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!
Review Capella University
From the moment I inquired about the programs offered at Capella to after my acceptance to the University, all of my questions have been answered in a very timely many (response to e-mails during weekdays within 1-3 days, over the phone inquiries within 30 minutes to greet, acknowledge and respond). I've been able to navigate the University's online campus with ease and find what I needed. Thanks Capella!
I have had a wonderful experience at Capella University. I am an undergraduate in my junior year of achieving my B.S. in Psychology. The mentors and faculty at Capella have been very supportive. When students need clarification on assignments the instructors will be readily available to assist them. The staff at Capella also makes us as students feel optimistic about our future after graduation. They give us resources on career aspects and offer career advice. I have an academic planner and advisor that calls me and asks if I'm doing ok. That goes beyond what is expected and it shows that Capella's goals are to assure their students that they will achieve their own goals. I'm so happy I chose to be a student at Capella. The online classes give me the opportunity to continue being a successful employee, mother, and wife. I would recommend Capella University to anyone looking to further their education.
