FlexPath Learning Format

Learning that flexes with your life

At Capella, we’re reshaping higher education with our game-changing FlexPath format. You can learn on demand, leverage your experience, and move at your own speed. FlexPath puts you in control, so you can earn a degree on your terms.

FlexPath puts you in control

Earn your degree in 12 months and under $11,500*

*Generally, the fastest 10% of students finish in a year. Your program length and cost will vary by your degree program, transfer credits, the per-session cost, and how quickly you complete courses. Books, supplies, and other fees apply.

Learn on demand

With FlexPath, you control the schedule. Finish a course and advance to the next one without having to wait. Need extra time on a new topic? You can take it. Our FlexPath support team is always available if you need help.

Control your costs

By charging for a 12-week billing session, rather than per credit, FlexPath can help you control your cost. You take one or two courses at a time, and complete as many as you want in 12 weeks for one tuition fee. The faster you move through your coursework, the less it costs to earn your degree.
