How to Plan Your Week

Each Capella course is designed to require approximately 10-15 working hours per week. The actual time spent on coursework may vary, but all courses have been organized with the goal of maintaining a consistent workload from start to finish. There are no set classroom hours, so you can work at your own pace and in your own time. However, you will have deadlines throughout the week.

Capella suggests the below tips for time management:
