The Cooperative Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh (www.uwosh.edu/capp/ ) provides academically able high school juniors and seniors with a GPA of 3.25 or higher the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school. 
 
Students who register and successfully complete courses offered through CAPP earn University of Oshkosh credit, verified by an official transcript. Note: All dual credit options are dependent upon appropriate teacher certification and may change with changes in staffing. 
 
While there have been several changes to the funding of this dual credit program over the past several years, CAPP courses are currently tuition based and parents are responsible for this tuition. This year, tuition was $90 per college credit and courses range from 1 to 5 college credits. 2016-17 rates are anticipated to increase slightly.  This remains a substantial tuition reduction from on campus tuition. CAPP tuition is set by the UW-system and is subject to change. Students who qualify for Federal Free/Reduced lunch are eligible for a fee waiver.
