Student Success at CAPS

The School of Continuing & Professional Studies (CAPS) recognizes the rich array of backgrounds and experiences adult learners bring to the classroom and is aware that adults entering or returning to higher education may need academic counseling, guidance, and special services. Our Student Success Navigators go the extra mile to help you navigate your path and needs. We will provide you with the tools to make each moment spent on your education as valuable as possible.

Students who have been admitted to degree or certificate programs should consult with their Student Success Navigator annually for program planning and approval. It is the student’s responsibility to arrange these conferences.

Transcript Evaluation

CAPS welcomes transfer students. Prospective and current students who have studied at another college or university may request a free transcript evaluation by a recruiter to determine transfer credit and remaining course requirements toward a CAPS degree or certificate. Official transcripts must be obtained from each school attended, and all records must be in English. Applicants for admission to a degree or certificate program should arrange for an evaluation prior to or immediately after applying for degree or certificate candidacy.

Community College Transfer Counseling
Community college students are encouraged to consult a recruiter to learn about transferring their community college credits to CAPS.
