I really can't say that there are any cons to my grdauate program at Capella. I really love everything about Capella University. The faculty and staff makes sure that they are always in contact with their online students to make sure that they are understanding the work that has been assign for them to complete. I absolutely love this online University.

Capella online courses are very flexible for a person who works fulltime and has a family. I really enjoy learning and working with my classmates and my professors. There is a lot of positive inspiration at this school and they really make you feel welcome.

I absolutely love my program at Capella. The only con is that I wish it were live time interaction with the teachers.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Great program. Have to find internship places on my own....I wish there could be more help with that. It's also very expensive, with only student loans available for grad students in my field. Wish there were grants or scholarships available. It is an excellent program, however, and I'm enjoying it and learning a lot. The instructors are also clinicians and have lots of counseling experience. Most have doctorates also. They are very knowledgeable about the field directly.

The Pros of Capella University is that I'm able to study online at my own pace. The Cons are there is not enough Financial Aid available to help me achieve my Goals at the end.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

When I decided to begin my graduate program I thought about how much school would cost and would I be able to really dedicate myself to my program once my father passed away this year. I realized that this program was my coping process it helped me to stay focus and keep my eye on the prize and that if I want my master's I will do what it takes to be successful. Now that I am a year into my program I have realized that I have way more pros then cons because one I am more relaxed with my classes. I have learned to be better with my time management skills and also learning that life happens to all of us. Also, knowing that whenever I had questions my academic advisor was there to listen as well as her being active and checking to call and see how I am progressing with my classes. Enrolling in graduate school was not as bad as I thought it was and I am happy I decided to further my educational endeavors with Capella.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I love online learning because of the flexibility it affords. I also find that focusing on discussion questions outside of the classroom gives me time to think about them and effectively add to the conversation whereas in the classroom you have to think fast and are put on the spot for participation. I have had really great professors and each class is very diverse in students providing for many different perspectives and great discussions.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I really appreciate that I can take and apply what I've learned in a course and use it in everyday life. It appears a lot easier. I don't like that there are times when assignments are due in different courses at different times andits unclear but its workable. I really enjoy the enteraction I have wiht the instructors.

Im newly enrolled into the program as of 10/6/13. I haven't had a negative experience just positive ones. The enrollment counselor was very helpful and supportive in helping apply for the program.

Degree: Vocational
Graduation Year: 2016

I am very impressed with the online platform, the school's use of technology, the networking opportunities and the quality of the faculty. The only issue I have had so far is that the Financial Aid Office doesn't really seem to know what's going on and they are not very good at answering questions. Aside from that, the quality of education is excellent!
