    Important information about WebAdvisor

    Students can use WebAdvisor for many functions besides registering for classes. Students can access financial information; communicate with advisers; register for classes; view grades and transcripts; and finally, apply for graduation on this page.

    One tool that students may find helpful is the program evaluation. This program is listed under Academic Profile. The program evaluation is updated every semester. It includes the total number of credit hours you have at Capital and the number you need to complete to graduate. It lists your GPA, grades and courses completed. It also identifies courses needed to complete your program of study. Students sometimes submit this document to employers to verify grades. Take a few minutes to become familiar with the WebAdvisor.

    How to connect your Capital e-mail to another e-mail address

    How often do you check your Capital e-mail? Do you realize that the university and the School of Nursing use that route to communicate with you? Repeatedly, faculty members hear students say that they don’t check their e-mail often. As a result, they miss esssential information. Please recognize that it is your responsibility to check your e-mail and that you are held responsible for information sent to you via that route.

    Our society seems to be in a transition in the way we communicate. Increasingly, e-mail is becoming the norm for much communication. On an economic level, it also makes sense for the university to communicate with students and faculty via e-mail.

    Would life be simpler with one less e-mail account? Would you like to have your Capital e-mail forwarded to your home account? Well, you can accomplish this. It is possible to have your Capital e-mail forwarded to your home account. You can do this by following these steps:

    • Sign onto your Capital e-mail account.
    • Locate the RULES box in bottom left corner and click it open.
    • A big box will appear – just fill in the blanks. REMEMBER, you want ALL mail forwarded, not just that sent ONLY to you (i.e.: if the professor e-mails the whole class and you have not selected ALL you will not get the message)
    • SAVE the change.

    How to get your student ID, e-mail account and parking pass

    ID, E-mail Account
    Once you have been accepted into the BSN-Completion Program, you will receive a letter assigning you to an academic adviser. The letter will contain a “pink slip.” You will need to bring the pink slip to Information Technology (I.T.), located in the lower level of Blackwell Library, to get your Capital picture ID and e-mail account. In order to get your ID and e-mail account, you will need to present a picture ID. If you have questions about this process you may call the I.T. Help Desk at 614-236-6508 or by e-mailing

    Parking Pass
    In the mail you will receive a pamphlet on Motor Vehicle Regulations at Capital University. This pamphlet discusses the rules and regulations of parking at Capital. It includes the types of permits and their cost. Every motor vehicle operated or parked on the property of Capital University by a student must be registered with the Public Safety Office and display a valid permit. Permits can be purchased at the Public Safety Office on College Avenue.
