FlexPath: Live your life & pursue your degree

Your schedule is just that—yours. And it’ll stay that way thanks to our award-winning learning format, FlexPath. You have the flexibility to learn on your time, your budget, and your terms. For example, with FlexPath, you can earn your degree in 12 months and under $11,500.*

*Generally, the fastest 10% of students finish in a year. Your program length and cost will vary by your degree program, transfer credits, the per-session cost, and how quickly you complete courses. Books, supplies, and other fees apply.

How does FlexPath work?

Learn at your own pace

With no set semester or quarter system, learning is entirely on your schedule. Finish a course and move on to the next one without having to wait. Need extra time on a new topic? You can take it. Our FlexPath support team is always available if you need help. 

Set your own deadlines

If you have a vacation planned or a big project at work, that’s OK. We know life can get busy. The FlexPath format lets you set deadlines that work for you, so you can fit everything into your schedule and set yourself up for success. Plus, our academic coaches are here to help you stay on track.

Leverage what you know

Do you have previous degrees, certificates, or work experience? Your past work and education may be transferable to Capella, freeing you up so you can spend more time mastering new topics.

Control your cost

You’re not paying per course or credit. Instead, FlexPath is subscription-based. That means you take one or two courses at a time and complete as many as you want in 12 weeks for one tuition fee.3 The faster you move through your coursework, the more money you can save.
