COLLEGE ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM
The College Achievement Program is designed to:
Provide an opportunity to earn college credit while in high school
Provide an intellectual challenge during the junior and senior years
Allow students an opportunity to test ability to do college work
Ease the transition from high school to college
Reduce the duplication of curriculum that often occurs between the last year of high school and the first year of college
Transfer credit to most colleges and universities
Provide access to USI's David L. Rice Library
CAP students also pay a lower per-hour tuition rate than regular university students.
The College Achievement Program (CAP) is a cooperative
program between the University of Southern Indiana and
participating high schools. CAP allows highly motivated high
school junior and senior students to take regular college courses
in their own high schools at a reduced rate of tuition.
CAP courses are taught by carefully selected high school faculty
who are trained in special workshops by USI faculty members.
The CAP courses follow the same curriculum and academic
standards as those courses offered on the University of Southern
How Do I Earn College Credit in High School?
When you successfully complete your College Achievement Program course work, delivered in selected high schools by approved teachers, you earn both high school and college credit. University of Southern Indiana credit earned will be recorded on a transcript which becomes part of your permanent record and can be sent to any college or university at your request. The credit may be transferred to most colleges and universities in the country.
Credit recognition remains the prerogative of the institution granting it. If you have applied to an institution other than USI, it is wise to check with that college to be sure CAP credit will be accepted. Several thousand students have earned college credit in similar established programs, and the vast majority (over 90 percent) of these students have transferred college credit or been exempted from similar courses at higher education institutions. Visit this link to see what colleges and universities have accepted CAP credit in the past. CAP courses are continually evaluated by USI faculty to assure high academic standards.
The University of Southern Indiana is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
