The University of Southern Indiana’s College Achievement Program (CAP) offers concurrent credit to outstanding junior and senior students in more than two dozen area high schools. Through CAP, students meet high school graduation requirements and earn college credits, all while in their high school classroom during the regular school day. CAP courses are taught by high school instructors who meet the same criteria as USI adjunct faculty, and more than 40 courses in English, history, biology, chemistry, economics, foreign language, health professions,
journalism, and math are available. Many of the CAP courses transfer easily utilizing the Indiana Core Transfer Library (CTL). More than half of CAP courses are on the dual credit priority list, cost $25/credit hour, and fulfill the new state standards for the Academic Honors Diploma. The College Achievement Program is one of only five concurrent enrollment programs in Indiana accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) and one of 80+ accredited programs in the nation.
