After reviewing your FAFSA information and determining that you have met all eligibility requirements, the Capitol College Financial Aid Office will send you a letter listing any financial aid you are eligible to receive. You must return one signed copy of the award letter to the Financial Aid Office by the date listed on the letter. If you don't return a signed copy, your awards will be cancelled.
Students enrolled in master's or doctoral degree programs in information assurance can apply to the Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP) sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Awards include tuition plus a $17,000 stipend. Part-time students, certificate candidates and employees of DoD and its agencies are not eligible. These "pay-for-service" scholarships require recipients to work for DoD upon graduation one year for each academic year they receive the scholarship. These DoD assignments are not necessarily in the Baltimore-Washington area.
For example, the Federal Perkins Loan program offers low-interest loans to undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional financial need. In order to be eligible, you must complete the FAFSA. Awards range from $500 to $4,000 per academic year for undergraduate students, and $500 to $5,000 for graduates.
On-campus jobs allow students to earn money toward their educational expenses. Funding for the Capitol College Work-Study Program is provided by various campus departments. Admitted students may contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
If you are a veteran or a veteran's dependent, you may be eligible for educational benefits. These benefits are available through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. If you think you may be entitled, contact the VA's education information hotline at 1-888-442-4551 or visit www.gibill.va.gov.
