"I was in a lost place of my life when I came to a realization that if I wanted better, I needed to bite the bullet and go to college. So here I am now 26 years old and in my third year of Capella about to graduate. I love this school and would recommend it to EVERYONE! Yes, there are certain things that people would rate poorly but overall I never had a major concern or situation that contacting the school could not fix. I am a proud Capella Student."

"Capella is an excellent university. The professors go to extreme lengths to make sure you understand the material. The online course room is laid out in a format that is user friendly. Capella is my third online college that I have attended and is by far the best. I do not think I would have gotten as far as I have with my PhD without these professors. I would highly recommend Capella to any student no matter if they are adults returning to school or new graduates out of high school. Capella University has truly made an impact and a difference on my life. Thank you Capella!!!"

"My goal is to graduate no later than August of 2019. I began my journey in January of 2018. FlexPath is the exact program I needed. I have received all of the help and support I have asked for throughout the entire program: Enrollment Counselor, FlexPath Coach, Writing Center, Financial Aid, and Faculty. I cannot believe I am already 83% of the way through. I am ecstatic! My Enrollment Counselor and FlexPath Coach worked with me to make sure that the courses I took are the ones I needed. All classes I have studied thus far have been useful immediately in my own school and classroom. FlexPath lets me work when/where I want and need. I am loving the online program."

"I'm a single mom who needed a fresh start. I was working a dead end job, living paycheck to paycheck and I thought that, "this is how my life is going to be". I then came across Capella University while I was online looking up new jobs. I applied, got in, and have been a grad school student ever since. This program is opening so many new doors for me and my daughter. In am so excited to graduate, get my license and being a career. There are so many opportunities that await me and I am truly blessed. I owe everything to Capella. This was the best decision I ever made."

"Capella University is the only University that I am aware of that offers FlexPath to earn your degree. This is an awesome program that allows you to work at your own pace as long as you meet a minimum requirement and work on your own without classroom based instruction. The campus website is extremely user friendly and there are so many resources available if you need assistance."

"If you would have asked me two years ago if I would attend school for a bachelors degree I would have said no. I was completely happy with my associates degree. However, I wanted to change jobs and was looking for a higher level of management position and as it turned out my associates degree was not sufficient. If I wanted a Nurse Manager's position I would need a Bachelors Degree. So, the search for an accredited online university began. In my search I researched different RN - BSN programs, the requirements of attendance, the time-frame for completion, the cost, and my ability to attend while working 50+ hours a week. I was getting very discouraged with my findings. Finally a colleague heard me talking about my futile search for an online university and told me about her experience with Capella. I immediately researched Capella's programs and their reputation. I was very pleased with my findings. I then contacted them and after talking to the registration counselor submitted my transcripts and was soon accepted. Their RN- BSN FlexPath program made getting my Bachelors Degree very easy. I was able to work at my pace, at times completing two courses a quarter. The cost was very reasonable offering a price per quarter not per class, so to save money completing more courses per quarter I was able to keep costs down. The course material was very relevant to being an effective Nurse Leader and is helping me with my new position as Clinical Nurse Manager. I would highly recommend Capella University to anyone who is interested in advancing their degree whether it be online or by attending classes."

"Capella University is the best helping students and future learners to achieve their goals and dreams beyond what a student can think. The curriculum and courses are set to achieve the desired knowledge that you wanted. The professors, staff, and academic advisers are helpful and supportive in everything the student needs. They will work on your time. You will never want to stop learning. I graduated my master's degree in Psychology 2016, but I did not stop since I know it is doable in this University to continue my education in the Doctoral Program. I am in my dissertation phase now and doctoral candidate. I will never be going to achieve this success without proper help and support from our dedicated professsor. I am proud to be CAPELLA STUDENT! For those future learners that want to achieve their dream come and be Capella alumni."

"I was apprehensive at first to enroll in an online university. I saw an ad for Capella's FlexPath program and decided to pursue a BSBA. Jaci Thiemann (Capella Enrollment Specialist) helped me sooo much getting started and after enrolling, it took me only 2 semesters to finish my degree. If you are a "go-getter" then the FlexPath program is suited just for you. I loved everything about Capella and can't wait to obtain my MBA from them."

"I loved the program, but the for profit part is an issue. I'm so far in debt I will never see the end before I die. It's a shame because I would have liked to have gone on for certificates, another master's or a PhD. As far as the education, there were a few holes but over all I feel I was well prepared."
