Admission Made Easy
Capella University's admissions process takes you from start to finish in a few steps, and you don't need to take a GRE or GMAT to be admitted. Capella is a journey you won't be taking alone, either. You'll have an Enrollment Counselor who will be there every step of the way as your one point of contact.
Your counselor will help you:
- Identify the program that best matches your professional goals
- Understand your potential for transfer or prior learning credit
- Determine your time to completion
- Estimate your tuition and fees
- Access financial aid, discounts, and grants
- Identify program admissions requirements
- Complete your application materials
- Register for your first courses
- Order books and other materials
Your Enrollment Counselor's one-to-one support means you'll always know who to turn to when you have questions, need assistance, or want to find out where you are in your admissions process.
We really try to help you reflect on what are you doing here as a learner at Capella, and what's important to you and how can you make yourself successful.– Kathe Kacheroski
