Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a good school academically. Yet, the toughest part is the fieldwork portion. It has been very difficult to secure a placement on my own.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Capella's online graduate program allows the learner to work full-time and still work on furthering their education and complete a Master's Degree. This program also provides opportunity for the learner seeking a Counseling degree to obtain hand-on skills through a required residency course. The faculty are helpful, knowledgeable and informative about the subjects they teach.

Degree: Vocational
Graduation Year: 2016

The courses are aligned very well with what you need to be successful in this field (training & performance improvement). Between the quality of the courses and the flexibility of the program, it's a great choice - especially if you already have professional experience in the field.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Attending Capella has change my life and the way education is available on-line. Capella has afforded me the chance to make new friends from all over the world. The world learning on-line is great but one must be disciplined. Therefore; being an online student I learned patience, accountability, responsibility and espically time managment. I will be the first in my family to have achieved DPA. I am super super proud of myself!

Degree: Criminal Justice

The pro is the fact that the program is completely online. The con is the fact that I will have to travel to Minnesota from California to participate in graduation exercises.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate school program include flexibility with my schedule as a full time employee and mother, the wonderful resources available to answer any question that I may have and the ability to view tutorials regarding course room discussions. The cons are turn around time for professor responses and sometimes wanting the social one on one interaction with advisors, students and professors.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros to online studying is that I am still able to have a work balance with kids, school and work. Somretimes it is diffidult than others, but Capella will provide the student with all assignments due for the class so that students can prepare for vacations. Capella University online professor are very understanding of unforseen incidents that may occur with family, which is very important to me because I have twin sons. My overall experence has been great with Capella University Online. I have only had a few encounters that I wish I could change. The cons to receiving my PhD online is continuing to prove myself in knowledge and expertise. Lastly, in the PhD program the student is required to attend colloquia (residencies) and they are not covered by financial aid, so I had to get a separate loan my colloquias.
