It was a great school and I just wish it was more live classes where you can talk directly to the instructor.

Online school, it works as long as you are disciplined. I went to a campus school for my bachelor's. I recommend going to a campus for undergrad, it is a good experience

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

Capella University's Master's in School Counseling program was awesome and is accredited. The professors were well versed in school counseling topics. I was amazed by the array of experience each professor had. Even though it was an online program, the professors helped make it more comfortable allowing you to get to know the other students fairly well. Whenever I called my advisor or had any questions about my program, the Capella support team was excellent. My questions were always answered. I would complete the program all over again!
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Since I made the phone call to inquire about obtaining my PhD in Nursing Education, the Capella University staff and faculty have been extremely supportive and accommodating of my needs. The support for doctoral learners is excellent. From admission, you are encouraged to begin assembling your ideas and searching the literature regarding your potential dissertation focus. The coursework is extremely relevant to my role as a community college nursing instructor, so I get to apply what I have learned. The application piece is the most rewarding because I can return to the classroom and reflect on what took place. The online library and staff are awesome with readily available resources to support your success. There are many other areas, such as the writing lab and use of SmartThinking, where your papers are reviewed and critiqued prior to submitting them for a grade. Capella is a wonderful place for online learning. Take the first step and contact one of the admission representatives.
