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.

Degree: Counseling

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!

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I have really enjoyed my classes and graduate program so far. The staff is really supportive and the classes are challenging. The online format used really helps you to learn and work to work with others.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

It was always my dream to obtain a degree in Mental Health Counseling. However since I have young children in my home, I was having a hard time attending a brick and mortar school. Capella University has been the perfect solution. I can work on my degree while still staying home with my babies, and I feel the education is equal to that of a traditional school. I am in my fourth class, and I love the format of the discussions, my professors are always available, and the material is challenging. The only down side is that it is a bit more expensive than a traditional school, but for not having to get a babysitter, pay for gas, and all the other benefits of staying home, i am so pleased.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I really enjoy attending the graduate program at Capella university online, however I can only take one course at a time due to the requirements and workload for the courses. I can not keep up with a demanding full time job, the readings and coursework required. It will take me longer to complete my degree.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

This program can be difficult because it's an online program. There is the need for interaction face to face more regularly than the three (3) residencies. This school can gain more if there were brick and mortar schools located in central area of the country where students can have the option to visit when they need help especially at the dissertation phase. There is no replacement for face to face contact.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros that I currently see is the structure of the program, the 24/7 access and the ability to network across the country. The only con that I would see is the just the lack of residency locations.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the online community it is very diverse and easily accessible. The workload is always reasonable and scheduling is flexible which is great. Most of the professors are great, easy to get in contact with, present in the course room and knowledgeable. I feel much more comfortable and productive with online learning overall.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

Online learning provided a way for me to continue my education and still work full-time. My professors worked with me when my professional life conflicted with my student life. The cons were colloquia is mandatory but not covered by financial aid. Books are not covered in tuition like some online programs.
