    Visit Capital

    Make the trek and visit campus. We offer several group visits and personalized visit days.

    Receive Merit Scholarships and Grants

    All accepted students will be notified of scholarship eligibility. If you are a music student your scholarship letter will be sent to you after your audition. 100% of full time daytime accepted students receive a merit scholarship from Capital. Make sure your admission file is up to date by turning in December and February test scores.


    Submit the FAFSA

    The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is your key to Capital University, state and federal money. Capital's financial aid code is 003023 and you should file the FAFSA as soon as possible.


    Review Your Financial Aid Award

    Financial aid awards will be mailed and available online for review in the spring. The award will tell you your total cost to attend Capital next year. Your admission counselor will be calling you and your family to answer any questions and explain our payment options.

    Send Your Enrollment Deposit

    Your next step is to reserve your spot in the entering class by turning in your enrollment deposit. You must submit an advance deposit of $300 as a residential student or $200 as a commuting student. This payment is refundable upon written request until May 1, and is applied towards your annual fee.

    Become an Official Capital Student

    Upon receipt of your deposit a letter will be mailed to you in the spring with information regarding important documents that need to be completed over the summer.  

    Select an Orientation Date

    We offer two great programs for you. Summer orientation allows you to meet faculty, schedule classes and meet fellow Crusaders! Fall orientation starts the Thursday before classes and includes the traditional Gate Ceremony and Family picnic. Register for orientation online.
