Capella University changed my life! The Graduate Education received at Capella University allowed me to qualify for State License to practice in California. I have also secured teaching positions with Community Colleges, and Accredited Universities. In addition, I APA Post-Doctoral Training have recognized Capella University's superior curriculum. Other friends that graduated with me are Practicing Psychology in Private Practice in the following states: Washington, California, and Arizona. Salary increased was present prior to graduation, but it is up to the individual to make the degree work them. Good luck to all of you pursuing ed to a higher level.

Earned my PhD in Educational Psychology in 2008. Quickly was hired as an associate professor for a state university. If you are worried about earning an online degree from Capella- don't! I was hired out of a pool of 215 applicants with doctoral degrees. It isn't an easy school, but your degree is worth something when you are done.

I have found the materials and books required for the courses to be well worth the money. The scholarly articles are generally an asset to the readings. Professors tend to respond to questions in a timely manner. The cost of attending Capella is equivalent to attending a traditional state or private college in Ohio. Capella provides many tools for student success (e.g., the Assignment Calculator for writing research papers, Smarthinking for paper reviews and constructive feedback, etc.). The only complaint I have, is that sometimes the site is difficult to navigate; however, the tools are available to any students with a mindset for completing their PhD with success.

This has been a very rigorous and demanding journey but I have learned so much both academically as well as personally. The online environment was extremely interactive and engaging. I felt compelled to keep pushing myself to learn more and I feel that I am a much more well rounded person than I was before I took any courses with Capella.

I graduated from Capella University in June 2003 with my Master of Science degree in Educational Psychology. Overall, my experience with Capella was outstanding! I do not understand the negative reviews of this school. This school was perfect in every regard. Additionally, I have reaped the rewards of my Master's degree. I have since secured a professorship at a local community college in Tennessee and my degree has been respected by my colleagues and administrators. Capella was truly a rewarding and worthwhile academic experience. I highly recommend this school to anyone considering it. I am now pursuing my PhD at another online school (Northcentral University) and it too has been a wonderful experience thus far. The reason why I chose to attend NCU is because of the non-residential component. I wish that Capella's PhD residency requirement was not so stringent. Nevertheless, I would still recommend Capella's degree programs to anyone.
