What is #CAP and Why?

#CAP is a step-by-step approach to facilitate college admission

from researching various institutions and submitting applications
through the completion of the enrollment process.

 

Chapters are charged with assisting students in completing

college applications, preparing for the ACT and SAT, writing
compelling personal statements, identifying scholarships and other
financial aid, and compiling a portfolio to track college admission
results.

Through #CAP, Alpha Kappa Alpha will improve the trajectory of

the lives of talented young people by increasing their potential for
success and laying the foundation for positive, productive, and
fulfilling lives.
