Who Teaches C.A.P. Courses?
 C.A.P. courses are taught by qualified high school teachers approved as RCBC adjuncts. RCBC administrators and faculty review course syllabi, textbooks, and learning outcomes for appropriateness.
 
What are the Advantages for C.A.P. Students?
  • C.A.P. provides students with broader, more challenging course offerings.
  • Upon course completion, students receive an official Rowan College at Burlington County transcript.
  • C.A.P. students demonstrate proficiency at college level work -- an asset in the college admissions process whether or not the students intend to continue their studies at RCBC after high school graduation.
  • Students graduate with a high school diploma and a college transcript. Since RCBC's credits are accepted at colleges and universities across the country, students have presented their transcripts and earned credits or advanced standing, upon starting college.
  • Rowan College at Burlington County's affordable tuition and fees can represent a substantial cost savings, particularly if students are transferring their credits into much more expensive four-year colleges and universities.
Must C.A.P. Students Complete their Degree at RCBC Following High School Graduation?
While many students choose to attend BCC following high school graduation, it is not a requirement of the C.A.P. program. C.A.P. students earn a RCBC college transcript which may be submitted for transfer to any college or university. 

How Do Students Enroll in C.A.P.?
Qualified high school students complete a special BCC Application for High School students. Return the Application for High School students along with your check made out to “Rowan College at Burlington County” to Roe Hill in the Counseling Office by Monday October 16.  Students who do not meet this deadline will be ineligible for the CAP program and RCBC credits.

What else do I need to do? Earn a “C” or better in the course. The Counseling Office will automatically send your grade to RCBC at the end of the year.
