I have finished my coursework and comprehensive examination and am currently writing my dissertation. My sole purpose for obtaining a PhD is to be able to teach at a university at the professorial level (versus instructor) after a 20+ year career as a federal law enforcement officer. My agency offered to pay tuition for any personnel who could justify the need for advanced education; it provided a list of about 30 online schools to choose ... [Read more]

You will likely not become a Licensed Psychologist if you attend Capella
July 10, 2012
If you plan to devote several years and thousands of dollars toward obtaining a Doctoral Degree in Psychology, my advice is to attend an APA accredited program. I have few regrets in life but getting my PsyD from Capella was the worst decision I have ever made. It has nearly ruined my professional career. Even though I completed an APA approved internship, passed the EPPP, earned a doctoral degree, I cannot be licensed in the ... [Read more]

Capella not recognized for licensure
February 3, 2012
I hold a PhD in Psychology from Capella University (2006). It is nice to be called Doc, but the reality is that you cannot get licensure as a Psychologist anywhere in the US or its territories from this degree. If you have the appropriate practicums you can get a counseling license. Be sure you have 3 practicums, however, or you will be doing the entire Masters program over again even to get 1 necesary practicum. ... [Read more]

Brick & Mortar Snobbery??
May 15, 2013
I am always interested in the negative comments from people. Capella has tens of thousands of students. They are regionally accredited by the same organization that accredits Univ of Iowa, Michigan, Notre Dame, and many more. Their IT school is ABET certified, their nursing school is certified, etc.... I don't know if you complainers were ever told this, but, at the Masters and Doctoral level you are suppose to teach yourself. Professors are there to ... [Read more]

IF YOU ONLY READ ONE REVIEW READ THIS ONE!
April 26, 2011
Capella does not care out you as a student they only care about getting your money. If you are looking for a school to attend for psychology please go elsewhere. I have found out, and so have many of my classmates, that their degree is useless. I sought support from the advising staff at Capella today and was told this "our classes are not designed for licensure". Why else would some seek a masters degree ... [Read more]

Not a wise investment if you want to be a Professional or even gradute
April 20, 2012
First of all consider the cost, for this amount of tuition you want to learn something. The course material is very good. With that said you can complete the same work in an independent study format, the instructors are either complacent or bullies, no middle. Consider that some degrees require that you leave your job and/or family for 1 week at least 2 times for residency. The additional out of pocket expense is a challenge ... [Read more]

Falsely accusing and dropping students for Plagiarism.
May 13, 2012
I have went to Capella for a year and a half. I noticed in the beginning the called to see how I was doing all the time. But once I was in my second semester they did not even check up on me at all only to re enroll in there school for my next class. I have done my work the same way the whole way through. In this class I started I got ... [Read more]
