I liked the flexpath Capella offered. It was great because I could spend my time focusing on my studies. However, online, there was a lot of miscommunication. Most of my instructors were great. They were approachable and understanding. I had a few who... Read More really worked with me and I appreciated that. There was one really bad instructor who was biased and that was challenging. The other challenge was that I had three different academic advisors and the last one was the worst. The library staff was amazing and very helpful when doing my research. The writing tutors were hit or miss. But over all what I paid in tuition and what I got for a degree was well worth the cost.
I chose Capella based of the recommendations of two friends, one who had received their Masters from Capella & another friend who was currently in the Masters program. First of all, online course work doesn’t mean easy! You have to put in the time & effort... Read More to achieve ANYTHING in life. I chose the FlexPath program because of the flexibility; I’m a single mother & work full time. Even though the program is flexible, there are still deadlines that must be met. You must submit an assignment every week or will you receive an email asking if you need assistance with the assignment and/or what preparations have you done toward the assignment. Capella is all about accountability & helping you succeed! All of my instructors had advanced degrees and was very knowledgeable in the subject they taught. Per Capella’s rules, all instructors must grade assignments within 48 hours of submission! I only had one instructor who was late grading my assignments! Along with instructors, each FlexPath course had a tutor, who also had an advanced degree! I had a family emergency & had to leave school for a period of time. Capella was understanding & when I returned, it was just like I never left!! Even during the midst of COVID & the George Floyd situation in the city, Capella staff continue to check on the well being of their students! I graduated June 2020 with a 3.67 GPA (calculated by academic advisor), all while working 45-50/hrs a week! I’m proud to stay I went to Capella & HIGHLY recommend the school to anyone looking for a meaningful education experience!!!
Loved my experience so far. I have had great professors and resources available. I am able to work on my Master’s while still working as a non-traditional student through their flex-path program. I researched online universities for a long time prior... Read More to choosing Capella and am glad that I did!
