Tuition & Fees

The following rates are in effect for the 2016-2017 academic year beginning Fall 2016 and continuing through Spring 2017. A discounted Summer 2016 rate is available. Tuition rates are subject to change without notice. Capitol Technology University offers students an important protection against rising tuition rates by guaranteeing a tuition lock to entering full-time undergraduates. That means Capitol students, unlike students at most other colleges across the nation, will not receive a tuition increase throughout up to five years of study.
