    Merit & Financial Aid Awards

    At Capital, we make it easy for you and award most of our scholarships and grants directly from the materials collected with your admission application. Your award letter was included in your acceptance packet. Your financial aid award will be sent after you are accepted and will let you know your estimated cost to attend Capital and include your merit award(s) and any need-based aid that results from filing the FAFSA. Your admission counselor will contact you once your award is available to go over it in detail and answer any questions you (or your family) may have.
