WELCOME!

The College Access Program (CAP) is a 3-week pre-college program that is open to first-generation college-bound students and/or underrepresented students from low-income families. Participants will live on campus and take classes to enrich their skills in math, writing, and test-taking strategies.

Additionally, students will participate in workshops relating to scholarships, college admission requirements, financial aid, and cultural activities. Students will leave the program with a wealth of knowledge from a world-class research institution and develop a life-long network of supportive staff and faculty members from UW-Madison. The 2019 CAP program will run from July 7 – July 27.
