Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination

The Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination indicates a level of achievement that may qualify a student for advanced standing. Credit is awarded for CAPE if certain requirements are met. Credit awarded by another college or university for CAPE is not transferable without proper documentation. Official CAPE scores must be submitted to the office of admission. Credit is awarded on a selective basis. A maximum of 45 quarter hours of CAPE credit may be awarded. Transfer credit from all sources (including CAPE) may not exceed 90 quarter hours.
