Become a College Pro or Rock Star: The Cappex Cap Challenge

If you’re an avid user of, you are probably very familiar with the Cappex Cap Challenge and may have already risen all the way to “Rock Star” status. For the Cappex newbies out there and anyone else who might need a refresher, playing the Cappex Cap Challenge is a simple way for you to be rewarded as you make your college decisions.

As you progress through your college and scholarship search on, you’ll earn different virtual caps and climb through the ranks: Newbie, Rising Star, College Pro, and finally, Rock Star. The more you interact with colleges, apply to scholarships, and navigate the site, the sooner you will achieve a higher status and gain access to pretty cool perks.

If you collect 10 virtual caps, you’ll reach the College Pro level. After you collect 25 virtual caps, you’ll reach the Rock Star level and receive a Cappex baseball cap in the mail, joining our Rock Star Wall of Fame. Once you reach either of these levels, you will become eligible to apply for a special scholarship from Cappex. Each year, Cappex awards one $2,500 scholarship to a College Pro and one $5,000 scholarship to a Rock Star.

The April 30th deadline is quickly approaching for each scholarship opportunity, so don’t wait to begin playing the Cappex Cap Challenge. We want to help you earn the last few virtual caps you need in order to apply, so follow us on Facebook and Twitter to receive #CappexCapChallegeTips throughout the rest of this month!
