I like Capella University. I am a person who has had a hard time liking school. It was a very positive experience when I started school, and I enjoyed it. They have so many helpful resources that you can use along the way for your courses. They give you the option to merge your bachelor's and master's courses.
Make sure you talk with your academic advisor and financial aid to make sure you are taking the right amount of credits and don't go over to end up having to owe them.
I love the amount of options Capella has for studies in Psychology and other social sciences. I have learned so much and I treasure my experience with Capella University. I look forward to all the knowledge I have the opportunity to gain as I move toward graduation.
The academic plan offered gives you options to take courses on Sophia Learning. I did not understand why my financial aid did not cover these offered courses within Capella's academic plan options. I took the Sophia Learning courses to keep up my credits when I needed a break from scheduled courses because Sophia allows you to work at your own pace. I understood upon enrollment that Sophia was a sister school whose pricing consisted of per course and Capella's consisted of cost per credit. Somehow I ended up having unpaid tuition for taking those courses to make up my credits while I had scheduled a semester of inactivity from the Guided Path curriculum. With this confusion about the academic plan offerings, along with events occurring due to covid, I ended up needing to take a mental health break and reluctantly withdrew from an internship in the Honors Pathway program. This financial aid that paid for that particular Fall semester has to be repaid and I am not currently in a position to do that. This has set me back in my academic career and caused me to fall behind in my success as an honor student at Capella. Taking time for self-care seems to have ended up costing more and causing even more stress. My suggestion is that any student looking to go to Capella or any college, be vigilant with time management and do not take more classes than your financial aid covers if that is how you are temporarily financing college.
It is easy and simple to navigate their course rooms.
Sometimes you can't access provided links or information.
This school takes your needs into consideration and they work with you very well.
Not much they are awesome.
I admire the academic culture at Capella which is student focus driven, great access to a wealth of student coaching and support services. Its online programs offer flexibility.
Tuition I think is high.
I think it is a great opportunity for work parents to go back to school on their own time.
It is a bit pricey to go. Over 300 per credit.
