Capella University FlexPath?
#1
Hello guys,

I'm interested in Capella University's FlexPath bachelor degree program.
I'm planning to get 30 to 50 upper-level credits from Capella U to transfer them to another institution.
Do you guys have any experience with Capella University's FlexPath? do you find their courses to be easy?
I will buy only one subscription period to get all the credits I need. I'm not sure if that's a good plan.

Thanks,

I'll take Business and Psychology courses. Do you have any experience with them? I'll try to transfer them to FIU or other B&M university so that I can get full 90 liberal arts credits with upper level. Capella U is accredited so I'm sure I won't have problem with credit transfer to another institution.
Potentially, I can try to transfer 105 Capella U credits to CUNY as well.

Capella is on the quarter system, I think CUNY is as well. Have you taken any Sophia.org courses when they were free or when they had the 149/year offering? You can take courses free for the winter term at Strayer, they're a sister university of Capella. When you're taking a course or two, you should be able to do the $20 challenge exams at Strayer. They're mainly Liberal Arts and Business Administration courses, but still, many of them are upper level. Link: https://www.strayer.edu/tuition-and-fina...edit/exams

Thanks for the info. I already have sophia account. I'm interested in Strayer... do they give letter grades for the $20 exams?? without letter grades on transcript, it's extremely difficult to transfer credits. Most of universities don't accept credits without letter grades.

I found that all sophia courses won't have letter grades so they will be useless outside of capella U.

CUNY is on the semester credits not quarter credits. I have numeric grades from Sophia. When I had my transcripts sent to UMPI, Sophia suggested I use Parchment which is one of the electronic transcript services and Sophia is one of their clients. Many colleges use Parchment to issue transcripts as well. When UMPI accepted my Sophia credits, they included my numeric grade.

The Flex program is not really designed for you to just take whatever you want. Have you been in a CBE program before? You typically have to apply and be accepted into a program. You follow their degree plan and your advisor gives you your courses in the order of the degree plan. CBE programs aren't really designed to take whatever classes you want and then transfer them elsewhere. Have you discussed your plans with Capella?




UMPI: BLS with Management Information Systems, Project Management, and Management minors - Graduating March 2021

UMPI: MA in Organizational Studies - beginning March 2021

Community College: AS Individual Studies
Community College: AAS Business Administration

Sophia: Environmental Science, Developing Effective Teams, The Essentials of Managing Conflict, College Algebra, Visual Communication, Microeconomics, Introduction to Information Technology, Introduction to Statistics, Human Biology

Capella U won't include sophia course grades on transcript.

I just need lots of Business and Psychology credits. I plan to take everything in Business degree plan and change major to Psychology so I'll be able to take Psychology courses as well. Yes, I've discussed with them. This will be possible. I will be able to collect 60+ Business and Psychology credits that come with letter grades on transcript.

So this can potentially solve 105 transfer credit problem at CUNY.

1. Get 45 credits from sophia.org. This will enable you to apply to Capella FlexPath.
2. Pay $2500 to Capella, collect transferable RA credits in Business, Psychology, General Education. Make sure to discuss transferable courses with CUNY advisor before taking any course.
3. Transfer credits to CUNY School of Professional Studies. Choose Business Administration major.
4. Pay $4500 to CUNY. Take the remaining 5 courses at CUNY online.
5. Get a CUNY degree.

Total price: $7k

u should really contact CUNY first to know if all the credits you are getting from Capella would fit into their program. Just cause it's RA doesn't mean it would translate into the same mod at CUNY.
