Academic Support

The Center for Academic Progress

The Center for Academic Progress (CAP) helps prepare and support new students before registering for college coursework. All incoming students come through CAP to complete the required Accuplacer Preparation Workshop (APW).  Once the APW is complete, CAP staff review the scores and advise students on next steps. Students seeking to improve their skills after placement testing may enroll in one or more of the six CAP sponsored programs.  A description of the programs is listed below.

CAP and Foundations programs are only available for students with a High School Diploma and a completed HCC application.
