They intentionally, for some reason, pretended to enroll me in the fall, and forwarded my financial aid to be approved, but to start in Jan., of 2019. I was told then on 10.01.18 that my FA would not cover the fall, but not to drop the class. However, there was no guarantee that I would be repackaged, and that if it was not approved for the fall, but I would owe them money. They postponed everything for 48 hours, thus overlapping the add/drop period. I was told on 10.18 that I would have to drop... Read More

I started in 2016, and was told that if I enrolled in Flexpath, taking more than one course at a time, that I would have enough monies to finish the program. Last year, 2017, I was told that financial aid made a mistake. Okay, I accepted that. Then for the entire quarter that I just finished, my financial aid dashboard showed another scholarship plus $12,000, and I was told by financial aid that they would split my remaining monies into 2 quarters, not 4. The very next day, that the quarter ended,... Read More

I am in my 2nd class and already see that there are people in my class that shouldn't be. Their writing is so atrocious, that I can barely get through their posts so that I can reply to further the discussion. These students are supposed to be my peers, and they can barely write, which waters down, way down, my degree. I am very disappointed.

Capella University has been a wonderful catalyst for lifelong learning. I attended a wonderful public land-grant University for undergrad in my early twenties. It helped develop soft skills required for success in my career. Now that I'm in my early thirties, brick and mortar is not practical. I had to find an online institution that was well received in my field, regionally and nationally accredited, good value for money, and allowed for flexibility in scheduling (military). Capella fit all criteria... Read More

I love Capella University. I am 1/3 towards my doctorate and so far I have had a wonderful experience. I went to an Ivy league undergraduate college for my bachelors of science. Capella is more rigorous than was the graduate program for earning my master of science degree at TAMU. Many of the professors are also professors at other top universities, such UCLA and are experts in their fields. I have made many professional connections and am not limited to those at a brick and mortar college. My classmates... Read More
