You’ll access courses in an online courseroom, where instructors present engaging interactive learning experiences and guide weekly discussions. The online format gives you more flexibility to study on your time – just meet your deadlines and communicate regularly with your instructor and peers.
As a student, you will access and review your assessment rubric, coursework and weekly participation requirements.
You’ll chat with other students in weekly discussions guided by faculty. Ask questions and broaden your views. Then complete assessments and submit them by the deadline.
Every assignment has a purpose: to help you gain skills and knowledge that you can apply to your day-to-day career. You’ll demonstrate your new skills through discussion posts and assessments.
Students who choose GuidedPath pay per course or credit, so cost depends on your courseload, as well as your program and term. Explore options for discounts, tuition assistance and other funding options to save on tuition.
*All transfer and Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) credit must be completed prior to starting any program in the FlexPath format. Any professional certification or external courses taken concurrently with FlexPath enrollment cannot be recognized in the Capella degree program.
All of our programs are available in the GuidedPath learning format. We offer 47 graduate and undergraduate programs to choose from. Explore programs that align with your career and educational goals. Capella helps put you in control of your education.
Because courses are not live or in-person, you do not need to attend class at a specific time. As long as you meet the weekly deadlines for assignments and discussion posts, you can study whenever it’s convenient for you.
As a Capella student, you will be automatically registered for your first course. You can connect with your academic coach if you have questions about your first course or if you need help registering for your other courses. Registration begins 3–4 weeks before the course start date. Once you have an academic plan, you can register for courses in the upcoming term.
Most deadlines for coursework occur on Thursdays and/or Sundays but may vary by program and course. You will need to turn in your assignments before 11:59 p.m. Central Time on the dates they are due.
