Capella University

There's been a remarkable and very welcome change in the way that student loans are subsidized in the US recently. Little noticed, it's going to change things for an online college like Capella for the better, for the students too.

Capella offers a number of online programs leading to some 76 graduate and undergraduate degrees and a further 16 certifications. All of this means that students can study in their own time, in the comfort of their own home and still acieve the qualifications necessary for success in today's ever more competetive job marketplace.

Now it used to be that you could not get Federally subsidized student loans unless a college conducted more than 50% of its teaching on campus. This has now been changed, so that online places like Capella can also recive students funded by such loans. This is a great advance and one that will help many more students achieve their goals.
