Financial Aid

CAPS offers opportunities for financial assistance, including federal and state grants and loans, merit and need-based scholarships, and employee tuition reimbursement. Full and part-time students, as well as veterans, lifelong learners, and contract employees, may be eligible for assistance.

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement Noncompliant Financial Aid Impact
Students who are administratively withdrawn from their classes for the fall semester for not complying with the university’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement will be ineligible for any type of financial aid, including scholarships, grants, fellowships, loans, remission, work study, etc. Noncompliant students will NOT have financial aid applied to their student account and will not receive a financial aid refund to help them cover living expenses.


Students who are enrolled in degree and select certificate programs and take a minimum number of credit hours each semester can be eligible for both merit and need-based scholarships. Special, donor-based scholarships are also available, in addition to unique options based on financial and professional needs.
