Degree: Healthcare Administration

I love the learning format at Capella! It allows me to manage my busy schedule AND work to achieve my academic goals! I work as a college educator at another university… when it came to taking the next steps for my personal education… I CHOSE CAPELLA! At Capella, I have earned my Bachelors, Masters and am currently working on my Doctorate degree!!

When I began taking courses at Capella University. It was very good in the beginning. So my experience was good at that time. So, things began to turn for the worst out of the clear and started going downhill. About 2 and half years went by I started getting these teachers, first, it was a male teacher stating that I plagiarized my answer to a question in class, I thought that was very strange. He summons everyone to come to the classroom at a certain time to talk about certain students plagiarizing.... Read More

I definitely do not recommend this school to anyone who truly wants to graduate. I wasted more than 80,000$ dollars here and have no degree. You will be passed through your classes without issue. However, getting the intensive help needed to complete your dissertation will not be there. Find a university close to home so that you can receive one on one assistance if needed. Do not waste your money here. Its truly heartbreaking.

This is the worst school on the surface of the planet. All they aim for is get you to cough out your money and once that get the money, they become your Lord. Whatever they tell you you have no recourse. They have no structure to see or track customer service. Their after class survey is a sham. This is a school that has no structure for people to assist you. Horrible customer service over and over again. No one should attend this school. Total waste of money & Time.

I think that Capella University is an excellent university. The program that I am currently in has help be learn a great about what is expected of me in my future career. The only thing that I would suggest is a way to help students get jobs associated with their education.

Capella offers a great program and offers blended learning through research, interacting in groups and in the classroom with other students. This structure challenges your thinking and knowledge and opens up a whole new world of deep and analytical thinking. It also allows students the flexibility needed, particularly for those who work and are also earning their degree.

Not every online University is incompetent; certainly, I know that Capella is very competent. It is also worth noting that an online university is not for everyone. For one thing, one has to be effective with using technology, secondly, one has to be time conscious and discipline, third, one has to be a fast learner. These are important criteria needed to succeed in an online environment. I will admit that every university has its pros and cons. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. There have been times... Read More

I am proud of my accomplishment of completing a Doctorate degree. It has been a year since completion and I still do not have a job. I reached out to career services but they do not assist with actual job placement which would be an enhancement of the Capella experience.

The three and half years I studied at Capella University were some of the most informative years in my academic career. I was already an established and busy surgeon in my country, but I felt I needed that extra challenge to add a PhD to my medical qualifications. It was not easy spending those nights working on the weekly course assignments, but it was all worth the effort. I fully enjoyed the structured online course work offered at Capella. Since, graduation I have published not less than six... Read More

I started the DHA program with Capella in the Summer 2012. Everything was going great. The only gripe I had at the time was not getting information about the dissertation and no advice for getting ready for the dissertation. The program started out with 39 students and dwindled down to 4 when we got to the dissertation. Throughout the first three years, I was told by my advisor that the entire program would only be 4 to 4.5 years to complete from start to finish. I went into the dissertation and... Read More

For anyone reviewing the negative comments- please note the grammar, language, emotion, and content of those negative posts. I have seen a multitude of students disappear from the program and in my opinion it was the correct decision. I have read numerous posts where the student did not last through one course. It takes time to get used to an on-line program and it is challenging to work in a virtual environment. I am entering the dissertation phase of my degree and I think that those that have made...

I do believe this university is only about and after money. I wish I had never attended this school. I have two graduate degrees from another university and I personally would not recommend this school to anyone. I wish someone had warned me prior to attending.

I really don;t know where to begin. I completed my Masters from Capella and had a really positive experience. I enrolled in the DHA program after being told the entire program take four to four in a half years to complete. Initially the program had over thirty students. When it came time to complete the dissertation there was seven of us left. During the meeting to discuss our dissertation and have questions answered, we were told it was going to be anywhere from an additional two years to four years... Read More

I began the program in the Spring of 2005. I completed my coursework in less than two years. Overall my experience was positive, however I had issues with members of my dissertation committee which in my opinion were due to a lack of leadership from them.

Not for me. This school was just okay. I thought that the canned curriculum was not rigorous or motivating. The standardization of the discussions encouraged me to only post once to other learners when I wanted to post more. There is a standard of 250 words per discussion and I feel that this is inadequate for a comprehensive understanding of the topic from a doctoral standpoint. I generally wrote the minimum because it answered the question and that is what I needed to do to get the grade. My classmates... Read More

I completed my Masters with Capella and finished my first year of my PhD program and very pleased with the school. If you apply yourself and read the APA Manual, you will be fine.
