I never ever write these types of reviews but I wholeheartedly do NOT recommend this university. I am so so disappointed - 2 years of my time and over USD $20K...GONE.
Whether or not they're a scam, I don't know - all I know is that I am not able to graduate from this university and had to pay an insane amount of money.
If you are an INTERNATIONAL STUDENT (as in NOT a US CITIZEN) - AVOID at all cost!
There is false advertisment on the website saying they accomodate international students - when it's time to do your practicum or internship you receive 0 help.
1. Capella does not have a SEVIS ID because they are not registered as an "international university."
2. The MASTERS OF ADDICTION program is NOT recognized.
3. NO ONE will provide you with help, guidance, or advice.
4. They are unwilling to help accomodate tricky situations.
Obviously I did not know all of this at first - they have great marketing and programs - flexible, study from all over the world, blah blah blah. NO.
Don't be fooled.
I read reviews like the one I wrote and thought to myself those people were just unlucky or whatever, but now I am one of those people and I swear if I had more funds I would sue this university.
P.S. Check their graduation rate. 17%. Really?
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
