    We Can Help

    Our goal is to help you bridge the gap between your family contribution and the cost of your educational expenses. Nearly all Capital students receive some financial assistance. Email a financial aid specialist to find out how we can help you and your family.

    First, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Then you will automatically be considered for most federal and state aid and all funds that Capital University offers.

    Accepted students, view your financial aid award on WebAdvisor using your Capital username and password.

    Applying for Financial Aid

     Keep in mind filing early will generally provide you with the greatest access to all types of financial assistance. Look over our timeline for applications and decisions to know when you need to start planning your college finances.

    • Apply for a PIN with the U.S. Department of Education (ED).
    • This personal identification number will let you use various ED online systems. You must apply for a PIN in order to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you are dependent, your parents should also apply for their own PIN to electronically sign your FAFSA.
    • File the FAFSA electronically. You will need Capital's Title IV Code, which is 003023. If you are unable to file the FAFSA electronically, please contact the Financial Aid Office for additional guidance. Be sure to file as soon as possible after January 1.

    You may report special circumstances after you submit your FAFSA.
