Take the First Steps Towards your Bachelors Degree
First Apply (Step 1)
Step 1: Apply Online to UW Oshkosh (Admission Application)
Application Instructions - Fall application Due July 31st, spring application due Dec 20
You must submit a new CAPP application for each academic year that you will participate.
You should be able to answer most everything on the application, but here is some information you may need to gather in advance:
- Your Social Security Number
- Parent information for residency such as:
- Did your legal guardian file income taxes last year?
- Was Wisconsin the last place that your legal guardian registered to vote or voted?
- Does your legal guardian hold a valid Wisconsin’s driver’s license?
Because a college application can be unfamiliar territory for many high school students, we highly recommend that you track through our instructions each time you apply.
What if I submit my application late? (After the deadlines)
If you submit your application after July 31, you will be delayed in receiving the information necessary for registration. We will do our best to send out this information regularly, but you may be waiting up to a week after you submit your application.
When should I expect to hear more information?
The application process is free and you will have no obligation to take a CAPP course. Completing the admission application is required prior to registering for your CAPP courses.
- You must complete a new admission application for each academic year you take CAPP courses. You cannot be enrolled in CAPP courses for the current year unless you have submitted an application for the current year.
- ALL STUDENTS must complete the application every year, even if they have taken CAPP courses in the past.
- The admission application DOES NOT enroll you in classes. You must also register (see Step 2: Register on the right).
Math Placement Information
Math Placement Exam
All students are required to take the UW System Math Placement exam prior to their first college math course (CAPP included).
As of Fall 2021, the minimum placement/prerequisite scores for Math courses are as follows:
|Course||Math Fundamentals||Advanced Algebra||Trigonometry/ Analytic Geometry||Alternate Prerequisite|
|Math 108||466||150||150||Math 103 (C grade or higher) or equivalent|
|Math 171||466||536||556||Math 108 (C grade or higher) or equivalent|
|Math 172||–||–||–||Math 171 (C grade or higher), or score 3 or higher on AP Calc AB Exam|
|Math 273||–||–||–||Math 172 (C grade or higher) or score 4 or 5 on the AP Calc BC Exam|
All placement testing is now online. Each school must send a list of the names of students needing to take the placement exams. Those same students are responsible for completing the UWO CAPP admission application (instructions above). Signing in to take the placement exam requires your NetID log in, which is generated after you have applied. Once students apply and the school has sent a list of names, students will be individually emailed with information on how to sign in to the exam.

Eligibility requirements are evaluated at the time of registration (Step 2)
If you are a high school student and meet at least one of the following requirements, you may enroll in CAPP:
- Class rank in the top 30 percent
- GPA of 2.75 or above (on a 4.0 scale)
If a student is exceptional in a certain area in which he or she desires to take a CAPP course, but this student does not meet the above criteria, he or she may be allowed to enroll. Students should contact their instructor for additional information.

Teacher and Liaison Sign-Off Policy
If a student wishing to enroll in a CAPP course does not meet the requirements for enrollment (found here), then the CAPP adjunct must complete a recommendation form justifying the student’s placement in the CAPP course.
Adjunct Teacher recommendations to enroll a student should be considered only when a student is exceptional in a certain area of study, yet overall does not meet the current guidelines for CAPP participation.
In order to recommend a student for a CAPP course who otherwise does not meet the requirements for CAPP participation follow these steps:
- Student submits the online registration form.
- Adjunct teacher, while entering the eligibility information on the student’s registration form, will also write their recommendation to their liaison in the Notes box provided.
Credit Overload Policy
CAPP students can take no more than 15 credits in a semester per UW Oshkosh policy (full year course credits count towards fall and spring semester credit loads). Credit Overload Forms must be submitted by the student and approved by the high school guidance counselor and CAPP Director for taking more than 15 credits (apx. 4 courses).
