It is really nice to be able to get your master's degree from your own home!

The best thing is that it allows you to be a student while maintaining a job, however, the cost can get expensive.

The graduate program at Capella offers a unique chance to be taught by working professionals in the field of your choice. The program challenges students and teaching is modeled through realistic examples and anecdotes from the field. The camaraderie among learners is second to none; I am still in contact with learners I met in my First Course and have followed them throughout our graduate degree. Ultimately, I will be proud to say my degree came from Capella.

School is too expensive. Should be on a by credit hour charge vs a set amount for the quarter. Thanks!

The pros of my classes because they are online and convenient for my everyday activities. I love the fact that I can log on at anytime to attend to my work and still be able to spend quality time with my family. Also, I can balance my full and part time job as well.

I thoroughly enjoy being a graduate student through Capella University. There is a strong support system from both faculty and other students. The program is extremely effective and flexible, which is great for me since I also work full time. So far I have not been disappointed by anything that Capella University has to offer.

The courses are very challenging, so I know that I'm getting a high quality education. However, sometimes, the workload is too much,especially for a full time mom and full time employee.
