Capella University Reviews
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.
I just started attending Capella but I already Iove the University. The academic advisors are so informative, the professors are good with communicating with the students and its so much to discover on the website. I recommend Capella to anyone!
