Degree: Business

Capella is disorganized. You can never get help from anyone. When you reach out they are rude. They don’t actually seek to help, they just try to pass the buck and make you jump through hoops to accommodate their overall incompetence as a university. The professors don’t care about students, and the staff is incredibly unkind to learners. If you have a major, time sensitive issue, they will fully allow you to be dropped from classes due to an “admin error” on their part, and then take their sweet... Read More

The FlexPath program is perfect for my schedule as I work full time and prefer to learn online rather than physically in a classroom. The only complaint I have is the communication with financial aid and counselors. My personal counselor was always either "on vacation" or never responded to my emails. If I needed anything I would have to call Capella University and they would transfer me to another counselor to help me, usually having to wait on hold for long periods of time while being transferred...

I have been enrolled at Capella University with the FlexPath program for almost one year now. I am pursuing a B.S. Degree in Business focusing on Management and Leadership. I do not understand the bad reviews. It is not the responsibility of the school to keep up with how much a student has in financial aid. It's the responsibility of the student to make sure the finances are there and to keep track of how much the student may need to pay out of pocket. They have chat available and a phone number...

My experience with attending Capella University was great. The classes were very helpful and tought me new things about business, business managment, and leadership. My business managment studies also gave me educational knowledge of life experiences in the workforce about the different departments and how they operate. The final task of earning my bachelor degree entailed doing a GLO-BUS project. The projected was based off of information already setup by the a third-party website where students... Read More

I was skeptical of Capella because of the old saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is". I had early access before class started on April 8th and completed 2 assessments for one of my classes. Once I received feedback and saw how well I was progressing I picked up another class. Less than a week in and I've finished the first class and I'm 1 assessment away from finishing the second. FlexPath is IDEAL for me. I work full time, have two children, a husband, and a very busy life. I am able... Read More

From attending a community college in Los Angeles to attending another college online, Capella accepted most of my credits I earned through an Associates Degree. Before enrolling, I was given information about their guided program and flexpath program. They were honest from the beginning and I decided to enroll in their flexpath program which was life changing for me because it was extremely flexible and cost effective. Initially, I had to take two guided courses and pass them which was explained... Read More

Before enrolling at Capella University, my vision was frosted. I did not know where to start or how to start but I started. Capella helped with everything from financial assistance to advising. Since then, I own 2 companies, one of which is a consulting firm, Ezra Blaze Consulting Firm, LLC North Charleston, South Carolina, and Entebbe, Uganda and GonZaga International Company, Ltd., Headquartered in Entebbe, Uganda. In addition, I started my studies in Spring 2011 and graduated Fall 2018, I do not... Read More

I was enrolled in the flex path program from 2016-2018, I had very little guidance. Also, whenever I reached out to the staff members I was met with condescending attitudes. As though I was a bother, I believe because I am a working professional the instructors assumed that I should know the material. Which was an insane notion. Honestly, what got me through the program was self motivation. This is not a program for students of diversity, which is the population the program is geared towards.

Great education for working professional

I really liked my experience with Capella. It was a nice compromise between independent learning and traditional education. The professors were knowledgeable in their fields, and offered great guidance. After three years, I had very few negative interactions. I also found that when students were unnecessarily unpleasant, they seemed to have been weeded out, which is great. The basic format of the school is that a professional tells you what to learn, you learn it, and you write a paper showing that... Read More

My experience has been amazing from the very beginning. My Enrollment Counselor, S.S., was beyond helpful and amazing to work with. My Academic Advisor, M.G. is very helpful and always answers any question I manage to come up with. The instructors are always trying to be as helpful as possible to help you succeed and pass the course. The BS/MBA combined degree option is not available for FlexPath. So if you are in FlexPath you will have to go to GuidedPath to complete the last few courses that are... Read More

I would NOT recommend this school to ANYONE. I withdrew from classes and they still charged me. They have me a ton of problems with financial aid, problems that I never had with my other university. They will not release my transcripts making it IMPOSSIBLE for me to get into a program elsewhere. Absolutely would not attend here and would not recommend anyone else to. Find a school that actually cares about their students instead of the money.

Capella University is a joke! Their Flex Path program is a huge waste of money. I tried to withdraw and they ignored me and still charged me for classes. I would not recommend this school to anyone! They say I owe them money and will not release my transcripts. BAD BAD SCHOOL DO NOT GO TO CAPELLA UNIVERSITY!!!

As a matter of fact, I have received my Bachelor of Science in Business with an emphasis in Finance program at Capella University. Capella University is one path that leads to many destinations. Capella coursework has helped me to understand the mechanics of leadership, become more resourceful, creative, and solution-oriented person for my family; and my community. On the balance, so much has changed in the second half of my life.

I feel anyone should re-think taking the Flex Path Program. I work full-time Project Manager and had completed all 3 my assessments and the last one I was in progress and I had gotten really ill was unable to submit by the deadline date. So, therefore, they withdraw me from the school. I felt all this was unfair. I had turned in all my assignments with a Proficient score.

Being a parent and a full time employee, Capella made going to school manageable. The courses added to my skill set which make me marketable and competitive. What I have walked away with is an understanding that even in the midst of what life brings, I am capable.

I started at Capella in July of 2011, transferred from Devry - BEST decision I made during my college career. Mid-January of 2016 I started in the FlexPath Program - OUTSTANDING!! I finished 6 courses in 10 months!! FlexPath is the perfect way to get your degree if you have a busy personal and work schedule. I was able to move my assessment dates up or back depending on what was happening in my life. It really fit MY schedule. No discussions, no deadlines. I worked at my own pace and loved it!! The...

Having just completed numerous courses with Capella, I can honestly say the courses and instructors fully prepared me for the advancement of my career with real world assessments and projects. In addition, I was fully supported by coaches and instructors to succeed. I have been a regular student on a regular campus, an online student and a Flexpath student and had found all avenues to be equally challenging and rewarding. I cannot emphasize the strong support and ease with which to navigate the site... Read More

I am a current learner at Capella University and I felt compelled to write a review after reading the negative comments. Although everyone's experience is different, some good and others bad, it really depends on the dedication and consistency of the student. In my experience I had medical complications and had to leave the school. When attempting to return two academic advisors guided me through every step until I was re-enrolled. They even took extra time to email and call me just to see how things... Read More

Do not go here. They are uninformative and all about making a dollar, your education is not a concern of the teachers or staff. I went here for two years and thought when I understood the process it would get better, but it only gets worst. This school will not last much longer due to their un-useful staff. The students are not very educated or ready for the work world after graduation. This is my personal experience, which is identical to many others I know that attended this school.
