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.

Since starting Capella in 2012 I have had an awesome experience, while others have noted many issues. The diversity of student is awesome but I have to say that the diversity of the professors is not consistent with the students. I attend Capella online so I have never visited their campus, had no safety concerns or used the party scene, local area or eaten the campus food. However, being a student at Capella has allowed me a great student life, traveling and having no limits, as the learning is awesomely online! I also have received a good return on my investments, being promoted shortly after achieving my master's degree....currently moved on to the PhD program in Psychology because I was so happy with the results!
I would choose my school all over again if I had the choice. The Professors work with you and they are so intelligent. The lessons involve a lot of reading, but anything that will teach you something is worth the read! They work with the student if they need extra time. The classmates in every single class that I have had for the past 5 years were all friendly and very helpful towards each other. Discussions are part of your grade so I recommend that all students finish all of their discussions along with the assignments.

Attending Capella University has been a life changing experience for me. I am a senior citizen who has always wanted to go to College and graduate with a BS Degree. I have nothing but great and wonderful things to say about Capella University and everyone in each department from the Admissions Dept to the Academic or Financing Dept...every single person has been very professional as well as very helpful!
