LET US HELP
Welcome to Capella
Select your program and we'll help guide you through important information as you prepare for the application process.
The FlexPath learning format offers flexibility – and support – to help you fit earning a degree into your busy life. Set your own deadlines. Use what you already know to progress at your own pace. And take advantage of one tuition fee every 12-week billing session to help lower costs. Books, supplies and other fees apply.
We support your courseroom success: a scoring guide explains what you will be evaluated on, and a competency map shows your progress. You can take assessments up to three times and record your best score.
You’ll use the same quick and seamless process for submitting assessments for every course. Once you’ve completed a course, you’ll be enrolled in the next course in the program.
You’ll be assigned an academic team, which includes the course instructor and your academic coach. They’re ready to support you.
The FlexPath format lets you move quickly through information you already know so you can move on to new topics.
Choose a degree program to see how your pace can determine your price. The more courses you successfully complete each 12-week billing session, the faster you can progress and the more you can save. Check your program’s pricing information for details.
Your program length and cost will vary depending on transfer credits, per-session cost and how quickly you complete courses. Estimate is based on "typical pace" (median speed of FlexPath students), "accelerated pace" (speed of fastest 25% of FlexPath students), or "slower pace" (speed of fastest 75% of FlexPath students) and assumes average number of transfer credits. Books, supplies and other fees not included in this estimate.
Regardless of the learning format you choose, Capella may be able to accept credits you’ve earned from another accredited school. Learn more about transfer credits.
Each course must be completed within 12 weeks: within that time frame, it’s up to you. With FlexPath, you can complete coursework on your schedule and move on without having to wait.
You can take one or two courses at a time. When you finish a course, you can start the next one without having to wait. There is no limit to how many courses you complete during each billing session.
All coursework is evaluated through competency-based assessments. Each assessment is broken down into competencies, or criteria, that are all assessed with one of four performance levels: distinguished, proficient, basic or non-performance. These performance levels are what appear on your official transcript for each competency within the course. If you’re struggling with an assessment, coaching and other resources are available to help you.
When you finish a course, you will automatically be registered for the next course in your program plan. If you wish to register for a course earlier, or if a new course isn’t open after 4–6 hours of finishing the prior course, contact a coach for help with registration.
With FlexPath you set your deadlines within the first 12 days of each course. While these deadlines can be adjusted at any time after you set them, you’ll be required to engage in a course activity at least once every 28 days and finish each course within 12 weeks.
