I feel the overall grade should be more of a 7 or 8/10. I am challenged and involved in the coursework and really enjoy the process. I feel I am getting an extremely effective education and experience.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently finishing my doctoral degree in Public Safety with a specialization in criminal justice. Overall, my academic journey has been challenging to say the least. However, along the way God has put in my path instructors who were committed and supportive of my education and research plan. I thank God for the quality of knowledge and instruction I have received thus far!!

Program is very educational. I am learning a lot about Information assurance and cyber security. I am confident at the completion of the program that I will be able to move into a position in security.

As a current graduate student at Capella University, I have been able to find pros and cons of for being an online student. A definite pro of being an online graduate student is that it is extremely easy to work around my schedule. I am full time teacher working 630am-330pm Monday through Friday. Once I get home from work I can choose what time I would like to do my homework. A con of this program is that it is often difficult to get help from the professors or interact with classmates because it is an online class. Sometimes it is harder to get one on one work when being enrolled in an online program. Overall, the pros and cons don't do justice, as Capella University has been an outstanding experience for me!

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

While it is a structured program, it is online, which allows me some flexibility to complete work when it's convenient for me and in the comfort of my home. I have not had any significant issues with anyone at the school and everyone is very helpful and customer service oriented. My professors realize that I am a full time employee and a full time student and have worked with me when issues have arisen (such as a death in my family). I completed my Masters degree at Capella and enjoyed the experience so much, I went back for my PhD.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

This is my second year at Capella University and I loving every minute of this experience. Some of the pros are the following: It on my time, even through there are deadline for assignments and discussions, I do not feel pressure like I did in undergrad. I love that it gets right in to the subject matter and I am able to research subject matter I like to write papers on. Some of the cons are the following: The cost, I understand school will probably never be free, however when you graduate from school you will never receive a job that pays enough to pay the debt. There is not instant feedback like in a school setting when you are on line. You have to wait for the professor to respond.
