I love Capella University! The faculty and instructors are all very kind and helpful. They really genuinely want you to succeed in your coursework and do plenty of things to help you a long the way. Capella has plenty of resources that can help with Time Management, APA Citation, etc. etc. If you're worried about how to afford going to college, they also have plenty of creative ideas and helpful information on financing your education. Although it has other programs, Psychology, Social Work & Human Services seem to be it's niche. I consider this the best online school and I'm proud to say that I am a student.

Excellent communication with advisors, financial aide counselors, enrollment, etc. They reach out and are available to answer any questions at any time! My academic advisor calls promptly when I have a scheduled appointment and listens to what I want from my college experience. The orientation course to become familiar with the online course room and Capella was incredibly helpful! Instructors and teachers aide are available whenever I need assistance with a course.
I am attending Capella University's online MBA Program and must say I am very impressed with their curriculum. I was a bit skeptical at first being that the program is online, but I feel appropriately challenged and can discuss questions with appointed tutors and faculty if needed, which is great. I checked into their accreditations ahead of time and everything checks out. I'm happy to attend there, and am looking forward to receiving my degree!
