"Capella University Guided path was just what I needed. I was 45 years of age when I decided to go back and get a degree and with a busy full time job and full time parenting, I was a little worried on how I could get a degree during everything else. The school advisors walked me through the first year of how to set up courses and determined what was best for me to teach me how to plan out my future success. It was a huge help. With Capella's writing assessments, it meant I didn't have to sit and cram for an exam, so it speak, or memorize unnecessary works. I simply had to take what I have learned and write a specific topic to complete a course. Oh! and the courses are designed with the adult learner in mind. Everything about this school has led to my success, not just as a student, but in my career."

"I am a single mother and working a full-time job as well. I am currently working towards my Master's in Human Resources. Capella has made this journey easy simply due to the online classes, counselors, professors, and Dr.s that teach classes. The staff is very knowledgeable and has brought awareness to ideas in areas of the realm of the Human Resource world I would have never thought of. Any time I have called Capella with a question or concern they have always had answers and were very prompt with the answers. This includes financial aid to academic planning. I feel the program I am in is very valuable and I have witnessed the things I have learned being implemented in my current workplace."

"I was a transfer student from a New York State university and most of my credits were transferable. I chose the FlexPath Program which would allow me to complete my degree program faster. I completed the program in 20 months and then went on to pursue my Master of Science Degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology. The Capella FlexPath program allows me to take as many courses as I can complete in a 12 week billing session. It did take some getting used to as all of my previous on-line courses required classroom discussions, completion of only one module at at time and I had to wait until the next semester to take other courses. FlexPath allowed me to complete the courses as my own pace and some courses were completed in only 6-8 weeks as I did not need all 12 weeks. As soon as a course was completed, I just clicked a button indicating the course was completed and within just a few short hours, my next course was ready to go. Capella offers all the tools necessary for one to succeed in their academic journey as they provide a FlexPath coach, tutor for each course, and a knowledgeable faculty. The faculty gave very useful feedback on each assessment which helped me better understand the competencies for each course. I'm an older student who decided to go back to college many years after high school graduation and I must say, with my degree, I was able to get a state government job within weeks of completing my Bachelor of Science in General Psychology through the Capella FlexPath program. I highly recommend Capella University's FlexPath program to anyone wanting to complete their degree by actually understanding what they are learning and given the opportunity to apply that knowledge in their day-to-day lives as well as employment."

"From the very beginning of my career at Capella University, the advisors were knowledgeable, resourceful, and provided information of programs that would be useful in my future professional goals. Each professor has made themselves available to assist with any questions or concerns as well as provide several opportunities to enhance growth in the rigorous assignments that are required in classes. Each quarter students are able to look in advance to see when things are due which gives an opportunity to devise a schedule to ensure students are able to meet deadlines. Through readings and interactions with peers, students are able to apply knowledge they have learned and receive feedback from fellow peers and their professors. As a MFT student, I have learned more about the importance of family involvement in treatment as well as gravitated towards the narrative family therapy approach which views clients as resourceful and competent enough to overcome adversities through the help of the therapist uncovering their strengths."

"I completed my undergraduate degree at University of Hawai'i at Manoa in Dental Hygiene. At first, I was skeptical to apply to the MBA program at Capella University because I had absolutely no background in Business. The only business-related course I took in college was Speech, if you even want to account for that. Capella University and their MBA program was a fit for me and my lifestyle because everything was accounted for online and I could "attend" classes when I had time. I am a full-time wife, mom (4-year-old boy), and dental hygienist (about 10 hours/day). With the hours I work, I was unable to attend a traditional university with business classes only on-campus, even with their evening class schedules. I am very happy I chose Capella University. The faculty were very attentive, informative, and understanding of emergency situations I had no control of. I was able to finish my business program in about 26 months- initially, I was pursuing a Masters in Public Health but switched to Business Administration 2 months after being accepted into the program. Capella University worked for my lifestyle and I hope it works for other busy mothers/wives! Although I am continuing to pursue my dental career, I will be using my MBA in the Army Reserves as an Officer in logistics. If it was not for the flexibility of the online program, I would not have been able to pursue a Master's Degree."

"When I came to Capella I knew that I wanted to pursue psychology. I quickly learned that I wanted to pursue neuropsychology after a class I took and Neuroscience. You have to know or have an idea of what it is you want to do in through that passion will evolve or as you will be dependent on the drive to get you through school. You have to find that balance between work family and school if you put the time into it you will get more out of it. I am a mother of five, a children's author, and treated my schooling as a career. I will say this when you attend residencies you may feel that you don't know enough you may feel that it's too hard but believe in yourself because your instructors do and so are the class that you surround yourself with and there is something called fishbowl and I tell you from experience continue anxiety and go in there and when you do the mock roleplay talk to someone as you would talk to them and a therapy session show empathy and show them that you know what you've learned and the biggest thing in Psychology that we can give a client is insight and if you have that and you apply that you will be off to a great start. "

"Before enrolling at Capella University, my vision was frosted. I did not know where to start or how to start but I started. Capella helped with everything from financial assistance to advising. Since then, I own 2 companies, one of which is a consulting firm, Ezra Blaze Consulting Firm, LLC North Charleston, South Carolina, and Entebbe, Uganda and GonZaga International Company, Ltd., Headquartered in Entebbe, Uganda. In addition, I started my studies in Spring 2011 and graduated Fall 2018, I do not believe I would have been able to accomplish what I have accomplished without Capella and its support staff. The classes were relevant to my goals and I am still able to use the resources that were introduced by Capella in my business today. To anyone that is thinking of attending Capella University, I say go for it. All the best!"

"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."

"Capella has been a great college to attend. The professors are great and are there for you when you need them. Advisors keep in contact with you for the most part and help you along the way by helping you choose the learning guidelines that are best for you. Librarians and other writing assistance is provided when needed. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking to further their career in any field that is available at Capella University."
