Parent & Former Student Perspective
Students who have completed the regular secondary school curriculum through the
tenth grade and are entering their junior or senior year of high school are
eligible for CAP enrollment.
They must have a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale
and must be enrolled in a CAP course offered at one of the participating high schools.
However, students seeking enrollment
in Math 111 or 112, foreign language (French, German, Latin, Spanish) or English
101 must meet other requirements, in addition to the 2.5 GPA.
Math students must exhibit competency via an Internet
placement exam prior to the enrollment deadline.
World language students must have at least a B average in prior years of the language or exhibit competency via USI's online placement exam. Click this link to view how CAP students can get up to 12 hours of language credit.
English 101 students must meet two of the following three criteria:
Rank at or above the 51st percentile in the high school
class (For example, multiply
the number of students in the class by .49 [100 x .49 = 49] which gives you the minimum required rank to qualify for English 101.)
SAT Critical Reading score of 450 or greater; PSAT
Critical Reading (juniors) of 45 or greater
(or ACT Reading score of 19 or greater).
SAT Writing score of 450 or greater; PSAT Writing
(juniors) of 45 or greater (or ACT Combined English/Writing
score of 19 or greater)
students must meet BOTH requirements
for English 101 and Math enrollment, or have successfully completed the courses
prior to enrollment.
Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities who meet the eligibility standards described above are invited and encouraged to enroll in CAP. Your high school retains the responsibility for providing and coordinating any accommodations or services as described in your current IEP, 504 Plan, or similar educational plan. However, the disability-rights laws that apply to colleges and universities are significantly different from the special education laws that apply to your high school, and all of the accommodation that you are currently receiving may not necessarily be appropriate or legally required for a college-level class. To avoid any potential barriers to your ability to earn full college credit for your participation in CAP, you are encouraged to contact your high school's special education service provider, case conference committee, or similar entity about making any necessary modifications to your current educational plan before you enter CAP. To learn more about the differences between high school and college, take a moment to review the U.S. Department of Education's publication "Students with Disabilities Preparing for Postsecondary Education: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities".
