If after 7 business days you have not received the instructional email, please email our IT Help Desk directly at helpdesk@capital.edu to request assistance.

Complete the Financial Aid Worksheet

Visit our Financial Aid page to complete the Financial Aid Worksheet.


Submit Final Official Transcripts
(for provisionally admitted students)

Students who were admitted provisionally (prior to graduation at a previous institution and/or students who were admitted with outstanding prerequisite courses) must send final and official transcripts to Capital University prior to enrolling.


Complete the Virtual Graduate Orientation

Once you have set up your Capital email account, you will be sent a link to our virtual graduate orientation. Completing the orientation will provide you with information about obtaining your Capital Student ID card, parking passes, immunization records requirements, and more.


Confirm registration for courses

Most graduate and adult students are pre-registered for their first semester courses. Once your Capital email account is set up, you may log into Capital University’s administrative student information system (myCap) to view your scheduled courses. If courses are not listed, it may mean that your program has not yet registered newly admitted students. If you have questions regarding courses or registration, please contact the program director or Dean listed on your acceptance letter.


Pay Tuition and Fees

All payments are billed and processed by The Student Accounts Office. Students are encouraged to visit the Student Accounts website to learn about available payment methods, payment plan options, etc. Students who have been registered for courses can view tuition fees in their myCap portal.
