Degree: Health/Health Care Administration/Management
Graduation Year: 2019

Capella University has been a great online college. I was very hesitant at first to enroll in an online only classroom setting; however, everyone from the enrollment advisor, financial aid reps, and academic advisors have been very helpful in guiding me. I only have great things to say to anyone that may be looking to return to school in an online only capacity.

Degree: Educational Leadership and Administration, General
Graduation Year: 2018

Capella University is a great institution. My final class ends December 2017 and I will have my Masters Degree in Nursing. I plan to attend March 2018 graduation. Capella offers every resource needed. The advising team is awesome and always have the answers needed to guide the learner. The key is not wasting time and focus.

I was afraid to go back to school, but Capella really made me feel comfortable. I not only received my Masters while attending Capella, but went on to pursue my PhD. I just successfully completed my first year and am excited to continue my educational journey.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

I have attended several online programs and by far Capella is the best. The resources and support that the scholars receive through this program are tremendous. The professors are very knowledgeable and informative. They assist their students in being successful. They want you to succeed and not fail. There is no better institution to study at; Capella is GREAT!!! Come see for yourself. L. Brown

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

As far as their classes - they have a pretty good curriculum. I wanted to change programs to Human services and was told not to do that. I then decided to go to a school that was located in my city, that was when the financial part went crazy. As for the financial department, they are by far below standard.These people are horrible in their billing practices. One they send dispersments out then two weeks later send a letter stating you now have to pay you tuition. This was because they can not "officially" charge FASFA again for the semester- illegal! Second My new school received a flag on my FASFA, come to find out they are STILL billing me for a class I never attended and I had already filled out the paperwork to transfer. These people are a joke and should not be trusted with anyone's money!

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Shortly after getting my BSN, I began contemplating if I should pursue a MSN degree. I knew that I did not want to sit in a classroom anymore so I looked into online programs. During my search I found the Capella website user friendly. I was able to have most of my questions answered from the website. However, once I spoke with an admissions advisor (B. N.) I decided to enroll. He was very encouraging. Also, I liked that I could access a class on a trial basis to determine if Capella was for me.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

When I began researching possible Masters levels school, the selection is overwhelming. They all have their selling points. What works for YOU? That's the school you need to be involved in. I am so pleased with Capella. The professors are all awesome and make you think, dig down and really resolve/understand the assignments. I did in fact try one of those schools that you go at your own pace but was totally left out there. Just pay your money and turn your papers in. Then I found Capella. Everyone from my advisor to writing coach to faculty want you to succeed. It's the best decision you'll ever make!

Degree: Marriage and Family Therapy/Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

Going to a college online is a real challenge. It requires so much more of the student than the traditional college or university. The programs are pretty awesome and make sure that you know what you are talking about when you get that degree. The professors in the Masters program are experts or veterans in the field. My program, every professor is a counselor with at least 15 years experience. Some of them are still practicing in their field, but they take the time to help you. The students at Capella are helpful in the course room and in social media. We follow each other on Facebook and other platforms. I would say to take the free tester course and see if you can do this. Find a group on Facebook for Capella students and start asking questions. If you are working, create a self care plan and get your family on a schedule so you can take the time to study, you will be expected to write a lot of essays at the Masters level.

Degree: Adult and Continuing Education and Teaching
Graduation Year: 2020

After I began to research online PhD programs I was very interested in Capella's program because it provided a thorough description of coursework, comprehensive exams, and dissertation expectations. I also received a pop-up chat line that answered questions I had concerning the PhD program. I then received a call from an enrollment counselor who really explained the admission process. I was impressed with the professionalism I experienced and decided to apply to the doctoral program. The process was simple and the staff were extremely helpful. As an adult learner, these are qualities I looked for when deciding to return to complete my PhD. I have referred others and would continue to do so because I am proud to be affiliated with Capella University. I have completed several courses and feel the faculty in the Education program truly want their students to be successful. I would highly recommend this university to anyone wanting to experience an online education. Thank you.
