Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2013

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!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

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.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2022

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.

Degree: Mental Health Counseling/Counselor
Graduation Year: 2020

Capella University has it all. Highly skilled professors, academic advisors, online technology and provides an online library with endless peer reviews scholarly journals, reports and publications. Peer collaboration is enough to give one the classroom feel without the time constraints of traveling miles to meet at inflexible times. Support is available all throughout the learning experience and while it is a lot of hard work, I wouldnt trade this experience for any other college.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I received exceptional support from the Enrollment Counselor, the Coach and course instructors. I appreciated the consultative approach allowing me to set the pace to proceed faster or slower. The interaction with the tutor program was a bit hit/miss, some with great insight and others just copying and pasting what was already in the syllabus. Overall, it takes personal sacrifice and dedication along with open and honest communication with your coach and instructors. The Capella FlexPath program was exactly what I needed to accomplish my undergraduate goal.

Degree: Mental Health Counseling/Counselor
Graduation Year: 2018

I enjoyed my time with Capella University from the years 2012-2018. I obtained my bachelor degree in psychology and then entered into their master program for Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I was introduced to this field after my brother lived with me for six months. He had to attend an alternative school after being discharged from a psychiatric hospital. I feel in love with the field psychology and mental health disorders. Individuals who attend Capella have to work hard because the program is for people who genuinely want to learn. The coursework is fast paced, integrative, comprehensive, and rewarding. The counseling programs has their students attend residency twice during the program to make sure the student is competent in the field of counseling. There is no quick fix or no doing the homework without consequences. Most of the professors and the university are easy to work with; especially, when personal life interferes with deadlines. Individuals need to be proactive and notify the professors a head of time. I graduated with a 4.00GPA and on the president's list because I was dedicated in every semester. I was organized with binders, printed out each unit week, filed all homework on my computers, read every assignment, did every homework assignment, and worked full-time occasionally throughout the Capella journey. About 98% of my classmates obtained employment from their field sites or found new careers. However, this student was in the small percentage that did obtained a job after graduation. My professional opinion is due to not working in the professional field during my internship and that have little experience in the field of counseling. Most employers want somebody who has a degree and two years experience in the field. I do not regret my decision to attend an online education because I was a later adult who decide to attend college. I should not be punished because I did not follow the tradition route of ground schooling. I was a very busy mom and employee during the last six years while obtaining my degree. I will keep looking for employment in hopes the right door will open.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Capella is a school that understands the life of an adult, parent and worker. The instructors are very accommodating without lacking content and education. My advisors and support team were very accommodating. They emailed and called me to just see how things were going. Whenever I had a question I got a response in good time.
