The Community for Academic Progress (CAP) Program is an exciting program designed to allow students to enroll in grouped or paired courses that share common themes, activities, and assignments. Since the courses are linked, students take these classes concurrently (during the same semester), allowing faculty and students to work and learn together. Whether you are transitioning from high school or are a continuing college student, CAP might have a learning community for you! While college may seem overwhelming, CAP addresses your needs in an environment of caring faculty, staff, and administrators. In addition to learning communities, CAP offers math courses that are only open to CAP students, which means everyone in a math CAP class is part of the CAP program.

  • A convenient class schedule
  • Guaranteed classes
  • CAP Information Sessions
  • Access to technology/laptops
  • Supplemental Instructional (SI) Leaders
  • Field trip opportunities to four-year universities
