A typical Capella student is one where they can work independently and on their own time schedule. They must be disciplined and be able to create and stick to a schedule of their choosing. If a student has a busy life then Capella would be for them

Busy. This word describes any online student for me, a student that needs the ability to learn at any time and any where. Most of the students at Capella are devoured by the stresses of the real world. Children, marriage, full time jobs, and all sorts of scenarios that of which set us apart from the traditional student. For myself I am able to relate to this as I am a soccer coach for a high school, skills club, and a soccer club all on top of balancing an internship with the MLS team in our community AND working mornings at LA Fitness to make ends meet. If anyone is looking to attend college and willing to grit through the stresses of everyday real world - Capella University is your match.

When I was in high school, I often wondered what it would be like to go to university. I always thought of college students as being cool adults, rushing to class together with friends and textbooks in hand.

Now that I’m an actual, soon-to-graduate university student, I get to experience that life firsthand. There are a few lessons that I've learned as a student that I'd like to share.

Set a schedule of activities for each day: At most U.S. colleges, classes are held during the day Monday through Friday. With this in mind, international students should plan to spend the majority of these days in class, as it’s less common to schedule courses during the evenings or on weekends.

I prefer to have classes in the morning, and all in one chunk rather than having them spread apart at different times of the day. That way, I can be done with all my classes by noon and start working on my assignments after lunch.

Speaking of lunch, most universities offer meal plans for their students, and some even require freshmen to be on a meal plan. Although this might sound unfair at first, it is actually a good idea, as it forces students to make new friends.

Contrary to popular belief, doing homework can be a very social and entertaining activity. A lot of the time, students will form study groups to go over the materials discussed in class, and if allowed, to work on assignments together.

From what I have seen they are non-traditional students. If you are self driven, have good time management skills and like to learn then Capella is for you.

Anonymous, Student, Capella University, Class of 2017

You should be self motivated and have solid time management skills. Since Capella classes are all online, you really need to be able to stay on top of your classes every day, and meat the weekly deadlines for course work and discussions. I imagine a traditional school would require similar attributes of their students, however it seems like there is more to it with Capella. Since you never have a class to rush out to, the deadlines can often get away from you. Being able to manager yourself to meet course requirements is extremely important.
