"This school is a joke. Half way through the program I wanted to quit, but I told my self I should stick with it to the end. The semester I decided to withdrawal I didn't complete the course. The teacher sent me an email AFTER the course ended. I told him I was not intending to continue. He asked if I would answer a one question quiz in the class, so I did not thinking it would matter since the class ended. Well, because I answered that 1 question quiz I got an F instead of a W. THANKS!!!!!! Not wanting to transfer an F on my record, I started again. Still not happy with the program I stopped another course after week 4, I got an A in that class without having done work for 6 weeks. At that point I only had 4 classes left to complete the degree so I did. Thinking it couldn't hurt, right? Boy was I wrong,----- Employers are not hiring resumes with Capella University listed on them. This school was one of a very few with the program I went into which is the only reason I went there. Now I have an outrageous amount of debt, and no job thanks to this school. If employers think the degree is a joke then student loans from this school should be erased. Close this hungry money mill down. Anyone please start a class action law suit!"

"I graduate in Aug. 2017. I chose Capella University because a professor who taught at another university was getting her PhD at Capella. She told me how she really was enjoying her educational experience and how I should explore the Capella's opportunities as well. I really wanted to get my masters but I didn't want to sit in a classroom. I was so done with that! I wanted the flexibility to be at home and take online classes. I especially liked the fact that the courses were only 10 weeks! So I only took one class every 10 weeks. Very manageable! Online classes can be a challenge but with time management skills it's very doable. Professors are always willing to help and are always available, yes even online! Just try Capella University. You won't be disappointed. In fact, I'm starting a second masters January 2018!"

"This is an awesome academic program. The program is very user friendly. I am excited to have taken my dissertation journey here at Capella University. My mentor Dr. Hamilton has been an asset, supportive, resourceful and accessible to me when needed."

"After I read the catalog and not being sure of whether or not Capella needed the GRE for acceptance; I ended up calling them. After that one phone call, I was ready to start my first class within a couple of weeks. Capella's customer service is excellent. Call them! But be ready, because they will answer your questions very thoroughly and you won't have any more excuses to not attend Capella University for whichever of their wonderful career paths has captured your interest."

"Advisors are not helpful and are uneducated about the degrees and state requirements, of those degrees. Then get very snarky if you have questions. The license dept interprets requirements of your state vs. confirming with state. Fortunately I figured out, on my own, they had me in the wrong program. Currently applying to a different school."

"I started Capella in the spring of 2016, working on a Bachelor's degree in Psychology (general) I want to work in substance abuse counseling so I may end up going for a masters. I enjoy the online classes and in my classes have mostly been mostly positive."

"I have not completed my degree at this time but I would still like to share my current experience with Capella Universality. When I decided to get my M.S. in Forensic Psychology I searched many options and spent many hours talking to enrollment specialist. The Capella enrollment specialist was extremely supportive and attentive. My specialist allowed me the space I needed to make the decision best for me but also the encouragement to tackle the challenges I faced throughout the process of admissions. Capella's classrooms are seamless, they are broken down in a complete comprehensive view and process of the course. The instructors are very active and supportive. One of the best things about Capella is that I know I matter and any issues I may have will be addressed personally. Financial aid is very helpful, friendly and prompt. Attending Capella University was one of the greatest decisions I have ever made so I encourage anyone interested in higher education to start and stop with Capella, there will be no regrets. Staying Focused."

"Capella University is an excellent institution for adult learners. There online format is conducive to my busy work/life schedule. The faculty are knowledgeable and accessible, and services/resources are very student-centered. The online resources are exceptional! Even though you attend virtually, you do not feel like you are missing out on traditional campus-based resources like library and writing assistance. The resources and skills you need to be a successful online adult learner are available 24/7 via the University's virtual campus (iGuide). The tuition cost is reasonable and the course content and assignments are rigorous."

"I am currently enrolled with Capella's Flex Path programin and my experience has been great so far. I love being able to take control of my academics, allowing myself the time to research, implement, and create assessments accordingly. I do not feel pushed or rushed when it comes to submitting school work; To note, there are reminders, but for me, the serve as a push to continue chugging. Further, I may not be where I want to be right, but with the help of Capella University, I know i"ll be able to achieve my goals, one step at a time."

"When I finished my Bachelors degree I knew I had to continue my education to land a career that I would love, I decided to attend Capella because of the programs that I could chose from and the support from their staff. It was an easy transition for me and there wasn't a doubt in my mind that I would be successful in this new step. With that being said I decided to continue my education in Psychology specializing in Forensic Psychology and Applied Research. This step has been one of the best decisions I have made to a successful future."
