Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and campus restrictions, CAP students may only enroll in Virtual or 100% online courses for the Spring 2021 semester. Please contact Early College Programs if you need help finding a course.
SUNY Potsdam is proud to offer CAP (the College Advancement Program) for qualified high school juniors and seniors who would like to enroll in regularly-scheduled lower level credit courses on the Potsdam campus. Upon successful completion of a CAP course, students will receive academic credit from SUNY Potsdam. These credits will form the basis of a permanent post-secondary academic record at SUNY Potsdam. Credits earned through SUNY Potsdam may be eligible for transfer to other colleges and universities.
Students are advised to contact the Admissions Office of the institutions they are particularly interested in attending to inquire about the transfer of SUNY Potsdam credits prior to enrolling in a CAP course.
The decision to accept transfer credit from SUNY Potsdam is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

- Minimum of 85.0 grade point average in a Regents/College preparatory curriculum as indicated on an official high school transcript.
- Letter of recommendation from the high school principal or a guidance counselor. (This is also required for home schooled students)
