Capitol Offers Discount on Master’s Programs for Alumni
LAUREL, MD (June 16, 2011) – Starting in the Fall 2011 semester, Capitol College will begin offering a 10% discount on all its master’s degree programs to new alumni applicants.
Alumni of Capitol’s undergraduate degree programs are eligible for the discount, along with alumni seeking a second or third master’s degree and alumni who have been readmitted to the college.
“The new alumni discount creates the perfect opportunity for Capitol alumni to earn another degree from their alma mater at a reduced rate,” Tony Miller, director of graduate admissions, said. “Whether they are earning an additional master’s degree or are enrolling in their first graduate program, a master’s degree gives each Capitol alumni a distinct competitive advantage in the workplace.”
Capitol offers master’s degrees in business administration (MBA), astronautical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, Internet engineering, information assurance and information and telecommunications systems management.
The master’s programs are offered exclusively online using real-time, live-streaming audio, which offers students the convenience of online learning coupled with the stimulation of a classroom experience. The classes are offered in eight-week and 16-week terms.
“As an alum, you are aware of the quality of our education, and the caring manner in which it is delivered,” Dr. Vic Maconachy, vice president for academic affairs, said. “You will find the continuation of that same rigor and caring with our online graduate programs. Please consider returning to your alma mater to continue your education and professional development.”
Capitol College is the only independent college in Maryland dedicated to education in engineering, computer science, information technology and business through practices of leadership and innovation. Founded in 1927, Capitol offers associate, bachelor’s and master's degrees, a Doctor of Science in Information Assurance, professional development training and certificates.
