Doctoral Degrees at Capella University

In April 2018, a class-action lawsuit was filed against for-profit school Capella University for allegedly operating a bait-and-switch doctoral degree program. Specifically, plaintiffs claim that the school misleadingly represents the time and cost it takes doctoral students to complete a degree at the university when, according to the complaint, the university designed the doctoral programs to take longer than it promised students. (Wright et al v. Capella Education Company and Capella University, Inc., Case No. 18-cv-1062, D. MN.)
