USI College Achievement Program

The College Achievement Program (CAP) is a cooperative program between the University of Southern Indiana (USI) 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 USI courses, following the same curriculum and academic standards as on-campus sections.
