Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that the prons of graduate school out weigh the cons. Financial aid for graduate students is definitely a pro. There are not many choices. Pros are expanding learning and learning more profound ways of thinking.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Graduate school in an online program decrease the use of transportation and the stress of being in a classroom setting. Stressors in a graduate online program include the lack of ability to make genuine connections to students and faculty.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Capella online campus is very technologically savvy, even if you are not. They have an abundance of online and offline training to make sure that all students have an opportunity to hone their technological skills. The professors and academic advisors are very helpful, though they are sometimes difficult to touch bases with live. The work load is composed mostly of reading thus far ( I am a 1st year), and much of it pertains to the licensing requirements for your state so to be sure there are no misunderstandings, incorrect expectations, or overlooked required curricula. This type of instruction definitely requires dedication and students should be aware that structure is imperative, especially if you must share your studying time with other life obligations.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I transferred from another graduate school and have been very pleased with Capella. I find the classes to be stimulating with the appropriate amount of work. I am taking on-line classes and this offers its own set of challenges. Capella does a great job with preparing you to be an on-line student before you even begin your first class.

Capella University offers a curriculum specific to the Public Administration domain. The coursework is relevant and interesting. Learning online facilitates my schedule and reduces the overall demands of attending college.
