Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I entered Capella in January 2016 after I graduated May 2015 with a bachelors degree that I had no interest in pursuing. I knew that Capella was the right school for me within the first two quarters of classes. Not only were the staff helpful, support and kind but my classmates were as well; which helped to make the experience that much more enjoyable. I had to attend two residencies with the School Counseling program and the knowledge and awareness I gained from those experiences are genuinely priceless. I also have gained an incredible amount of friends and resources from my classmates and professors. I dont have a single bad thing to say about Capella and the education that I have received.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020

Choosing Capella was the best decision I have made for my Ph.D. Program. The counselors are there to help you every step of the way. Some people may feel that counselors should be contacting them, but it is up to you if you are willing to put in the effort to keep in contact with all counselors and advisors for your needs. It is easy to set up appointments to meet with advisors and teachers. All of my teachers have been helpful and friendly. Both faculty, students, and former students are available to help you with your questions you have about your program and classes. If you have any questions about attending Capella do not hesitate to leave a comment or contact an advisor at the University and they will be happy to assist you.

Degree: Accounting and Business/Management
Graduation Year: 2020

I love my courses and time management is the key! Not yet finish, but I am staying on the right track. My C.P.A. program is perfect. You have to stay focus and complete all assignments and quizzes. If there's problems teachers and faculty is always there to help.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I finished my degree August 2016 and graduated from Capella in March, 2017. I owe $145,000 in student loans which I have had to defer ever since my time limit of 6 months expired and the payment is $1400/month. the worst part, I can not get a job. I am on 8 different websites, trying to get a teaching job online, teaching teachers, which is the reason I pursued my degree. It has been 16 months since I completed my degree and 8 months since I gradated. I owe a tremendous amount of money and can not get a job in any capacity that reflects my degree. I have called Capella and the only help I get is referred to their online help center, which I have used. Think LONG and HARD before beginning a degree here. I don't know that I would do it again. The debt is debilitating and there is very little to no help with obtaining a job. It's been beyond disappointing.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2019

This is my first course at Capella University. My professor is awesome! I find it very satisfying to have an advisor who responds to my questions and concerns, a professor who is knowledge in the field, welcomes the opportunity for correction, a university that offers opportunities and resources that are valuable. Technology is a function that we use daily. I have my books loaded through the app from Vitalsource bookshelf. Everything is accessible, and I find that to be important for students.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Capella has offered me an intense study into the effects of technology on education, prepared me to feel confident to continue my research in the field beyond graduation, and given me the confidence to serve as a leader in my school. The professors are extremely real world driven many of whom are doing research along side their students to continue to make an impact in the field together. Collaboration, flexibility, responsibility, real-world application, etc. are just a few of the descriptors I would use to describe the opportunities I've received from Capella University.

Degree: Marriage and Family Therapy/Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The marriage and Family Counseling Therapy Program is a great program. It covers many aspects of mental health issues that plague our society. The program focuses on issues surrounding families as a unit. Although individual therapy is covered in the curriculum, its focus is healing the individual through family involvement. The MFCT program is similar to the coursework covered in tradional schools. However I would suggest studying hard and researching various books and videos to further your professional knowledge.

Degree: Mental Health Counseling/Counselor
Graduation Year: 2019

Capella is a phenomenal university. The staff at all levels create an environment that is conducive to receiving a quality education that will be useful in entering a profession or advancing your career. At Capella University, you are not just a number in a computer; you are a person to them. Throughout your time with Capella you are connected with an advisor who is there not only to help you plan your classes. They are also there to cheer you on, give you advice, advocate for you, and support you in any other way they can. The Mental Health Counseling program is intense. There is an IMMENSE amount of reading, but it is all important information that will serve you well in the future. Capella is the place for students who want to learn and want an environment that will encourage them to grow and thrive as a student, as a professional, and as a person.
