my "A's," but I tell everyone that EVERY STUDENT probably gets A's. They are the easiest classes to complete and I feel I learned very little in the 3 classes I completed. When completing my last final paper, I barely put much gusto in it because I knew I’d still get an A. And to prove it, I did it without much work. Sure enough – I received an A. I have transferred to private - REAL - school since then that I know will critique and grade appropriately. On another note, I also had issues with their financial aid department. On my third class, soon after the class was finished (and already paid for), I received a bill that I owed $1080. Because I receive partial education reimbursement from my employer, apparently now I owed them. It was never very clear why… even after I asked why this had never happened before. But that isn’t why I left. I left because I was embarrassed to call Capella my school when all they care about is money, not the quality of my education. I almost WISHED to get a B or even a C on an assignment just to have some real assessment of my work. Some people have said that maybe I’m just smarter than I think, but it is not the case in anyway. I have read reviews and have seen others bragging about their 4.0 status, but I should tell them now – don’t be proud. If Capella had an Honor’s system, every student would be on it. I work with two very intelligent men who are at two of the best brick-n-mortar schools in MN and they work incredibly hard to receive their As or even pass the class - up all night and studying every day. Capella doesn’t require this - it is maybe 5 hours a week working on assignments. But if you want an easy education – Capella is the school for you. I certainly was not proud to call Capella my school and I’m so happy I transferred out. If you want online, maybe University of Phoenix would be a better idea. But from now on, every person I talk to about schools will hear about my opinion of Capella. It is an embarrassment to higher education. Some good things about Capella: I don't blame the professors for the grading criteria. I have a feeling this is an institution thing. The Online Library - resources - is very impressive. To find academic resources was very easy and had a large inventory. I liked their iGuide as well. Technology was more than par."
