Capella Ambassador - 8/21/2016
Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019
"I am currently attending Capella as master's degree student in Marriage and Family Therapy Counseling. This is my first time attending an educational institution as a online learner and I can say it has continuously been a positive and rewarding experience. The professors and academic staff are great! The coursework has it's challenges but that is expected for a higher level degree. I am looking forward to finishing my degree at Capella! :-)"

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016
"Good School, good program. I tried other online schools this one worked the best for me. I've worked in the industry for 26 years and still got plenty out of the program. I started the MS IAS Program and have 6 classes left on that, good school, good programs... Excellent value."

Kristina Kula-Wright - 8/19/2016
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018
"The most important aspect of Capella University is their accreditations with the higher education and CACREP program. When I decide to attend an online college, it was important that they were CACREP approved and this school offered the CACREP program compare to the nearest ground college in my town. The majority of the professors are great and professional in their approach and ethics. The professors will fail you if you do not do the work. I have missed some of the directions in the coursework and received lower grades because I missed the mark. However, I was pleased to see that they care enough to make sure their students are doing the work and not just passing the students. Society tends to put online colleges down and that a brick and mortar college offers a better education. However, this is not the case because with Capella. They have the accreditations that are the same as some of the ground colleges (if not higher expectations) as a ground college and offers an individual to work full-time and obtain a higher education."

Jesse Thomas, MPH - 8/18/2016
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2019
"Capella University has been a wonderful catalyst for lifelong learning. I attended a wonderful public land-grant University for undergrad in my early twenties. It helped develop soft skills required for success in my career. Now that I'm in my early thirties, brick and mortar is not practical. I had to find an online institution that was well received in my field, regionally and nationally accredited, good value for money, and allowed for flexibility in scheduling (military). Capella fit all criteria for my Master of Public Health degree. Combining field experience practicum, interaction with working students, and academic rigor only built upon my previous University experience. I graduated with my MPH in 2016 and have decided to pursue a terminal degree. I am a current doctoral student at Capella and wouldn't have it any other way. Higher education is an investment in one's self. For my field of study (health policy), the benefit out weighs the cost. I invite others to truly sit down and assess their college plans. It is a major investment in time and money so be realistic in the decision making process. Capella was a great fit for my criteria and for my program. Good luck in your school search."

Shannon - 8/18/2016
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016
"With twenty year's experience in the healthcare field I already knew a lot about healthcare. Cappella was instrumental in helping earn my bachelor's degree in six months. I was able to quickly prove what I already knew and focus my time on what I needed to know."

Jordan - 8/18/2016
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016
"I decided to pursue a Bachelors degree and spent many hours online researching schools that best fit my busy life and my professional goals. Capella was one of the many schools I researched and from the moment I talked with an enrollment counselor I knew that this was the place for me. I have encountered some of the best people along my journey and am looking forward to graduating in December of this year. I have referred many people to Capella and plan to continue my own education with them in the future!"

Donna - 8/17/2016
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"I am currently in the DNP program/Nursing Leadership. The program has been both challenging and rewarding, and as with any doctoral program, sacrifices are to be expected while matriculated. Every resource is available to make a student successful, one needs to just reach out to the school for assistance. Doctoral candidates are paired with a mentor to guide them through the dissertation/capstone process. Yes, the work, reading, writing, revisions of work are just that - work. But it is my work, my final product, and one which to be proud."

The Best Academic Experience of my Life - 8/17/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"From the first time I called Capella to the commencement, I only have positive comments. Capella was very challenging, yet staff and faculty cherished our successes. They were highly supportive from the beginning to the end. I can honestly say that I had the best academic experience at Capella. Very organized, challenging, creative, and supportive!"
