About Capital University

Founded in 1830, Capital University is a private four-year undergraduate institution and graduate school located in the Columbus, Ohio, neighborhood of Bexley (about 5-10 minutes due east of downtown Columbus). Capital is a comprehensive, independent university grounded in the Lutheran tradition. With a focus on rigor and experiential learning, Capital capitalizes on their size, location, and heritage to develop the whole person, both inside and outside the classroom. Capital has over 60 majors and 3600 students who attend classes on their campus during the daytime and evenings. Capital has two different "transfer" programs. The first is the traditional transfer option into Capital's full-time day academic programs. The second is the adult degree completion option that is available for full or part-time enrollment during the evenings or weekends.
