BEWARE - Stay away from this school!

The school lies about the quality of the program, the commitment of staff to quality education, the length and cost of the program, and the staff's commitment to the student. My program is now twice the length it was advertised to be, it is twice the cost, and the faculty are not present in online classes nor do they provide critical and substantive feedback. They do not even provide a mentor for the PHD candidate until the comps phase, contrary to other online PHD programs - which is way too late to derive any kind of true comprehension of the dissertation process. The student is left in limbo…which lengthens the process = more money and time wasted.

The faculty are free to harass students with impunity.

No other schools - even ones accredited by the same agency - will accept transfer credits from Capella University.

The previous Dean of Psychology is advertised as a PHD (still), even though he is a PsyD - or maybe not even that…he is supposedly no longer the Dean…but, we were never told.

The PHD classes have mostly Masters program students…not PHDs like all the other programs.

It used to be good, the program look outstanding - with a much stronger psychological focus…but, it is in the wrong hands now…and is going down hill fast! I am leaving after 2 years and $40k invested…with no chance to get transfer credits in other programs. That should tell you…what I think of the program.
