STUDENT DEVELOPMENT


Capital University offers opportunities for engagement with faculty, staff and students outside the classroom experience. Student Development provides numerous programs, services, student engagement opportunities, and campus organizations that contribute to the intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual growth and development of students. Student Development functional areas help students learn and develop as leaders, serve the community, enhance interpersonal and professional skills, and develop friendships that place them on their path to success at Capital University and beyond.

Accessibility 

Capital University welcomes students with disabilities to be an integral part of the educational community. Our mission is to coordinate support services and accommodations for students with disabilities to ensure equal educational opportunities and equal access to university life.  The Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) seeks to make reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities through appropriate modification of educational procedures and methods used to assess student performance. Students with disabilities who wish to receive assistance from OAS are responsible for disclosing their disability to OAS, and requests are evaluated on an individual basis.  The Office of Accessibility Services may be reached by telephone (614-236-6611) or by email (accessibilityservices@capital.edu).  Please visit Accessibility Services at  http://www.capital.edu/about-capital/accessibility-services/.    

Campus Ministries

  • Embrace Ministries, the university-sponsored Christian campus ministry, is an ecumenical, Christian ministry run by students and advised by the University Pastor. While centered in contemporary Lutheran values, Capital’s university-sponsored ministry intentionally includes a vast array of denominational and theological traditions. Embrace also hosts small groups, retreats, service events, and other events.
  • The Interfaith Student Organization is Capital’s university-sponsored interreligious organization sponsored in partnership with the Office for Diversity and Inclusion. Ran by students and advised by the University Pastor, the Interfaith Council amplifies the programs of global religious, spiritual, and cultural organizations on and off campus, as well as hosts their own events to feature the gift of Capital’s increasing diversity.
  • Worship - 

Capital Worship, hosted by Embrace, is a traditional ecumenical service, with organ-led music, preaching, prayers, and testimony, every Wednesday from 10:00-10:35AM, in Gloria Dei Worship Center, inside Trinity Lutheran Seminary.

  • Pastoral Care & Faith Coaching - In times of personal stress, collegiate anxiety, and questions of faith, the University Pastor is available for pastoral care and faith coaching. Available to any Capital community member of any spiritual background, this provides a safe, confidential space for reflection, mentoring, and support. This can be scheduled directly with the University Pastor.
  • Prayer Spaces - There are two interfaith prayer spaces, one in Kerns 101 (open during business hours) and one in Saylor-Ackermann Lobby (open 24 hours), open to members of the Capital from every spiritual background for meditation, prayer, or quiet reflection. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The three worship spaces on campus - Kable Chapel in Kerns Religious Life Center, as well as Schenk Chapel and Gloria Dei Worship Center in Trinity Lutheran Seminary - can be reserved for group events through Meeting and Events Services.
  • The Center for Faith and Learning is an initiative at the intersection of the academy and spirituality. Each year, the CFL hosts speakers, conferences, lunch events, and retreats to deepen the relationship of academic and spiritual formation.
  • Religiously-Affiliated Student Groups - There are various student-run religious groups on campus, including Jewish Student Association, Muslim Student Association, Episcopal Student Fellowship, Catholic Student Organization, Cru, CCO, and Young Life.

Citizenship / Community Expectations

As members of Capital University, students have voluntarily entered into a community of learners who are expected to exhibit thoughtful academic study and discourse, and ethical and socially responsible behavior on and off- campus. Capital University is committed to student development and personal growth. Conduct occurs in the context of a community of scholars dedicated to seeking excellence in academics, personal learning, and leadership. We expect students to be reflective of the university values and behavioral expectations as they practice self and group advocacy and personal responsibility.

Capital establishes expectations, policies, and procedures that are designed to protect individual freedoms and build an ethical and just community of learners. The Student Handbook outlines the expectations for student conduct both on campus and within our community. The policies, procedures and information in this document preserves free and open exchange of ideas and opinions for all members of the Capital University. This free and open exchange is central to the mission of the University. All Capital students assume an obligation to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with the University’s function as an educational institution. The Student Code of Conduct protects the freedoms and liberties inherent in an academic community for individuals and groups of students.

Capital Dining Facilities

Food plays an important role in daily campus life.  Capital Dining Services understands that fact and embraces it!  We want to help you create lifelong memories whether you are a student, faculty or staff member, a prospective student or one of our treasured alumni.  Menu variety and quality are integral to that success and we hope to display that variety in our locations on campus. 

The Capital Court Dining Room is located in the Harry C. Moores Student Union and is our all-you-care-to-eat dining location.  Enjoy access to everything from your favorite comfort foods to ultimate culinary delights from around the globe.  Enjoy the Capital Grounds Café in Saylor-Ackerman Lobby where you can surf the internet, meet with friends, or study while enjoying some delicious pastries and your favorite specialty coffee beverage!  The One Main Café also offers a unique environment for an additional late-night destination with a menu to match its décor. 

Meal Plans

Dining plans are required of all students living in traditional residence halls; Capital Commons, Capital University Apartments, and Sheridan Avenue Apartments and House residents can purchase an optional plan.

All First Year students and Transfer (those with 15 or fewer hours) students living on campus will be enrolled in the Ultimate Plus plan for fall semester.

Housing

The Residential and Commuter Life program is an integral part of the educational experience at Capital University. Undergraduate students who are officially enrolled full-time in classes at Capital University are required to live in university residence halls, apartments, or houses managed through the Residential and Commuter Life Office, unless they have received an approved released from the housing requirement. The Residence Life staff works collaboratively with students to create a living and learning environment that supports academic and personal development. Students are responsible for becoming familiar with the policies and procedures as outlined in the Capital University Student Handbook.

For residency purposes, a Commuter is defined as any student who has an approved release from the housing requirement, per the criteria listed below. A Resident is defined as any student who is or will be living in the Capital University residence halls, apartments, or houses managed through the Residential and Commuter Life Office.

Capital University recognizes that some students may live within the area or have other circumstances that may make them eligible to apply to reside off-campus. The following is a list of those eligibility requirements:

  • Age 22 or above
  • Completed 60 credit hours by the start of next semester
  • Married (marriage certificate required)
  • Live with parents/court appointed guardians in permanent residency within 30 miles of the campus (This information will be verified with the Office of Admission/Registrar). Please note, the 30 mile requirement for release becomes effective with students who entered Capital University during the Fall 2012 semester.
  • Special Accommodations: Diagnosis of an ongoing health-related issue requiring special living accommodations that University housing cannot reasonably provide (supporting documentation and registration with the Office of Disability Services required). 
  • Extenuating Circumstances: Change in Financial Status which demonstrates a hardship if the student is required to live on campus. 

Housing Release Process:

Students who desire to live off-campus for the Fall semester must complete and submit an On-Line Housing Release Request on or before June 15. Students who desire to live off-campus for the Spring semester must complete and submit an On-Line Housing Release Request on or before December 1. If there is a change in residency status, students must request a Financial Aid Estimator through the Office of Financial Aid. Please note that applications from resident students requesting a Spring Release will only be considered for those students who have documented extenuating circumstances which demonstrate a possible risk or hardship if the student is required to live on campus.

Requests will be evaluated and students will receive written notification of their release status. Students are strongly cautioned against signing a lease before receiving official notification that they have been released from the Residency Requirement. Those who fail to meet University criteria for residing off-campus will be assigned to the University room and board plan and billed accordingly, whether or not they select to physically reside or eat on campus.Please note - Battelle Scholars, Brockman Scholars, Capital Scholars, Collegiate Fellows, Global Ambassadors and Transfer Fellowship winners are required to live in university housing and maintain campus residency.  If a student decides to move off campus, the student will forfeit their scholarship, and their financial aid award will revert to what it was before the award.

International Students

Capital University welcomes international students and values them as an important part of the Capital University student community. The Center for Global Education is just one of many offices on campus to support the success of the international student community and to encourage global learning between all students.  International students provide an important perspective to the education of U.S. students and once graduated, go forward to be leaders in government, industry, business, education, the fine arts and health professions.  Capital University enrolls students from more than 30 countries.

International students pay the same fees and must meet most of the same admission criteria as U.S. students. In addition, international students need a minimum TOEFL score of at least 500 pBT, 61 on the iBT TOEFL or 6.0 IELTS with specific sub scores for the traditional undergraduate program to ensure that they can experience success in the classroom. Students applying for Nursing must have a minimum 550 pBT, 80 iBT or 6.5 IELTS for admission to the traditional undergraduate nursing program and a 600 pBT, 100 iBT or 7.0 IELTS for the ABSN (accelerated) program.  Undergraduate, international students whose TOEFL score are below iBT 76 or pBT 540 and/or have an SAT reading/writing score below a 460 are required to take UNIV 101 Academic Reading and Writing for International Students and UNIV 102 Spoken Communication for International Students before taking UC 110 and 120.

For academic year 2021-22, students may submit a Duolingo score of a 105 or higher for admission for all majors except the nursing program. Students using Duolingo for demonstration of English proficiency, must take an English language placement test during international student orientation to confirm the appropriate undergraduate English course placement.

International students and their dependents on Capital’s I-20 or DS-2019 designation must meet the university’s health insurance requirements, which minimally require major medical coverage of U.S. $100,000 with no daily caps on hospitalization; medical evacuation coverage of U.S. $50,000 and repatriation of remains at U.S. $25,000. Capital University works with a specific insurance provider each year to provide coverage. Please contact the Center for Global Education for a complete list of specific insurance requirements.  Requests for waivers must be approved by the Center for Global Education.

The Center for Global Education offers support services to students such as international student orientation, personal counseling, information regarding F-1 & J-1 immigration regulations, tutoring assistance, vocational counseling and workshops.  In addition, each student has an academic adviser who assists them with decisions affecting course work and progression towards a degree in their chosen major. The Center for Global Education as well as the Global Student Association provide additional programming open to all Capital University students.

F-1 immigration policies require undergraduate international students on F-1 status to enroll in a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester.  An exemption to this immigration requirement is the last term of enrollment, but this must be first authorized with an advisor in the Center for Global Education.  Students on F-1 status may only take 1, 3 hour on-line course each semester that may count as part of their full-time enrollment.  Students may choose to take a “vacation term” during the summer semester where they may take a reduced course load or a complete break, but they must enroll again for the fall semester.

Degree-seeking students on F-1 status, who wish to engage in any off-campus internship or field placement, whether paid or unpaid, should first meet with an international advisor regarding curricular practical training.

The Global Student Association provides peer support and social activities to students from abroad and sponsors educational events, such as an international fair for the entire campus. U.S. students also are encouraged to join and participate.

Capital’s ESL (Intensive English Language) program offers intensive instruction of up to 20 classroom hours per week at different levels for non-native speakers of English to prepare them for university study. The basic skill areas that are covered are reading, writing, grammar, listening and speaking. American culture and study skills are incorporated in the coursework. After achieving the necessary language proficiency in the ESL program, students may choose to apply to Capital University for degree programs.
