Center for Access & Postsecondary Success College Program

UConn's Center for Access and Postsecondary Success (CAPS) College Program jump-starts University life for students who are first-generation to college, from low-income families, and/or from underrepresented populations at the University who may need additional support making the transition from high school to college.

Students participate in a five-week summer session designed to prepare admitted students for the academic rigor at UConn. Two University courses are taken during this time, for which participants can earn up to seven UConn credits. Successful program completion is a requirement to continue as a first-year student in the fall.

CAPS is offered at all UConn campuses and continues throughout a student's college career by providing tutoring, advising, and mentoring resources in support of student success.
