Capitol College Reduces Summer Undergraduate Tuition Rates
LAUREL, Md. (March 7, 2011) – Capitol College has continued its dedication to providing an affordable and practical education by lowering summer undergraduate tuition rates for the fourth consecutive year. Students taking classes in the engineering, computer science or technology undergraduate degree programs will pay just $421 per credit hour, while business and management majors will have their tuition dropped to $226 per credit hour.
Summer classes are perfect for students looking to earn their degree and enter the workforce ahead of schedule. With the reduced tuition prices, summer classes also allow students to finish their degree programs at a discounted price.
“This reduced summer rate provides a great academic opportunity for our students,” Dr. Vic Maconachy, vice president for academic affairs, said. “Students might use this reduction to accelerate their degree programs, pick up a second major, or explore new areas of study.”
Capitol offers 12 undergraduate degree programs ranging from information assurance to electrical engineering to business administration. In addition to reduced tuition, Capitol offers financial aid to more than 80 percent of its student body through scholarships, grants, loans and work-study programs.
Registration for summer courses begins March 30.
