Dr. Lisa D. Bell - 9/20/2018
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016
"In a busy, fast-paced life...Capella University's on-line programs made it possible to complete my career and educational goals. At the time of my enrollment (in 2012), I was a single-parent, I had just been promoted to a new position in my agency and could not spend the time away from my small child that I knew a traditional university would require. Capella University had great instructors, a rigorous academic path and made it possible for me to complete my doctoral degree in 4 years. For students looking for a credible, on-line learning community and academic program... I would recommend Capella University."

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014
"I love Capella and often recommend it because it didn't require me to take time away from things such as work and getting married like my undergraduate degree did. I was actually able to start gaining experience in the field WHILE working on my degree! It also allowed me to work so I didn't have to choose between work and school. It was flexible enough that I could easily work my schedule and home life around what I needed and still complete my work! I thought it was very easy to use and that you get offered choices of where you want to graduate and complete your practicum. It was great and if I do go back, I will use Capella again because either had a great experience!"

"Capella University was the best choice for my doctoral goals and dreams. The curriculum was established with a foundation of sound business practices and learning objectives. The faculty are experienced and knowledgeable in their respective fields, and the learning goals are success oriented. The choices one has are immense, but the final decision is the key for your future. Capella University was mine and I have completed my doctoral journey and have pride in the choice I made. Capella University checked all the boxes I required for success!"

"It is very well laid out and the preregistration process makes it easy to go from class to class. The only academic plan allows you to pace yourself throughout your courses of study. My instructors are awesome and give great feedback in a timely manner and are very supportive. You should try this online school. It is worth it!!!"

"I took the FlexPath to get my MBA. It gave me the flexibility to pursue my degree while working full time and having a family. I could work at my own pace and got support from professors and tutors when I needed it. I am so glad I made the decision to get my MBA, because I feel a sense of accomplishment and it will further my career."

"Capella University's FlexPath program allows me an incredible amount of freedom to study when and where I need. The customer service has been excellent: my Enrollment Counselor made sure that FlexPath would be the right fit, and she helped me plan out the program's courses to best match my needs. My FlexPath Coach keeps me on track and helps me manage my Academic Plan. She's been there for me through ups and downs. The Writing Center, Tech Support, Library services and Faculty respond within a very reasonable amount of time, and they always want to help. I love being able to re-submit an Assessment up to three times in order to earn the highest score possible. FlexPath is for truly motivated people who are willing to manage their time. I began in January of 2018, and I hope to complete my work in June of 2019."

"This is my second degree with Capella College. I recieved my Master's degree in Human Behavior in 2017. The courses fit the degree and the instructors were very insightful. My experience with Capella was great which allowed me to advance my skills and knowledge as well as return to complete my PhD with them."

"Capella teachers brings out the best in you. After each term, a light switch turns on, bring out the best in you. In every term there is always something new that you have not learn and again bring out the best in you. Why I mention the best in you, the way your learn, write seems to get better with each term, teacher that you have. With different style of teaching, you always bring the style you had learn from the last term to the present term. Achievement is accomplished by bring out the best in you."
