Jumpstart is available to any Capella applicant with a high school diploma or equivalent. If you don’t meet Capella’s admission requirements because you are 18-23 years old with less than 24 quarter credits of prior college-level coursework, Capella Jumpstart provides a pathway that may qualify you for admission.
Note: Veterans or active military service members, regardless of age or credits earned, are eligible to apply directly to Capella University. Learn more.
You can begin college-level coursework at Sophia to prepare for online learning as you work towards eligibility for admission in a Capella program.
Step one: Register for, and successfully complete, two no-cost general education courses with Sophia.
Step two: Apply to the Capella bachelor’s GuidedPath program that’s right for you.
If Capella extends an admissions offer, your Sophia courses will automatically transfer to Capella where they will receive credit. Additional admissions requirements must be met for the BSN program.
