Tuition & Financial Aid
An Investment in Your Future
A commitment to higher education brings opportunities for personal and professional growth. The investment you make now – in time, hard work, and money – will pay off in increased earnings, job security, and personal satisfaction. But in order to make an informed decision, you need all the facts.
We believe that each Capella student should have a clear picture of the financial investment required to earn a degree. Before you even apply, you'll understand the cost of your education and learn about the scholarships, grants, military discounts, and financial aid that can provide the additional support you need to reach your goals.
My job is to assist learners with pretty much the whole application process.Enrollment Counselor
