Students should investigate whether a course will fit into their academic course map before signing up for a CAP course. There are several tools available to look into course utility.
In addition to speaking with the advising center for each academic college, students should also investigate online course checksheets for any prospective majors/programs.
USI bound students will be required to complete the Core 39 general education requirement list. The Core 39 CAP pdf shows which CAP courses satisfy a Core 39 requirement. Note that most majors want students to take certain courses to fulfill a Core 39 requirement to better transition them to major coursework. To see how certain USI CAP courses fit into USI degree programs, visit bulletin.usi.edu.
At top left, select "Programs" from drop-down box.
Type the course into the search box, just below the drop-down box that reads "Programs."
IMPORTANT: You need to use the USI course abbreviation: BIOL 105 instead of Biology 105; ENG 105 instead of English 105.
Click the magnifying glass to search.
The results will allow you to look through the various majors and minors that course fits into. Click the results to view the required and elective courses for each major.
For CAP student who plans to attend USI, use DegreeWorks to investigate how your USI dual credits affect degree completion requirements in different programs. DegreeWorks can be found by logging in to MyUSI with your student log in information.
Students interested in enrolling in dual credit courses, but unsure how they might fit into their future college plan can visit the University Division website, and are encouraged to call and speak to someone in that area before registering for a USI CAP course.
