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.

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.

Online is challenging however Capella offers many resources for success particularly getting through a dissertation

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The overall grade is low because this university is online therefor several of the items such as transportation, surrounding areas, etc do not apply. The pros of the university's program is the ease of which the student can access courses on line. The platform and courses are rarely down (if at all). The instructors respond effectively to you emails when you have a problem. The cons of the graduate program is the length of time (10 weeks). I wish the courses were 12 weeks long. Also I wish that the courses were open to the students a week ahead of time (one week before the start of classes).

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this institution is that, although there are weekly assignments due, if you're good at time management you will fare very well. The teachers are passionate about their field and are very willing to assist a student where they can. The cons of the school would simply be the tuition raises every other quarter but I assume that's something happening across the board at every other institution.

My classes are all online so some responses are not applicable. Capella is slowly becoming a respected university. I feel the verdict is still out on it as an institution. I am impressed with the technology and am challenged by the masters program. It would be nice to see more funds go back to learners via scholarships.
