Each USI course is designated a specific number of credit hours which determines the amount paid for the class. For example, enrollment in English 101, a three credit hour course on the Priority List, costs $25 x 3 or $75. Enrollment in PED 282, a two credit hour course NOT the Priority List, costs $80 x 2 or $160.

Certain contingent fees (e.g., parking) are waived for CAP participants. Students are responsible for their own textbooks and materials. No additional fees should be charged to the student's account; if this is not the case, the CAP office should be notified immediately.

Tuition Waiver for Students Eligible for Free and Reduced Lunch
Academically qualified students who also are eligible for free or reduced lunch may enroll in CAP at no cost. When completing the student application, be sure to check the box  which states, "I qualify for free and reduced lunch." The waiver request will be verified with the school. If a student does not qualify for the tuition waiver, CAP staff will contact the family to verify that the application should be processed. Students who do not qualify will be billed the normal per credit hour fee.

Students taking a foreign language are given the opportunity to receive additional college credit at no charge. Click this link to view how CAP students can get up to 12 hours of language credit for the cost of one CAP course.
