Cooperative Academic Partnership Program (CAPP)

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. Note: All dual credit options are dependent on teacher certification and may change with changes in staffing. 
 
Students who register and successfully complete courses offered through CAPP earn University of Oshkosh credit, verified by an official transcript. MHS does not guarantee that credits will transfer to any other college or university, but UW-OshKosh does have a lot of information on how/whether credits will transfer to various schools on their website.
 
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 is $100 per college credit and courses range from 1 to 5 college credits.  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.
 
Eligibility Requirements
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
Don't meet the minimum requirements?
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.
