Obligation for Payment
You are obligated to pay tuition according to the provisions of the refund schedule. If you fail to make a payment to the college when it is due, you may be prohibited from classes or examinations; or your diploma, certificate or transcript may be withheld. Outstanding accounts will be sent to collections.

Undergraduate students have the following options to pay tuition:

  • Full payment at time of registration
  • Deferred payment plan
    The college offers a deferred payment plan for students who are unable to pay their tuition balance in full at registration. The deferred payment plan allows you to pay your tuition in three installments for semester-long courses: one-third at registration, one-third on or before the end of the fourth week of classes, and one-third on or before the end of the eighth week. If you're taking 8-week classes, you may also pay your tuition in three installments: one-third at registration, one-third on or before the second week of classes, and one-third on or before the sixth week of classes. The deferred payment plan costs $30, which is due with the first installment.

  • VA Benefits
  • Employer sponsorship

The Business Office accepts military tuition assistance, cash, personal checks, money orders, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.  Make any checks payable to Capitol College and mail it to the attention of the Business Office. You can make credit card payments online or by phone. The college also offers automatic credit card billing.  

Financial Aid Recipients

If you receive financial aid, you must pay at least one-third of the remaining balance at registration.

Veterans' Benefits
The Office of Financial Aid can help you explore your VA benefit options. You can expect an educational allowance based on courses that are legitimate parts of the degree programs approved for veterans. You must immediately notify the veterans' affairs office upon any change in course load. Each campus can provide you with the necessary paperwork to begin educational benefits.

Employer-sponsored Students
If you are sponsored by your employer, you must include authorization forms with your registration, and the college will bill the employer directly.

 

If you are reimbursed directly from your employer, then you must pay your tuition in full or enroll in a deferred payment plan. The cost of the deferred payment plan is $30.
