Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate school programming at Capella University is excellent. The coursework has really helped me to hone in on my skills as an educator and get me to think outside of the box when it comes to teaching. Faculty are also always easily accessible and ready to help at a moment's notice even though this is a distance learning school. I would say there are no cons to my graduate program because everyone at the school works towards making sure that you are successful in your program.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

Capella University is great for working adults. Professors are supportive and accessible. The PH.D. program is challenging and rigorous. One major con is that the program is too long. I have maxed out my student loans and is now paying out of pocket and trying to apply for scholarships because the dissertation process takes forever to complete! Nevertheless, I do not regret attending!

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Capella offers more than just a degree program, they provide many opportunities for us online learners to have communities, they provide a ton of support in every area, the resources that we get included with tuition are phenomenal and I believe that it's worth every penny. In comparison with others that have gone or are currently going I believe my education far outweighs theirs and that I will be better prepared for opportunities to come.
