Pros of the program is the online flexibility. Cons are the lack of support from the Dean to resolve issues

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I love being able to study from home during the times that work best for me. I do miss face to face interactions a bit though. I have never been let down by the faculty or tech support when I needed an issue resolved. I feel like I will be well prepared for my career. However, a big con to this program is having to find and arrange all the fieldwork and internships on my own.

Degree: Psychology

The pros of my graduate program are my academic advisor helps prepare me for my classes and helps me every step of the way. There are no cons that I find yet for my graduate program.

Degree: Counseling

Capella University is a great school to attend. As with any university, the cost of tuition, books, and extra fees are always a concern. I would definitely recommend this university to anyone!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently working on obtaining my Masters at Capella Univeristy and I must say that I am pleased with the school completely. Although the school is online, faculty and staff try to reach out to you as often as possible, assuring that you are on track and feel comfortable where you currently are. I see that the Capella community is vast and from all walks of life, which is a great thing . I truly believe that with Capella University, its staff, and professors on my side I can complete the program rather quickly.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that they need to have mentors that are available to focus on their assigned students. I feel also feel that choosing a dissertation topic and its approval needs to be done in an earlier semester.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Capella university is a great school. When I just started i wasn't sure that I made the right choice. After attending the first I changed my mind based on the care, encouragement and the support the staff gave me. My advisor was extremely helpfull, registration for me was a piece of cake. Every representatives had the willingness to make me understand the process. They went out of their ways to make I had my financial aid and I was prepare for the class. I felt extremely welcomed. Until now I'm still surprised. That is the fist time I attended an online school and I didn't regret.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The overall grade rating is misleading. Since I am an online student, I could not answer all of the questions. Because the overall grade was calculated with all of the questions and I could not answer it myself, it is lower than I would have put. If you are going to do that, you need a N/A column to take those questions out of the calculation.

I am an online student and therefore many of the questions do not apply to me.
