Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)
Graduation Year: 2016

The DNP program has been the biggest joke. I am well over the recommended number of quarters to complete my degree. There are road blocks every step of the way. I have wasted so much time and money....no internal consensus between faculty either, they all disagree on what constitutes an acceptable project. Some have raved about how great my project is, only to have it repeatedly kicked back for more and more. But if this for profit organization keep you in school, they reap the financial benefits. BEWARE.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is a joke. I went for my doctoral degree in Addiction Counseling, I registered for the first courses, and realized that the program isn't even nationally accredited! Then when I decide to drop the program and return my books, before the classes even start, the school tells me I can't return them!! I end up owing $279.00 in books I will never use. Just a horrible, horrible experience and I do not recommend ANYONE to attend this "school." If you're going to take online classes, try U of Phoenix or another more accredited school. Don't get scammed.

Degree: Mental Health Counseling/Counselor
Graduation Year: 2018

Mental Health Counseling I am working on my Master my classes are all on line. I will completed my coursework in a little under 3 years (I work full time). Thus far I've enjoyed my time here at Capella, My online classes are enjoyable plus it has really worked for me because of my full time work schedule. The teacher are willing to help, I've had no problems when calling the school about anything this far. As a new student i will tell you attending Capella University online learning programs require the learner to have discipline, dedication, and determination. It is not an easy ride- you must apply yourself.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2005

I'm so surprised by poor reviews of Capella. My experience was very rigorous (so not "fun") but well structured and professionally delivered. I gained enormously from the experience and my career has reflected that. You get out what you put in, as with everything in life.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Capella University and their Flexpath BS option in Psychology is a wonderful alternative to regular online programs. This program allows those who are busy as well as independent learners to move at their own pace. This program also provides support such as an academic coach as well as a tutor.

Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016

I was a bit skeptical at first, but after the first couple of weeks into my first class, I love it! The staffs at Capella are friendly and helpful. The adviser and counselors are great at coaching and providing information that I needed. The professors are very professional, and they have real life experiences in the course that they teach.

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I have been going to school for 2 years now and I am currently working on my PHD in nursing education. I love on line learning. The instructors are great and willing to help you any way they can. The tuition is reasonable but love the convenience. I work Mon through Friday and Capella fits my schedule

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

I have been left no choice but to write you as my efforts at Capella seem effortless. Instructors will grade the wrong paper, and keep the incorrect 7% score in the gradeb ook. Furthermore, the advisors (T.B.) do not return phone calls unless you make a "phone appointment by following the link in the signature of the email". In over a week, I have not received phone calls back from Dr. G. T.B,  F.H. or Dr. B. ,B-W., even though I left them all voice messages. I have been on the schools' Twitter page and Facebook to complain, but no one seems to care enough to contact me. I will be sending more email chains soon.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

As an accredited online university, it is build to accommodate those who work and have no time for traditional university. Plus the tuition is much cheaper! The advisors and professors are very helpful and understanding. In some cases they themselves are also graduates from an online program. As someone who has 3 jobs, i am able to comfortably incorporate study and homework time around my job. My hard work pays off tremendously because my professors are there with me, to encourage me and support me. They have a great team in the financial aid department. As someone who has never applied for financial aid, the team was very patient and informal about the process i have to take. As part of the program, one of our weekly assignments is to communicate in a discussion with our colleagues. As an online university, it attracts people of all ages and work background to come together for 6 weeks (per course) and work together. You are able to get a little insight on different industries each person works for and therefore give you a better perspective. It might even help you with you assignments. Whereas for traditional universities, you primarily have people in their 20's who have little to no experience in the work field. Either way, i am happy with the choice i have made in trusting Capella University with my future.

Degree: Educational Leadership and Administration, General
Graduation Year: 2017

The heatlh care environment requires nurses to have advance degrees. I was looking for an accredited university to obtain my MSN. I found Capella University to be extremely helpful in navigating my academic career. They helped me with course selection, grant and financial aid information, as well as continue to track my process. Their on-line library, blackboard, and course work is easy to use, and the support staff is always available. Their professors are wonderful, as well as helpful, and provide clear and insightful instructions to complete the course work. I would definitely recommend Capella University.
