I think Capella is the best option for me because I get to take classes online and do my work from home. I worry I won't be able to keep up with writing assignments but it helps to have student support center.

The educational experience at Capella University online has been an exceptional experience thus far. All advisors have been very helpful and a majority of the professors have assisted a great deal in providing a challenging yet comfortable learning environment.

Coming from a traditional in class program transitioning online was difficult for me. I think the program can benefit from an approach that is more inclusive for first time learners.

The graduate progam is great at preparing students such as myself for future careel goals. Pros about the online program would have to be the flexibility of working at your own hours. Cons of the graduate degree program would be the limiting of personal contact with other people.

I feel like the pros of my Graduate program are the accessibility that I have to my Professors and the interactions that I have with each learner in the course rooms. Some cons about my program are the nervousness that if the internet is down my work could be late. Lisha Burks

Capella University has provided me a wonderful opportunity to pursue my PhD in spite of my busy schedule. As a single parent who works full time, I have always wanted to pursue my PhD; but lacked the time to attend traditional classes. Through the online format at Capella, I have the opportunity to complete a degree in the evenings when my children are in bed. I have been impressed with the academic rigor and the support that I have received from Capella. I would recommend them to anyone who is serious about completing a degree.

Capella University is very concerned with their credibility and worked very hard to have academic programs that meet accreditation requirements. The instructors are creative and continually provide pertinent feedback to the students. The instructors genuinely aspire to see their student accomplish their dreams. Capella provides numerous tutoring devices, academic advisors, and support staff to guide learners throughout their arduous journey of working, raising a family and attending school. Many students divulge that Capella has been a life changing experience for them. This student life has been augmented by sharing her life experiences in posts, realizing that others appreciate her perspectives and creativity, and see her as a leader in her classes. Hence, Capella provides learners with the belief that good thing will come to those who are patient and persevere.
