College Accelerated Preparatory Program (CAPP):

The College Accelerated Preparatory Program (CAPP) is a special admissions program for selected students who do not meet current “college level” admissions requirements but who still show the potential to succeed in college.

Admission into CAPP:

New Students entering ASCC with Placement Testing results or scores from the SAT or TOEFL or ACT indicating their English and Math scores are within the developmental English and Math will be placed in College Accelerated Preparatory Program (CAPP). Upon successful completion of required CAPP courses the student can exit the program and will be classified as in-coming ASCC Freshman college level student.

A CAPP student is allowed a certain time period to successfully complete and exit from the program. If the student is not able to complete the program within the required timeframe, they are placed on Academic suspension until the following semester where the student may be readmitted into the program. The CAPP Director has the final decision for the Admission into the program.
