Rowan University
College Accelerated Program

The Lenape Regional High School District has recently partnered with Rowan University through a College Accelerated Program (CAP) which offers students taking Latin II Honors, Latin III Honors, Russian II Honors, Russian III Honors, and/or AP Russian Honors an opportunity to earn both high school and college credit. Your student is enrolled in at least one course which qualifies as a Rowan CAP course.

Please note: This first-time opportunity for Russian CAP credit became available on Dec. 22, 2016. The registration deadline for Russian CAP is Jan. 11th, 2017. Information is being distributed to students in their Russian classes before Winter Break.

Students selecting to take CAP courses have the opportunity to earn high school credit, as well as Rowan University credit. These courses are taught during the regular school day by members of the Lenape Regional High School District staff. Students who would like to receive college credits will be required to complete the Rowan University registration process and pay Rowan tuition. 


Here are a few facts to consider when deciding to register for Rowan University CAP credit:

  1. Each CAP class is only $150. 
          a.   No other additional fees (textbooks or activity fees) will be collected. 
  2. Many colleges, both in-state and out-of-state, accept credit earned through a CAP program.
  3. CAP is not intended to replace the Advanced Placement program (although a student choosing not to test for AP credit could earn Rowan CAP credit if applicable). 
  4. Students should sign up for CAP credit if they have a reasonable expectation of earning a “C” or better in the course. Rowan will only grant credit if the student earns a “C” or better.
  5. Students may only register for courses they are currently taking this school year. 
  6. Registration is final; payment for CAP classes is non-refundable. Additionally, Rowan will not refund students who drop a Rowan CAP course, get a grade lower than "C" in a Rowan CAP course, or if a college does not accept CAP credit.

It is recommended you research the policies of colleges you are considering and find out if your CAP credit will transfer.
