11 Ways to Save

  1. 1

    FlexPath: Your pace determines your price

    FlexPath, our online, self-paced learning format, allows you to move faster through the material you know and spend more time on what you need to learn, putting you in control of your education. You can enroll in up to 2 courses at a time and once you complete a course, whether that takes you 2 weeks or 12, you are free to move on to the next course without having to wait for a new term to begin. Plus, the tuition is a flat fee every 12 weeks, so the faster your pace, the more money you save. Learn more about FlexPath.

    Credit for Real-World Learning

    To recognize what you’ve already accomplished, Capella offers opportunities to earn academic credits through our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process with your previous knowledge and select industry certifications—saving you time and money off of your degree.

    Sophia Low-Cost Undergraduate Courses

    You can save time and money by choosing to take your general education required courses at our learning partner, Sophia Pathways, rather than at Capella. For example, fulfilling just two of your general education requirements would typically take 3 months and cost about $3,000. You could complete these same requirements at Sophia in under 60 days — for around $650.

    Complete your degree faster and save thousands with streamlined programs or combined degree options. Contact an enrollment counselor to learn more.

    Books and Other Materials

    Many of our programs include an easy, low-cost solution for all your resources with our quarterly Resource Kit and some of our programs include free e-books. Either way, all of your materials are ready for you three weeks before course start—no more searching, shipping, or scrounging for your books. The best part? All of the e-books you receive for your program are yours to keep, and you can use them anytime, anywhere*. Contact an enrollment counselor to learn more.

    *Subject to publisher licensing terms regarding number and types of devices where e-books may be stored.
