Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the pros of my program has been my interaction with my recent professor. My professor was very patient and humble which made me comfortable taking this online class because I was able to reach my professor and she gave quick responses. I also like that there are teacher assistants who take the time to reach out to the current students within a certain degree program and offer advice and assistance. The one con of this school is that there is no ground campus where I live which would have made it more convenient for me to have access to a computer if I experienced any technical issues with my personal computer at home since I am an online student.

The school does challenge you, if you are looking to do this for yourself, you are motivated to learn and at the end of the day the three letters behind your name are your ultimate goal then this is a great place.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

Capella University offers a regionally accredited and recognized Doctor of Business Administration program. The faculty and staff are dedicated professionals capable of extending world class business insight and experience for aspiring business professionals like me which are definite pros. There is no substitute for quality education. The educational environment and delivery platform are both technologically innovative and user-friendly. Capella excels in its core competencies which ultimately create competent students and future business and academic professionals. I am proud to be part of this dynamic curriculum and program. The cons however have to do with the changing landscape of education, delivery systems, and costs. these are cons that all institutions face; however, Capella faces them remarkably well.

Degree: Criminal Justice

Overall, this is a great school. Capella offers challenging courses as well as all around support for their learners. Because it is fully online students get to learn at their own pace which makes it great to find a balance in my everyday life.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Cappella University offers an amazing program for graduate students pursuing a psychology degree. I have never felt more supported nor have I ever been pushed so hard to become nothing less than an exceptional, responsible, and diverse scholar.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

It was quite a transition to move my learning experience to an online medium. The faculty are engaged for the most part, and the rigor of the content during my first time has been impressive, as it has been more of a load, with more intensity, than I experienced at a R-1 Landgrant state university.
