"I had a great experience with Capella. The advisors were great and instructors were very helpful. It is a rigorous program and a lot of writing and researching and strict deadlines to adhere to. If you're one that is self motivated and good at time management, this will definitely be the program for you!"

"Capella offers a great program and offers blended learning through research, interacting in groups and in the classroom with other students. This structure challenges your thinking and knowledge and opens up a whole new world of deep and analytical thinking. It also allows students the flexibility needed, particularly for those who work and are also earning their degree."

"I am currently enrolled in the MS in Clinical Psychology at Capella University. I am glad I chose Capella and feel confident in my studies. Everyone at Capella has helped me grow as a student and professional. When I graduated with my undergraduate, I knew I wanted to further my studies and I looked at many online programs/schools. I found Capella to be the best fit for me and my family. The professors at Capella are awesome to work with and very helpful. I have learned so much already and I look forward to furthering my education with my Doctorate."

"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."

"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."

"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"
Horrible practices!

"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!"

"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."
