I signed up with Capella at the beginning of 2020 for one class just as I lost my job to Covid. Got ahold of the advisor and she said I would be able to drop the class with no strings attached because of the change in circumstance and since I didn't actually do anything in the class yet. Took a bit to get in touch with the person who can cancel classes, but he said he didn't know how finances worked and that if she said it it was probably true. A couple of months later I get a bill for $1600. I send... Read More

This is the worst experience I have ever had. I hated Capella. I was dropped from courses, made to reenroll, talked to horribly. It’s pretty obvious that the university is trying to intentionally prolong your time so that you pay more, but the staff is utterly disgusting. I regret ever signing up, and if it weren’t for my own motivation I would quit school overall. Capella is a vile, awful, university. It feels like an insult to actual school to even call it q place or something education.

The issue is the financial department. I completed the FASA application and completed 1 course. However, I was dropped during my 2nd course as a result of bill due. I had made multiple attempts to find out the issue from the FD. The FD never returned my calls or emails. Now, I am being told that I still owe over $2600 in tuition. What a mistake this was.

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 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... Read More

I applied to Capella right before the pandemic and shut downs, my first class started in that April. My organization I worked for was greatly impacted by the pandemic and I received news I had to move me and my child to another state to keep my job at another facility. Capella was so unsupportive. I was trying to get out of a lease, organize a move and everything was shut down, in addition to leaving family behind. I was fighting back so much emotion explaining all this to my counselor and he said... Read More

Capella University refuses to help struggling students by denying options for aid. I lost my job due to COVID, therefore, I lost tuition assistance from my employer. Capella University sends out communication that says they are helping students by suspending billing. I applied for Financial aid from Department of Education and was awaiting my award. Capella dropped me from classes in November because of $2k past due balance (but billing suspended). In December my financial aid was approved. Capella... Read More

I don't understand the complaints from all these reviews. I entered the FlexPath program for my bachelors with my AA from a local state college. In only 5 months I completed my degree. If you have no real work experience in your field of study you may struggle...if you are not motivated to work quickly and complete assignments you will struggle....if you are unable to write papers and complete lengthy research assignments at times, you are not in the right program. I absolutely loved my experience,... Read More

Worst school to deal with. I started school here and had to figure everything out on my own. After a semester, my wife lost her job and we moved states. I didn't attend for a year. When we settled, i started back up, but was forced to reenroll. I was then told that since I was still paying off my tuition from prior semester, I cant register for classes until late September (wasting whole summer semester). Due to timing, i enrolled at a different college to be able to continue with school faster.... Read More

The whole process is completely streamlined. From beginning to end, all expectations, requirements, and tools needed to complete course are provided. The FlexPath learning platform requires you to have a very motivated and overachieving approach to the completion of course assessments to make the best use of it. I came in with partial credit transfers (not all credits were able to be transferred from applicability of degree program) from a previous Associate's degree, and was able to finish the course...

It took me 6 year to complete my B.S Business Administration. My whole Capella experience was amazing. I can only speak of my own experience however the class rooms, staff, administrators, class mates were amazing. It took me 6 years because I worked long hours but committed almost every night to complete my degree. I made a commitment to complete my degree not make excuses why the school, professors, etc were to blame for my failures. I earned my degree, period. Finally, I am so proud to be a Capella...

Outstanding experience! I completed the flex path program at Capella achieving a bachelors in business administration. If you are accountable and motivated to further advance your academic studies this is the right choice for you. There is no hand holding - you are responsible for completing the coursework and following the academic policies. However, if you do find yourself in need of advice my "coach" aka adviser was more than helpful with any issue. With my degree in hand, many doors have been... Read More

Excellent school. Excellent! FlexPath is the bomb way to get your degree and still manage life!!! The flexibility that it gives makes getting your degree more manageable. I would recommend this school to my family and friends! Capella University is all right with me!

If you are smart and determined ignore these crazy reviewers. I am in the flexpath program and am leaving a review because it seems most of the reviewers here either were pathetic in there attempts at higher education or simply lying. My fafsa pays for 2/3 of the cost. I started last February with less than 20 credits and will be done by this summer with 160 credits. Flexpath allows you to take 2 courses at a time although I'm usually only in one. I use the second slot as an option from time to time.... Read More

Capella University is simply amazing! When I first began this journey in January 2017 I had no idea what I would experience. Being in a professional senior level management job means I have a lot of pressure during my daily activities and I had no idea how I would balance my family, career and college all while my wife was completing a doctorate. Yet, with the great addition of the Sophia courses I was able to get in and jump right into the degree program. Once I had completed just about all of the... Read More

Capella University Guided path was just what I needed. I was 45 years of age when I decided to go back and get a degree and with a busy full time job and full time parenting, I was a little worried on how I could get a degree during everything else. The school advisors walked me through the first year of how to set up courses and determined what was best for me to teach me how to plan out my future success. It was a huge help. With Capella's writing assessments, it meant I didn't have to sit and... Read More

I was enrolled in the FlexPath Program at Capella and it was the best decision I have ever made in my life. This program allows you to have almost all the control over the pace you complete the courses. During my time at Capella, I have learned a plethora of information that will help me become successful in the business world. If you are considering attending Capella, I strongly suggest you do.

Needed to finish my undergrad and wouldnt have been admitted to traditional programs due to poor academics from the inital college experience. Employer also offered discounts for Capella so applied and was accepted. For those that are in the same situation and need a BA/BS, schools like Capella are the only viable option even if they arent seen as real schools. Courses are what you make of them. For someone who enjoys writing, they were very easy. Not sure if it was just my instructors but grading... Read More

Every representative in every department is unhelpful, and some are actually extremely combative and rude. They completely lied about my transfer credit evaluation, stating that I could complete the degree in a year because of my previous coursework. As it turned out, it would have taken me over 2 years. They automatically enroll you in courses that you do not choose, and then refuse to withdraw you from them when you request it. Then they charge you for the courses. You get zero help with your courses.... Read More
