"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."

"Capella University is a school of opportunity! Capella has afforded me access to a great online education as well as most of my instructors. The education and knowledge that I have gained in pursuing my degree is directly related to the internship expectations of the site and school. Time management is your best friend. "If I can change the way you think, I can change your mind. If I can change your mind, I can change the way you think, Kees, 2014." Be sure to set short- term, intermediate and long-term goals!!!"

"I was enrolled in the FlexPath Program at Capella and it was the best decision I have ever made in my life. This program allows you to have almost all the control over the pace you complete the courses. During my time at Capella, I have learned a plethora of information that will help me become successful in the business world. If you are considering attending Capella, I strongly suggest you do. The staff is very helpful and the professors grade fairly. I enjoyed my time as an undergrad student at Capella."

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018
"When I researched doctoral programs six years ago, I was skeptical of the online environment and went back and forth between Capella and an on-the-ground university. I decided to give Capella a try and I am SO grateful I did! I feel I received a top-notch education at Capella. The faculty and staff are dedicated, passionate, challenged and stretched me and were very supported. When I began the program it was not accredited and many of us expressed our concern as our degree is very specific and most job posting required a degree from an accredited institution. Capella listened and showed their commitment to the program by becoming an accredited program. Is the program hard you bet it is but it should be at this level. My expectations were even exceeded at the commencement ceremony. Capella did an excellent job of planning and delivering a day that is so important to me."

Degree: Education Administration

"I have had an excellent experience at Capella University. My enrollment counselor and academic advisors have been very thorough when providing answers to my questions and finding the correct answer is they are unsure. My professors have been very professional and have challenged me to be successful by incorporating expectations for a learner in a doctoral program. The learners I have encountered in my classes have been supportive and have shared experiences that assisted in the learning environment. Capella developed residencies that helped me develop a substantial dissertation research plan and feeling prepared to enter the world of comprehensive exams and begin my dissertation course work. If you are interested in financial assistance, the financial aid office is interested in helping you apply for financial aid that is appropriate for your level of course work. I would highly recommend Capella University for completing your degree....regardless of what level you education you are considering. Thank you."

Rich - 9/19/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"I have been an ADN for many years and thought it was time to go back to school. I enrolled in the FlexPath courses for RN-BSN program. Wow, what a great experience. The courses were relevant to my practice, evidence based and required me to use current research. It was interesting to see how the world of nursing has evolved of the years and the courses here made me dig deep and question what I already knew. It wasn't easy to go back to school and it took a lot of will power to stay on track. The courses were not easy, but not too difficult either. The staff at Capella were always there to help if needed and typically took care of any question or concern on the first call. I was impressed and recommend the program to all who want to go back to school, but they would like to do it on their time."

"The MFT program at Capella has been amazing. The interaction between students and faculty/staff is truly what you make it to be. You can be as involved and interactive as your schedule permits. That being said the 2 Residencies that Capella requires are fabulous. You meet person to person for the first time and work on theories and practices with each other for an intense, but fulfilling, learning and nearly unexplainable to someone who has not yet experienced it. The course work all builds on top of previous courses in a well managed manner, providing the best possible learning experience. The MFT program is dual certified scholastically, giving the learner the best of all possible worlds upon graduation."
