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.

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.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I am enrolled in an Education program with specialization in Leadership for Higher Education at Capella University (online). I give Capella a thumbs up when it comes to features such as faculty access and support, use of technology, and for having a variety of online groups and communities for its students to participate. For financial aid, I would recommend a person really consider researching grant, scholarship, and loan opportunities, on the school's website and outside of Capella, prior to enrolling at Capella in order to be prepared for the financial obligation needed.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Taking classes while working and having a family is often difficult. Capella offers me the ability to take classes while continuing to work and have a family. Like any online college, it can sometimes be difficult to connect with other students and instructors. Time differences add to this problem.

Although Capella University offers expertise academic programs, the school should offer better Internship opportunities.
