I just currently started at Capella and so far, I am enjoying the experience. The discussion boards and interacting with peer is fantastic. The fact that interacting on the boards is including in your grade gives others students the motivation to respond and build a solid support network. The daily schedule I maintain keep me accountable and I feel Capella really works with students that also try to maintain a full time job. Great job Capella!

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.
Great online classes. Instructor support is awesome! Online format is easy to follow. Support for new learners is readily available. Instructors explain course work in clear-to-understand words. Assignments are graded and returned in a timely manner. Fellow learners/peers support each other as we work through new concepts. Online gives me the flexibility to work on my doctorate when I have the time.
