The curriculum of courses are of good quality and interesting. Really relevant to career goals. Work load is sufficient. A bit expensive.

Degree: Psychology

You get out of it what you put into it. Additionally, I learned intensely at the colloquia and I recommend this school to all distance learners who are on their way to a doctorate in clinical psychology that meets the requirements for state licensure.

Capella offers a blended program of online and in person education that caters to learners that are unable to attend a brick and morter type setting. The classes academically challenge the students and the networking is fantastic.

I have not been a student with Capella university for long but so far everyone has been very helpful. I am pleased with the online layout and all of the assistance that is directly linked to your personal page, such as the library link and a proof reading guide. I am looking forward to enjoying my time at Capella and getting to know the school better.

The best thing about this program is the number of transfer credits accepted from my Master's degree; I will have my PhD in 2 short years! There aren't hardly any cons to this online program; I am very satisfied with the courtesy and support of the staff and instructors.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

It really is much easier to work than a traditional brick and mortar schoo. At the time I applied, it was the only online school I could find that was CACREP accredited for the Counseling program. They are constantly readjusting the program to make sure that we meet the CACREP requirements but are not overloading the students. There is not as much socializing and meeting new people that you keep as long term friends due to the distances and limited contact. This does change at the Colloquia where you actually meet people face to face and spend almost a week with them. The professor I had there was amazing and I am saddened that I do not live close enough to her to have interned under her. Her skills and approach were truly wonderful. I greatly appreciate their screening of students for their capability to be a counselor beyond just good academics.

Pros: Have a wonderful opportunity to meet students at track Colloquium. Prepares students for dissertation process. The interaction with constant research on multiple subjects. Cons: Inconsistency of faculty involvement when it comes to support for students. Learners should be able to request what their expectations are from the professor's.
