The Lenape Regional High School District, in partnership with Rowan College at Burlington County College (RCBC) through a College Accelerated Program (CAP), offers students taking select courses an opportunity to earn both high school and college credit. Your student is enrolled in at least one course which qualifies as a RCBC CAP course. Click here for a list of RCBC CAP courses.
Students selecting to take CAP courses have the opportunity to earn high school credit, as well as RCBC credit. These courses are taught during the regular school day by members of the Lenape Regional High School District staff, who are also certified as RCBC adjunct professors. Students who would like to receive college credits will be required to complete the RCBC registration process and pay RCBC tuition.
Here are a few facts to consider when deciding to register for RCBC CAP college credit:
- Each CAP class is only $150 (this includes all 3- or 4-credit college courses).
a. Some LRHSD courses are equivalent to two CAP courses; therefore, tuition is
$300 (e.g. Television Broadcasting Technology II is RCBC ETV 101 and ETV 105, 7 credits, $300).
b. No other additional fees (textbooks, lab or activity fees) will be collected.
- Many colleges, both in-state and out-of-state, accept credit earned through a CAP program.
- CAP is not intended to replace the Advanced Placement program (although a student choosing not to test for AP credit could earn RCBC CAP credit if applicable).
- Students should sign up for CAP credit if they have a reasonable expectation of earning a “C” or better in the course. RCBC will only grant credit if the student earns a “C” or better.
- Students may only register for courses they are currently taking this school year.
- Registration is final; payment for CAP classes is non-refundable once the funds are sent from the school to RCBC. Additionally, RCBC will not refund students who drop a RCBC CAP course, get a grade lower than "C" in a RCBC 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.
RCBC will submit a final transcript, upon request, to any higher education institution.
