Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning (CAPP) – You may have heard your advisor or other students mention this. No it is not something to wear, but something to help you plan your academic path. CAPP stands for Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning and is available for student and faculty use.

CAPP is a program that allows both you and your advisor to track your academic progress towards degree completion. The CAPP program places the courses you have taken in the appropriate locations and shows what courses are still required to meet the degree requirements.

CAPP also allows you to run a “What if Analysis”. If after completing some courses you determine the major you chose is not for you, you can run the “What if Analysis” part of CAPP. This part of CAPP will take the courses you have completed and apply them to the appropriate places in a new degree program as well as showing the outstanding course requirements for the new degree.

As a student, you will long into your my.commnet.edu account and go to the Student Records link. Here you will find and click the “Student Degree Evaluations” link and follow these steps:

  1. Select the current term.
