The Center for Academic Progress
The Center for Academic Progress (CAP) is a learning center for new students. Students can visit the CAP before placement testing to practice and prepare for the test. After placement testing, students can enroll in CAP refresher programs to review and earn an opportunity to retake the placement test. Once enrolled, students in intensive courses can visit the CAP for homework or required tutoring. See Center Services below for more information or call (203) 332-8585.
CAP Refresher and Foundations programs are only available for students with a High School Diploma and a completed HCC application.
Accuplacer Practice Test and Review Sessions are available in the CAP during the hours listed below. Walk in or make an appointment with CAP staff in Room A209 for English or A227 for Math. The practice test and review sessions cover topics that are tested in the Accuplacer placement test.
Refresher Programs – Jumpstart, iEnglish, and iMath are intensive, computer-based programs for new students who have taken the Accuplacer placement test, placed into pre-college level courses, and want an opportunity to refresh and build skills then retake the test. Students who successfully complete these free courses are given the opportunity to retake the corresponding section of the Accuplacer placement test in order to save time and money.
Tutoring and Workspace for Intensive Courses – Students in English 092i (Reading), English 094i (Writing), and Math 095i have access to the CAP. All tutoring for these classes happens in the CAP and students can also use the rooms and computers for homework. Appointments are encouraged but not required.
