Late Application Information Request Form

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).

Eligibility requirements are evaluated at the time of registration (Step 2)

If you are a junior or senior and meet at least one of the following requirements, you may enroll in CAPP:

  • Class rank in the top 25 percent
  • GPA of 3.25 or above (on a 4.0 scale)
  • ACT score of 24 or higher and at least one of the following:
    • class rank in the top 50 percent
    • GPA of 2.75 or above

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.

Instructors: If the student does not meet the minimum requirements view the Teacher & Liaison Sign-Off Policy below.

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).

Math Placement Information
