Capella's online format seems perfect for the fulltime teacher, however their lack of communication, response, and clarity regarding the number of classes needed to reach requirements for financial aid, semester/ billing start and end dates, and credits required versus credits attainable through coursework is beyond frustrating. Initially, I did not have any issues with their FlexPath program, but over time it has become one issue after another, with extensive hold times to speak to someone regarding... Read More

Capella University's FlexPath program allows me an incredible amount of freedom to study when and where I need. The customer service has been excellent: my Enrollment Counselor made sure that FlexPath would be the right fit, and she helped me plan out the program's courses to best match my needs. My FlexPath Coach keeps me on track and helps me manage my Academic Plan. She's been there for me through ups and downs. The Writing Center, Tech Support, Library services and Faculty respond within a very... Read More

I have TWO Masters degrees from Capella. Both of my Masters are in Education with specializations in Enrollment Management and Training and Performance Improvement. The classes are twice as hard as a traditional brick and mortar college and I was highly pleased with how much research is required and how much I learned from every single class. Expect to write about 10 pages or so per week (between class discussions/responses and assignments). You will end up writing almost a full thesis in each class.... Read More

So here is an honest assessment. First, the class with the professor wasn't bad, but they make you pay for a non-credit class to start. This is a bogus way of forcing you to pay more money at Capella. If you're admitted there is no reason to take an extra class. Second, I had an outside scholarship. They proceeded to hold that money long after it had already been sent to them, and long after my tuition had already been paid. This is where the main issue began. Even though I showed them that the money... Read More

This is an amazing school! It may be difficult for people who need constant interactions with professors, but for people who are self-motivated and able to teach themselves the course material, this is an excellent option that is fully accredited. Some of the professors create interactive videos and also live discussions that also help students feel more connected to the classroom and it also allows a chance to ask questions and receive feedback face to face. There are also residency training seminars... Read More

I earned a PhD from Capella in March 2007. This took 36 months to achieve with intense focus. Now I am back earning a second masters and similar to the first time at Capella, I have never had a problem with any aspect of the process from registration to graduation. I am here tonight writing because I never wrap my mind around why others have so many problems, issues, or concerns. I just do the work, enjoy the learning process and win. During the time it took me to earn my first degree I never had... Read More
