I worked at Capella University for more than a decade - I was privy to inside knowledge about what took place behind the scenes. The enrollment department is encouraged to enroll learners in programs regardless of their ability to pay back student loans.
I witnessed colleagues knowingly enroll individuals that were fraudulent - and did so because management pushed that they hit a certain number. Don't be fooled that Enrollment Counselors aren't compensated on enrollments - they are - it's just hidden in the review. The managers are horrible to staff that misses their "targets" and force people to quit that don't meet their goals. Enrollment Counselors are not counselors - they are in sales - and their only goal is to get you enrolled so they get credit and get a raise or a promotion.
Capella does not care if you stay in the program - they just want your money. Capella knows that their Bachelor's program has horrible retention rates but they continue to push it and lie about the retention numbers.
Do not waste your time. The degrees are WORTHLESS in the real world.
