Start Now & Save Thousands

By enrolling at Capella University now, you can save thousands on your tuition. Capella–sponsored grants are not based on financial need and do not require repayment. Instead, these special grants are available to everyone who enrolls now in qualified programs and meets other eligibility requirements. Grants are easy to apply for, and are an excellent way to help pay for your college education. New students are only eligible to apply for one of the grants listed below.

To receive the grant, new students must enroll at Capella and apply for the grant before their first course begins and no later than September 8, 2014. FlexPath applicants are not eligible.
