Student & Graduate Reviews

3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I have received 2 degrees from Capella University. I decided to continue to pursue my MBA because I wanted to take a different career path than I was on. The overall program was great. I felt the instructors had experience in the field and was able to help me with any questions along the way. Because I am a retail manager, online school was the only way that I could finish my degree. But I decided that I wanted to break into human resources because that is the part of the job that I liked. But I would suggest that anyone looking to get into a different field try to find a mentor and get some typed of experience in that field. Although, having the degree is great, it is not enough for one to make a transition.

I really enjoy attending my doctoral program at Capella university. I have recently transferred to the program from NYU. My academic coach is very helpful and understanding. There are a lot of writing assignments, professors are knowledgable and helpful. I would definitely recommend the program.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2020

After having attended 2 online colleges in hopes to finish my masters, I came across Capella University. My previous experiences were not great so I was hoping for a better experience. I definitely got what I hoped for! Everybody I've encountered has been truly wonderful. They're knowledgeable and quick to help. They walked me through the entire process and explain everything when I have questions. I'm halfway through my program in Human Resource Management and I couldn't be happier.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Capella University is a great online forum for students that work fulltime and have family commitments. I feel I have received a fantastic education for my masters, as welaa for my PhD. The clinical and residency requirements go above and beyond to incorporate book work and studies with real life clinical situations. I would recommend this school to anyone needing the flexibility of going to school online!

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

I found Capella University to be an excellent choice for a PhD in Information Technology. As a full-time employee, student, and single-parent, online education was the best choice for pursuing a terminal technology degree. The residential requirements were intensive educational experiences that prepared me for the comprehensive exams and dissertation phase of the program. The faculty were responsive and knowledgeable in their respective disciplines. I would recommended Capella University to future students.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Capella made being a single working mother and going back to college for my master's degree very easy. The course rooms were simple and navigable, the campus library was easy to use as well as finding and using resources available to students who needed help with a course. Tutors were available at all times and professors were quick to respond to any questions I had about my lessons. I love Capella so much I am now attending a Doctoral program through them

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Capella University was an excellent choice for me. Being a stay at home Mom and caring for a special needs child made it hard to attend a traditional school with Capella I was able to accomplish my educational goals. The courses were great and communication with my instructors were always open.
