FlexPath: The Most Direct Path to a Degree
For select programs Capella also offers a self-paced learning option called FlexPath. FlexPath allows you to complete your degree on your own schedule, at your own pace. You can move quickly through more familiar coursework or more slowly as needed — without the constraints of preset due dates. For many students FlexPath offers a more personalized learning approach with greater freedom, more control and the potential to save time and money.

Sophia Low-Cost Undergraduate Courses
You can save time and money by choosing to take your general education required courses at our learning partner, Sophia Pathways, rather than at Capella. For example, fulfilling just two of your general education requirements would typically take 3 months and cost about $3,000. You could complete these same requirements at Sophia in under 60 days — for around $650.

You can earn credits through our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process by demonstrating mastery of competencies, and may be eligible to earn credit for previous coursework, experience and learning.
