every experience is subjective, I can say with certainty that
my graduate experience at Capella was positive and fruitful.
I recently finished my MS in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, so my
judgement may be clouded by the fact that I'm so
relieved to have finished. Bottom line: The format makes
for a challenging and rich experience. In many ways
it is a “sink or swim” format because the instructors
want you to complete the syllabus while participating real-time with
others in the course (while maintaining the rest of your
life). So, if you get behind, catching up can
be very challenging and stressful. However,once you've made the
decision to attend Capella, and are ready for the work,
then you shouldn't have any problems getting through. You
just have to be engaged, don't make excuses for not
getting the work done, and be your own advocate for
I attended the U.S. Air Force Academy for my
undergrad degree. Academically it was very challenging and overwhelming
at times. Comparing an online school to this is
difficult, but I can honestly say that I worked every

ability to present the material, challenge learners, and provide a
seamless format that accentuates the process, and doesn't hinder it.
Capella's iGuide has continually improved during my 3.5 years and

I would like to know more about your experience in Capella's I/O psychology program. I am looking at I/O programs at the moment and graduating with a B.S. in psychology May 2013.
How was the I/O program structured? Support system? Feedback? Do they have a PhD program? Did you have a problem finding a job afterwards with a Master's from a for profit university? Are internships available?
I am looking at all my options but my professors do not seem to be big fans of for profit universities. For me, I am more interested in the quality of education and outcome since I am a non-traditional student.
