Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros of Capella University= professors are competent in their field and willing to give feedback and support to their students. The admissions and advisors are very helpful and supportive. The online library is extensive. The students give a diverse community in the course rooms. Cons of Capella University= sometimes the course of 10 weeks goes too quickly. If a course as too many students, it is difficult to do group work.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending Capella University online for my graduate program in Public Administration was an excellent choice. Availability and ease of communication with faculty and staff is great. The instructors are pretty knowledgeable and challenge the students so I definitely feel like I am receiving my money's worth and not just breezing through the courses. I also love the convenience of the online courses with each course being 10 weeks long. Before I know it, I would have completed the program.
