Capella offers excellent and intellectually challenging educational instruction in a flexible, and student-centered learning environment. I feel strongly that each of these elements are critical for student satisfaction, retention and overall success.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Academically, I am doing excellent in my academic performance. My GPA is 3.08. I am pursuing Ph.D. in Public service Leadership, specializing in "Social and Community Services." My main problem now, is lack of money to pay for my two remaining (Ph.D. Colloquiums) that are coming up in Fall quarter 2014, and Winter quarter 2015. I am disabled, as a result, I am not able to work. The costs of these two Colloquiums have to be paid from my pocket, and I do not have the money to pay for them. I will appreciate if I can be considered for the scholarship. Thank you for your generiousity for my education. Sincerely, Nuka D. Nleka.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe this is an excellent program and I have grown to love the process of online learning. The staff is both knowledgeable and helpful. I am able to work at my own pace and they allow me the flexibility to continue working full time. After 20 years, I am finally fulfilling my personal goal of getting my masters.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

The professors are available often and have insight that is valuable for developing individual's careers. The only con is that contacting the academic advisors is really tricky and at times a very lengthy process.

Degree: Psychology

The pros for me would be being able to do my work on my own time. The con would be is that its too expensive.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I think that this graduate program is very efficient. Being online can be considered a pro or a con. For me I considerate as one of the biggest pros of the university. I am paying for my graduate degree so to be able to work while attending school full-time was a necessity and I was able to schedule the times that I worked on my school around my work schedule. That made it very simple for me to manage my time. Another pro was how helpful the counselors, advisers, and professors were. From the moment I began looking into the program I was in contact with an education counselor who guided me through every step of the application and then helped me with registering for classes and receiving financial aid. The staff was never unavailable. Some cons I found were that the expectations were not always clear. Through the online program I had to navigate multiple links for one assignment. This could often times become confusing and when I wanted to go back to somethings I had to remember what link it was in. They definitely tried to make this as simple as possible but for me it could get confusing at times. Overall this has started out as a great program and I am very pleased with my decision to attend Capella University online to receive my Counseling Master's Degree in order to reach my goals!
