  • Graduation Year: 2012
"It took me 6 year to complete my B.S Business Administration. My whole Capella experience was amazing. I can only speak of my own experience however the class rooms, staff, administrators, class mates were amazing. It took me 6 years because I worked long hours but committed almost every night to complete my degree. I made a commitment to complete my degree not make excuses why the school, professors, etc were to blame for my failures. I earned my degree, period. Finally, I am so proud to be a Capella Alumni. Oh yeah, this degree helped me to pay off my school debt."

"I had a great experience from beginning to end. The recruiter, coach, tutors, and professors were awesome. The staff was encouraging and supportive the whole way through. I had searched many universities prior to choosing Capella and was so glad I chose well. I am 56 years old and had graduated with a nursing diploma in 1985. What a journey and am so proud of my accomplishment."

"I absolutely love my experience at Capella University. The staff have been wonderful to work with and truly do want the best for their students. When issues have sprung up in my life, the professors at Capella have been so understanding and have worked with me on due dates so I could get my personal life straightened up. The staff are also so quick to respond to e-mails and help with questions that one may have. Lastly, I am so glad that I feel like I am actually learning. The curriculum is hard, but through studying you can persevere; you will always feel like you're getting your money's worth at Capella. This is especially true when you experience residency for the first time-- so many other students and faculty are sharing experience and offering guidance. Hands-down the best decision I ever made with my education."

  • Degree: Business
  • Graduation Year: 2019
"My experience with attending Capella University was great. The classes were very helpful and tought me new things about business, business managment, and leadership. My business managment studies also gave me educational knowledge of life experiences in the workforce about the different departments and how they operate. The final task of earning my bachelor degree entailed doing a GLO-BUS project. The projected was based off of information already setup by the a third-party website where students made their decisions based on real-life experiences and research to deter your company towards success in different avenues. From my experience taking business courses, talking to staff over the phone who were quick to resolve my situations, great financial services and rewards, and work flexibility I would higely recommend Capella University to any friend and family member."

  • Graduation Year: 2019
"I have always thrived in online courses. I tend to compete the reading and assignments quickly so Flexpath was a great option for me. I transferred 6 credits and completed the MBA program in 13 months. This helped me save money because the more courses I completed each quarter the more money I saved. I completed this entire program for under $13,000!"

"Outstanding experience! I completed the flex path program at Capella achieving a bachelors in business administration. If you are accountable and motivated to further advance your academic studies this is the right choice for you. There is no hand holding - you are responsible for completing the coursework and following the academic policies. However, if you do find yourself in need of advice my "coach" aka adviser was more than helpful with any issue. With my degree in hand, many doors have been opened that weren't open before and I am making $15k more annually."

"I was unsure of a school that was all online. After talking to three different schools Capella seemed to be the best choice. Then I started my program. I am in my second year and I love it. Capella has so many resources to help you do your best. I have recomended Capella to many people and my best friend has started taking classes with Capells. It has given her a purpose and a furture to look to."

"The Flex Path format of the Master's Program in Teaching and Learning has been a win-win situation for me. It allowed me to work at my own pace and get the support I needed from the initial call, enrollment and during the course work. It was not easy. Yet, it was very rewarding to be able to get the work done and experience immediate results with the competency-based curriculum."
