My Support Team
We're Here to Help
Our team of enrollment counselors and other advisers are here to help you find the degree program that's right for you, apply for admission, and walk you through the financial aid process.
When you begin working with your enrollment counselor, you will soon discover that we take the definition of “counselor” very seriously. We love to ask questions. We will ask you what you are looking for in a degree program, what you need, and about your ultimate goals, and then we will carefully listen to your concerns and needs.
When you're ready, we have made it easy to connect with an enrollment counselor. Just call us at 1.866.679.9682, e-mail us or sign up to receive more information.
New Learner Experience
Nervous about going back to school? Our new student orientation seminar will walk you through what you need to know and give you the confidence to succeed throughout your degree program.
Our diverse team of counselors runs the full gamut – from pre-enrollment through graduation and beyond. Once enrolled here, you will be assigned to an academic adviser to support you as you navigate your advanced degree at Capella.
If you can't find what you are looking for in our library databases and other online resources for your coursework or research papers, our library staff is here to assist you. Our librarians are available by e-mail or phone consultations to help guide you in the right direction.
After you graduate from Capella, we will continue to support you and your career...forever. For career assistance as a current student or alum, simply log onto our secure website, called iGuide, to access our free resources and to receive personalized support from a career counselor.
We recognize that you are a unique individual with your own specific goals, vision and educational needs. During your academic journey at Capella, our mission is to help you fully understand your underlying motivations as you carve your own path.
Doctoral Advising Team
If you are planning to enroll at Capella as a doctoral candidate, you will have a special team of advisers dedicated to answering your questions and concerns. We are here to be your moral support, your guidepost, your cheerleader or whatever assistance you need as you work through your comprehensive exams and dissertation process.
Developing strong critical and academic writing skills is fundamental to your success at Capella. If you need it, we will help you every step of the way. Our online writing center provides free tutoring services plus numerous resources and tools to help you become a more effective writer.
You may be surprised to learn that not all learning at Capella takes place online. Many of our graduate-level students participate in colloquia, where students and faculty gather together from all over the country. These in-person events are a required component of most doctoral programs and some master's programs.
Commencement & Events
Capella students inspire us every day. We love to hear the tremendous personal stories of strength, sacrifice and successes our students share with us at every commencement and other events. We hope to hear your story soon, too.
Supporting your career and professional development is a top priority for us. As an alum, you will enjoy a multitude of lifetime benefits, including access to the Alumni Library, Career Center, and professional development courses.
