Cappex tools help students pinpoint their dream school, and we've become one of the most successful college admissions tools on the web. How successful? Well, we've helped more than 9 million students find their dream college.

More than benefits

They're essentials.

Coverage that fits

With three medical plans, dental and vision coverage, health savings accounts, life insurance, and more, you have options. We offer coverage that suits your ever-changing needs - and your budget.

Work hard. Play hard.

Cappexians work hard every day, but that doesn't mean we don't know how to have a good time. Our employees are rewarded with ample paid time off, including vacation, sick days, and holidays.

Fun team activities

Cappexians love to have a good time. That's why we throw a killer holiday party, a summer outing, and other fun events throughout the year. And we can't forget to mention all the random fun that breaks out daily.

Money matching

We help students reach their goals every day. Why wouldn't we help our employees do the same? That's why we match half of your contributions - up to 4 percent - to your Cappex-sponsored retirement plan.

Convenient downtown location

No matter if you take the bus, el, or train from the suburbs, it's easy to get to our office. We're in the heart of downtown, surrounded by plenty of delicious restaurants if you want to go out for lunch. And did we mention there's a Chipotle in our building?

Sweet, sweet coffee (and free snacks!)

What does your snacktime or coffee break look like? Probably not as good as ours - we offer everyone pop, sparkling water, and plenty of delicious snacks to keep them energized throughout the day.


We understand that sometimes life circumstances mean it's tough to come into the office from 8:30am-5pm every day. That's why we give our employees the chance to work flex hours or work from home when they need to.

Flip-flop Fridays

Why limit it to Fridays? Around here, every day is flip-flop Friday. We're pretty casual, but you'll get bonus points for accessorizing with your Cappex cap.

We live by Cappexpectations

Our Cappexpectations drive our actions, both as individuals and a company. How do you stack up?

Take ownership

We take pride and ownership in our work. We believe the only way to be successful is to be held accountable and held to a high standard.

Act with urgency

We work in a fast-changing, highly competitive marketplace. To stay ahead of the curve, we must be agile and act with urgency.

Be the expert

To be the expert, our team members have to grow and learn new things every day. Cappexians don't just coast - they're always seeking additional knowledge and using the resources available to them. Be curious. Ask questions. Most importantly, learn!

Collaborate and build relationships

We encourage collaboration and strive to build relationships in and outside of the office. Cappexians are observant. Thoughtful. Approachable. Most importantly, they're just great people.

Act with respect and humility

Everyone is important and should be treated respectfully, regardless of their role at Cappex. We acknowledge that we could not enjoy our current success without those who have helped us along the way. We're grateful for what we've received, and we want to say thank you to everyone who contributes to our mission.

Discover better ways

We do not believe in reinventing the wheel. Instead, we're flexible, creative, and open to ideas. We want fresh perspectives that will help us find those better ways.
