CCAPS is for working professionals and other nontraditional students who want something more for their careers. As a non-freshman-admitting college, we focus on accepting those who have college credits before they apply.

If you are a current U of M student in another college, you can run a "what if" APAS report to see how your coursework meets your prospective CCAPS program's requirements.

If you're transferring from an institution outside of the U of M, you may be able to transfer credits taken at another school, including a community college.
