Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Being in the Army, this University works great with you especially for mental health counseling. The faculty and staff are very helpful and able to answer all of the questions asked. You get to interact with your colleagues and build everlasting relationships. The courses are very challenging but you are equipped with tools that you can use in your everyday life. The downside of going here and being in a strictly online program, some of the instructions are not very clear. Some instructors change their expectations and instructions throughout the course and it causes confusing for a lot of students. The good outweighs the bad with this university.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I've loved being an online student for Capella University. It allows me to continue my graduate studies while still attending to my family life and my work schedule. Face to face residencies are required which provides a lot of hands on experience with the course materials. I enjoy being able to work at my pace and work ahead if I choose to. I feel I've learned more at this school than I had in a brick and mortar university where the professors would simply read from the textbooks. The professors at Capella engage in the discussions to promote critical thinking. The resources that the university has provided have been a very valuable tool in my education.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the program is that it is an excellent school all around. The cons are that a student has to take out a big loan to cover the costs of attendance and residencies and students don't get paid during their internships in the school counseling program. The program has taught me so much and I am thankful to have the opportunity to attend Capella University.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Since my graduate program is online, a lot of specifics were not applicable. I like the online setting and educational objectives set forth by Capella. They have a rigorous academic plan for student achievement, provide ample support, and are fully accredited for several careers.
