Capella University

Capella University
Program: Public Safety and Criminal Justice PHD
Posted on June 5, 2013 by CT

Capella is dreadful. They fail to tell you that your tuition doubles after the first semester, their colloquia is 1500 each (3 are required) and are not covered by financial aide (unless you pay 4765 dollars for 3 credit hours)and that each colloquia takes ten weeks. They also fail to tell you that they want to draw you out as long as possible for the dissertation simply to extend your financial aide as long as possible.
The coursework is "ok". You don't have to pay for textbooks and all the information you need is right there; however, much of the coursework is repetitive and unnecessary. It's not as bad if you have professors who care but the majority do not.
If you choose this school (and it's not a good choice) be prepared to spend 3-4 hrs on the phone with financial aide and academic advising each time you call them. They have no options to help you other than loans and are either by rules from the school or grossly incompetent.
I am skeptical of the employment options with this school as well since they take anyone who can get a loan many employers will overlook this school. Also, any licensure course you should take in person because it is not applicable to getting a license.
My advice is to keep looking and if you decide to choose Capella don't expect a school that has the ability or concern to help its students do anything except pay. They are a mediocre, expensive headache with delusions of grandeur...
