Capella University Reviews
Capella University is a great online school that goes above and beyond to meet student needs. They understand that in today's economic state, education is important, but also that it is not easy to access when one is working part, or full-time, which is what makes their online learning format so great. Staff in every department are friendly, answer questions, and are sure to guide you through every step of the process, whether it is applying, registering for classes, courses, or even graduation! I have been enrolled since July in 2019 to finish my Bachelors of Science in Psychology, and have felt very fortunate for the support, and guidance they have provided thus far.
I love Capella. Everyone is so understanding and flexible. When I went to my 1st residency in January of this past year, it gave me a whole new love for Capella. I made some really amazing friends while at my residency that we still keep in touch today. I also learned so much and had such a positive feedback and experience. I would recommend Capella to anyone who has a busy life but wants to get a degree. It’s worth it!
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!
