What is your overall opinion of this school?

Let me first note that as an online school, most of the factors which can be rated don't really apply to Capella. That said, for it's type, Capella is one of the best schools to attend. The application process is quite easy, enrollment counselors are great about following up with applicants throughout the admissions process and advisors continue the communication once you're enrolled in class. Professors are knowledgeable and available when additional contact is needed outside the classroom. I have recommended Capella to friends and family and will continue to do so.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the online schooling. I am able to work the classroom assignments and studies around my schedule. I do not miss sitting in a classroom and I feel that the online discussions that we have are much better than in a classroom. The instructor is always easy to contact and responds within 8 hours or less and if for some reason you are late on assignments they understand as "life happens". My colleagues for the most part are in their 40's or older and it is great being with people close to my age.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Capella University offers an online learning environment for working adults. I love that from the moment you are accepted into a Capella program, an advisor reaches out to you to make sure that you are aware of the resources available to you as a new learner. There is an orientation class you have to take prior to beginning a course but the course is designed to help become better aquainted with taking courses online. Your advisor follows you throughout the first year of your online learning to make sure you are staying on track with your program. They have been very helpful in getting me on track with my courses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Capella has taught me self discipline, patience, and tenacity. The instructors provide you honest and constructive feedback that allows you to work on important skills. Tutors help with everything from APA format to advice on how to master a competency. Their classes teach real world material that will actually be used in my career. I highly recommend Capella university!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Capella University is an online for profit organization. I find this institution appealing for the classroom format, the flexibility, and a academic focus. I received my masters through Capella and was completely satisfied with the program. As a full time employee, and mother of 2, Capella is the right choice for me.

Capella is a great school for online study its flexible and easy to engage me. I am an Sport Psychology major and found the discussions interesting and gives me a chance to actually learn something I want to use for my future. Peers are respectful and staff answers questions quickly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Capella University is an online school therefore a lot of the questions asked prior do not apply and therefore shouldn't count against them! I am a new PhD student at Capella and it is my first time taking online courses. I've heard a lot of horror stories about other online school but so far so good. The professors have been challenging and the academic advisors have been useful as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Capella University is extraordinary. Capella offers excellent, high-quality faculty and relevant, high level course contents. I had several public health class papers subsequently published in well-respected journals. Capella is an impressively credible and relevant option. Great support from the professors great communication. The knowledge has enhanced my career already. Flexible enough to keep me busy without being overwhelmed. School support was great from enrollment process through strategy for completion and library use. Capella instructors push the aspect of critical thinking, development of thinking, and utilization of present theories. The instructors have been engaging and pipe into the discussions, provide additional resources, pose challenging prompts and questions and thoroughly review our assignments in track changes. We get feedback on every discussion post. Everything we post must be supported by scholarly data or publication. The 3 things that make Capella great are 1) there are no annoying "off-the-cuff" speculative classroom discussions- discussions are well thought out and supported; 2) many of the students are working in the fields of the topics we explore and thus have much anecdotal information to contribute to the classroom; 3)having professors from a variety of top academic institutions enriches our learning experience and engages us in real world research. I am learning, growing, and implementing all of the invaluable information and I am looking forward to continue growing as a student, professional and lifelong learner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Capella University is unlike the previous two universities I've attended. For starters, all classes are online, and I have yet to find a class that doesn't require some level of engagement. If you're wanting an online degree that is easy, go somewhere else. If you want a degree that challenges you and gives you the education you are paying for, Capella is for you. Compared to previous universities I have attended, the program at Capella seems more focused on practical knowledge that can be used in the real world. I find every class to be intellectually enriching. Each week a student will typically be assigned to read a few chapters from various books and articles, complete discussions with other classmates, watch educational videos, and complete an assignment. Professors seem to care about the students and often offer assistance or pointers and even engage themselves in the weekly discussion posts. The only downside is the time required for each class, which makes it difficult to have a life outside of school. Despite the rigorous course-load, Capella offers plenty of help and guidance to those that seek it.
