Not all costs need to come out of your own pocket

Scholarships are a good way to reduce your overall cost of tuition.

  • Capella scholarships, many noncompetitive, are free money and do not need to be paid back. Ever.
  • Capella scholarship eligibility may be based on degree program, field of study, and a combination of other factors. It’s not based on financial need.
