Connecticut Credit Assessment Program (CCAP)

Through the CCAP program, education and training offered in business or industry can be evaluated for possible credit by faculty from colleges and universities in Connecticut, under the auspices of Charter Oak State College and at the request of the sponsoring organization. Credit recommendations are based on faculty team reviews of course materials and instruction, not on contact hours alone. Assessments have been completed on medical and health programs, computer training; civil service training, and more.

Getting your organization's training reviewed for college credit via CCAP

Corporations, proprietary schools, and volunteer and community organizations & agencies may request review of their programs of instruction or courses of study through the Connecticut Credit Assessment Program (CCAP).

Are your organization's courses or training programs eligible for CCAP review? See our self-evaluation checklist.

Policies and procedures for CCAP review are available upon request.

For further information, contact Linda Wilder, Prior Learning Assessment Coordinator at (860) 515-3862 or

Students: Getting college credit for other training NOT reviewed by CCAP

Students who wish to obtain credit based on knowledge they have gained through training programs should consider Charter Oak's Credential Evaluation or Prior Learning Portfolio programs.
