Overall, their PhD program changed so many times, that the students have to revise and never reach the point when they can begin writing their dissertation.

I love Capella overall, and my current situation is my fault, however I wish they would assist more with financial aid, grants, etc. I am struggling to complete my program, due to funding limitations, therefore I am searching for grants and scholarships. A pro of the program is the colloquias that students have to attend. This allows learners to put a face with a name, and build relationships.

Capella University is a great school. Faculty challenge students and are very helpful to students. I was able to fall into learning again after being out of school for several years. I made great connections with other students and faculty.

Graduation Year: 2013

Capella provides little in the way of career support, probably because practically all students are adults who are already working in their fields, the vast majority of whom have returned to school after considerable hiatus. Capella and the value of its programs are, to the best of my knowledge and belief, poorly-understood by most employers. The doctoral colloquia are outstanding experiences, and the adminstration is committed to adaptation and continual improvement throughout.
