Capella University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (466)
I am currently enrolled in the MS in Clinical Psychology at Capella University. I am glad I chose Capella and feel confident in my studies. Everyone at Capella has helped me grow as a student and professional. When I graduated with my undergraduate, I knew I wanted to further my studies and I looked at many online programs/schools. I found Capella to be the best fit for me and my family. The professors at Capella are awesome to work with and very helpful. I have learned so much already and I look forward to furthering my education with my Doctorate.
Capella University has been a great online college. I was very hesitant at first to enroll in an online only classroom setting; however, everyone from the enrollment advisor, financial aid reps, and academic advisors have been very helpful in guiding me. I only have great things to say to anyone that may be looking to return to school in an online only capacity.
Capella University is a great institution. My final class ends December 2017 and I will have my Masters Degree in Nursing. I plan to attend March 2018 graduation. Capella offers every resource needed. The advising team is awesome and always have the answers needed to guide the learner. The key is not wasting time and focus.
I was afraid to go back to school, but Capella really made me feel comfortable. I not only received my Masters while attending Capella, but went on to pursue my PhD. I just successfully completed my first year and am excited to continue my educational journey.
I have attended several online programs and by far Capella is the best. The resources and support that the scholars receive through this program are tremendous. The professors are very knowledgeable and informative. They assist their students in being successful. They want you to succeed and not fail. There is no better institution to study at; Capella is GREAT!!! Come see for yourself. L. Brown
As far as their classes - they have a pretty good curriculum. I wanted to change programs to Human services and was told not to do that. I then decided to go to a school that was located in my city, that was when the financial part went crazy. As for the financial department, they are by far below standard.These people are horrible in their billing practices. One they send dispersments out then two weeks later send a letter stating you now have to pay you tuition. This was because they can not "officially" charge FASFA again for the semester- illegal! Second My new school received a flag on my FASFA, come to find out they are STILL billing me for a class I never attended and I had already filled out the paperwork to transfer. These people are a joke and should not be trusted with anyone's money!
Shortly after getting my BSN, I began contemplating if I should pursue a MSN degree. I knew that I did not want to sit in a classroom anymore so I looked into online programs. During my search I found the Capella website user friendly. I was able to have most of my questions answered from the website. However, once I spoke with an admissions advisor (B. N.) I decided to enroll. He was very encouraging. Also, I liked that I could access a class on a trial basis to determine if Capella was for me.
I was looking for an online school that was military friendly and offered the degree course that I wanted. Capella turned out to be that school. The staff is so helpful and my fellow students are amazing and hardworking students. I would highly recommend Capella University to anyone!
When I began researching possible Masters levels school, the selection is overwhelming. They all have their selling points. What works for YOU? That's the school you need to be involved in. I am so pleased with Capella. The professors are all awesome and make you think, dig down and really resolve/understand the assignments. I did in fact try one of those schools that you go at your own pace but was totally left out there. Just pay your money and turn your papers in. Then I found Capella. Everyone from my advisor to writing coach to faculty want you to succeed. It's the best decision you'll ever make!
Going to a college online is a real challenge. It requires so much more of the student than the traditional college or university. The programs are pretty awesome and make sure that you know what you are talking about when you get that degree. The professors in the Masters program are experts or veterans in the field. My program, every professor is a counselor with at least 15 years experience. Some of them are still practicing in their field, but they take the time to help you. The students at Capella are helpful in the course room and in social media. We follow each other on Facebook and other platforms. I would say to take the free tester course and see if you can do this. Find a group on Facebook for Capella students and start asking questions. If you are working, create a self care plan and get your family on a schedule so you can take the time to study, you will be expected to write a lot of essays at the Masters level.
