Eligibility for CAP is determined according to a Two Tier system. Students must satisfy both tiers to be eligible for CAP. As CAP is a small program, space is limited and eligibility does not guarantee admission. CAP serves approximately 275 students annually.
Tier 1: To meet this requirement a student must demonstrate an academic need. This is defined as:
…having an ACT composite score less than or equal to 22* or
…being ranked in the bottom 60% of their high school class or
…possessing a General Education Diploma (GED)
* Having a SAT combined (math + verbal) score less than 1090 will constitute academic need if the student did not take the ACT.
If a student satisfies one of the Tier 1 requirements, s/he must also meet at least one of the Tier 2 requirements.
Tier 2: To satisfy this requirement a student must:
...be a first generation college student (neither parent graduated from a four-year school) or
...come from a family whose income meets federal standards for low income level or
...have a documented disability and be registered with the Ohio University Office of Disability Services.
