LET US HELP
Welcome to Capella
Select your program and we'll help guide you through important information as you prepare for the application process.
All Capella applicants must meet the following admissions criteria. Some degree programs and certificates have additional requirements. GRE, GMAT, SAT or ACT are not required for admission.
Don’t qualify yet? Start your program in our GuidedPath format and transfer to FlexPath once you successfully complete a set number of courses at a GPA of 2.8 or higher.
Some Capella degree programs have additional admission requirements. See the program page or ask an enrollment counselor for details. These requirements may include:
Create or log in to your account. This is where you can save your progress, pick up where you left off, check your status or start another application.
Enter your contact information and your Social Security number for federal reporting requirements and financial aid. We keep this information secure and confidential.
Provide transcripts from past universities, including military and other providers such as Sophia or StraighterLine. With your permission, we’ll request transcripts – once we receive them, apply eligible transfer credits to your program.
Depending on your program, you may need to provide additional materials, such as letters of recommendation, your resume, licensure information or assessments.
Your application fee covers administrative costs, transcript requests and transfer credit evaluations – for now, we’re waiving the $50 cost.
You’ll receive a decision on admission within two weeks of submitting your application. If you’re accepted and enroll in a program, we recommend that you create a financing plan and visit our online campus.
