I have not had an instructor that did not care about the students and are learning. They are all great! Everyone from the start, looking into possibly going to Capella, until now the final stretch has been wonderful and truly make me glad I chose Capella. I am an online student and unable to speak with anyone in person, but that has not hindered me in any way - I have return phone calls or e-mails within 24 hours regardless what department or what question I had. The real world examples from the instructors experience in the field of study increase the value of the learning over just text books. I highly recommend Capella for your studies. I am even thinking about returning for my PhD once I complete my Masters (only fieldwork left)!

Sorry this is the same as above, I can not say these things enough. I have not had an instructor that did not care about the students and are learning. They are all great!

I'm a sophomore at capella, and I love it so far. For being online, the faculty are very accommodating, especially me since they waive the age requirement if you have college credit, as I did because I transferred. And they take up to 130 transfer credits. The flexpath program makes getting a degree fit well into your life, and during coronavirus they're adding a lot of options. Theyre maintaining scholarship eligibility for students, freezing tuition, and even going to a pass/fail system instead of letter grades so gpa won't be affected. And it's affordable. Love it online!
