Complete the following steps in any order. 

  1. RESEARCH Which Courses Will Benefit You
    Review the courses available at each high school
    Check that you meet USI's course prerequisites
    Watch this video to learn how to research course utility both at USI and elsewhere (2020, 16:03)
    Optional: sample classroom presentation for students (2019, 13:08)

  2. APPLY to CAP
    Create an account and complete a CAP application ONE TIME ONLY by clicking the red "Apply to CAP" box on this page. A screenshot guide is available here (revised 9/14/20).
    If you have enrolled in and completed a CAP course before, go to Step 3!

  3. REQUEST Your CAP Courses; TURN IN Permission Form by the Deadline
    Write the course(s) on the permission form; both a parent/guardian and you must sign it. You must complete all steps by the deadline to be eligible for USI dual credit.
    Forms should be signed and returned to your high school BY THE SCHOOL'S INTERNAL DEADLINE, which is typically about a week prior to the CAP enrollment deadline. If necessary due to quarantine, signed forms can be submitted to the CAP instructor or counselor as a PDF file.

  4. PAY BILL
    Bills for fall courses will be mailed home mid-September with full payment due October 25.
    Bills for spring courses will be mailed home mid-February with full payment due March 25.
    Bills also will be sent to the USI eagles email account on or after the 10th of each month.

YOU ARE NOT SUCCESSFULLY ENROLLED IN CAP UNLESS ALL STEPS ARE COMPLETE AND SIGNED FORM IS RETURNED TO THE CAP OFFICE BY THE POSTED DEADLINE. ACCEPTANCE TO CAP IS CONTINGENT UPON QUALIFYING GPA AND QUALIFYING PRE-REQUISITES (WHEN APPLICABLE).
