Be very careful what you do next. Capella University takes revenge on students who speak out. My good friend graduated from Capella University yet she had witnessed a great deal of discrimination while she was attending. When she told her story and spoke out against them they suddenly revoked her degree. They stated that the degree was an error because she never completed her required classes. She has all the paper work to prove that she did complete the courses and is currently seeking legal help to have her degree restored. Even if she gets it restored she has discovered that her degree is no longer recognized in the state she lives so she can not get her license there. They boast about being accredited but they do not tell you that many states have revoked it.
She worked so hard to get that degree and spent so much money. They really worked her hard and she had a very grueling schedule. She gave up having fun and doing what she wanted to earn the degree. Now she has nothing to show for all of the hard work that she put in. If they screwed me like that I would be suing as well. Capella University sucks and does not have a problem with ripping you off if you stand up for yourself. After this happened to her we did some research and found that they have been sued many times and still are being sued. Beware Capella University, they are running a huge scam. Do not let them ruin your life the way they ruined my friends. Not all of their programs are scams but If I were you I would do a lot of research before considering this school. I hope others can learn from her experience and not let themselves get scammed buy a University that sucks.
It must be awful to put that amount of time and effort into getting a degree, only to have it revoked like that. Not to mention the cost, and the stress of sitting exams and so on and then you are left with nothing but a bad taste in your mouth.
I have never done a university like this but I do hear that most are a hassle. A sister of mine did one of those electrical college type places and just getting her main kit that she would use for everything was a pain to deal with. This was back in the 90's though and I would expect that things would have changed by now. I wonder if it makes a difference if the place is credited or accredited or not, I can think of the right word but I am sure someone here knows what I mean. After all if you pay that much for schooling, you would expect all supplies within a certain and reasonable time frame.
I have thought myself about taking some extra courses and while this old dog is out and about sometimes from the game, having that extra one or two pieces of paper seems like a good idea. I would just hope that any place I would be accepted at could take care of everything within a proper manner. I think I remember hearing about some places that if you end up not having all of your stuff they will refuse you from that semester of classes. Even if it were the schools fault I would think you would still need to wait until the classes start over again. I wonder if they have any types of compensation for when things like this happen? I mean its not like I could just re-arrange my work scheduled in order to start taking classes, then find out last minute I had to wait another few months. This would mess up both my work and my personal finances, thats just not a chance I might be willing to take. If I lose my job I lose my home.
Some places are genuine, even if the entire degree is completely studied for online. The degrees are welcomed in all places too, it's not like they are viewed as not worth the paper they are printed on.
I guess it just means that you have to be careful where you study and what you do.
