"Capella has changed for the better. To make the programs better I would like to see Capella offer more labs. There could be a balance of the work load expected of students by adding more labs it will give students more hands on experience and better prepare them for jobs in their fields."

"Great online program that still provides the needed face to interaction but flexibility to work and complete school at the same time. The program is also accredited and they will work with you to make sure that you stay on track for all of your state licensure requirements."

"Capella offers a competent and professional experience that prepares learners for the real world with applications and instructors who offer experiences to learners. The fact that Capella is CACREP accredited is reassuring to learners for licensure, over some that claim accreditation, but are not. The material challenges the learner to research outside the box in the chosen career field."

"I entered Capella in January 2016 after I graduated May 2015 with a bachelors degree that I had no interest in pursuing. I knew that Capella was the right school for me within the first two quarters of classes. Not only were the staff helpful, support and kind but my classmates were as well; which helped to make the experience that much more enjoyable. I had to attend two residencies with the School Counseling program and the knowledge and awareness I gained from those experiences are genuinely priceless. I also have gained an incredible amount of friends and resources from my classmates and professors. I dont have a single bad thing to say about Capella and the education that I have received."

"Choosing Capella was the best decision I have made for my Ph.D. Program. The counselors are there to help you every step of the way. Some people may feel that counselors should be contacting them, but it is up to you if you are willing to put in the effort to keep in contact with all counselors and advisors for your needs. It is easy to set up appointments to meet with advisors and teachers. All of my teachers have been helpful and friendly. Both faculty, students, and former students are available to help you with your questions you have about your program and classes. If you have any questions about attending Capella do not hesitate to leave a comment or contact an advisor at the University and they will be happy to assist you."

"I love my courses and time management is the key! Not yet finish, but I am staying on the right track. My C.P.A. program is perfect. You have to stay focus and complete all assignments and quizzes. If there's problems teachers and faculty is always there to help."

"I finished my degree August 2016 and graduated from Capella in March, 2017. I owe $145,000 in student loans which I have had to defer ever since my time limit of 6 months expired and the payment is $1400/month. the worst part, I can not get a job. I am on 8 different websites, trying to get a teaching job online, teaching teachers, which is the reason I pursued my degree. It has been 16 months since I completed my degree and 8 months since I gradated. I owe a tremendous amount of money and can not get a job in any capacity that reflects my degree. I have called Capella and the only help I get is referred to their online help center, which I have used. Think LONG and HARD before beginning a degree here. I don't know that I would do it again. The debt is debilitating and there is very little to no help with obtaining a job. It's been beyond disappointing."

"This is my first course at Capella University. My professor is awesome! I find it very satisfying to have an advisor who responds to my questions and concerns, a professor who is knowledge in the field, welcomes the opportunity for correction, a university that offers opportunities and resources that are valuable. Technology is a function that we use daily. I have my books loaded through the app from Vitalsource bookshelf. Everything is accessible, and I find that to be important for students."
