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.
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.
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.
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.
Being a mother of two active boys ,advancing my education further , seemed impossible . But Capella provided me with an opportunity to not only study but also advance my career with their flexible schedule. I could not be happier. Furthermore, I have received two promotions since I graduated and what do you know! My job is partnered with Capella as well.
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.
Capella was by far the best online experience I have had (which is two) and the staff are amazing and supportive to each student! The residencies are life changing!!!! The program is well put together and instruction is clear and concise! What an amazing experience I have had! I would recommend Capella to anyone!!!!!
In a busy, fast-paced life...Capella University's on-line programs made it possible to complete my career and educational goals. At the time of my enrollment (in 2012), I was a single-parent, I had just been promoted to a new position in my agency and could not spend the time away from my small child that I knew a traditional university would require. Capella University had great instructors, a rigorous academic path and made it possible for me to complete my doctoral degree in 4 years. For students looking for a credible, on-line learning community and academic program... I would recommend Capella University.
I love Capella and often recommend it because it didn't require me to take time away from things such as work and getting married like my undergraduate degree did. I was actually able to start gaining experience in the field WHILE working on my degree! It also allowed me to work so I didn't have to choose between work and school. It was flexible enough that I could easily work my schedule and home life around what I needed and still complete my work! I thought it was very easy to use and that you get offered choices of where you want to graduate and complete your practicum. It was great and if I do go back, I will use Capella again because either had a great experience!
Capella University was the best choice for my doctoral goals and dreams. The curriculum was established with a foundation of sound business practices and learning objectives. The faculty are experienced and knowledgeable in their respective fields, and the learning goals are success oriented. The choices one has are immense, but the final decision is the key for your future. Capella University was mine and I have completed my doctoral journey and have pride in the choice I made. Capella University checked all the boxes I required for success!
