Are you a student who wants to earn college credits while you're still in high school? 

RCBC’s College Acceleration Program (CAP) allows students the opportunity to receive college credit while simultaneously completing their high school course work. These courses are taught at the high school by certified teachers who have been approved as Rowan College at Burlington County adjunct faculty members.

CAP courses can vary by high school. Students who are interested in participating should speak with their school counselor for more information. Registration for eligible CAP courses needs to be completed while the student is taking the course and by the registration deadline established for that semester.

CAP courses are equal to RCBC credits. Students will receive a Rowan College at Burlington County transcript with the grade they received in the class if they earn a “C” or higher. RCBC CAP courses are transferable to many four year institutions.*

*Students interested in transferring credits to another four year institution should speak to the admissions or transfer offices at those schools prior to enrolling to ensure transferability.

What courses are offered?

Any RCBC course may become a CAP course. CAP courses already offered in area high schools include: English, General Psychology, Spanish, World History, Chemistry and Statistics.

Who teaches CAP courses?

CAP 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.

How do students enroll in CAP?

Register online for an account at DualEnroll is the software that the college uses for all high school enrollments and allows you to select your classes, get permissions from your parent/guardian and guidance counselor, and pay for your classes, all in one place.

What are the advantages for CAP students?
  • CAP provides students with broader, more challenging course offerings.
  • Upon course completion, students receive an official RCBC transcript.
  • CAP 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.
  • RCBC'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 CAP students complete their degree at RCBC following high school graduation?

While many students choose to attend RCBC following high school graduation, it is not a requirement of the CAP program. CAP students earn a RCBC college transcript which may be submitted for transfer to any college or university. Colleges and universities have final determination on which credits are transferrable.
