Student Support Programs

Chemeketa's College Access Programs (CAP) help you understand the college systems, build community, access resources, and succeed in pursuing your academic and career goals.

Welcome to College Access Programs


A jigsaw puzzle with the names of the College Access Programs

College Access Programs (CAP) aim to ensure that  students of all backgrounds have equal access to opportunities. In addition to academic advising, as a student participant in CAP, you are connected to a Success Coach who will guide you through the college systems, connect you to financial and academic resources, and provide you with customized one-on-one support to meet your needs to graduate, transfer to a university, and meet your career goals. We walk with you every step of the way.

CAP also offers various free services that can help save you money while reaching your goal.

CAP programs consists of CAMP, CCP and TRIO. Learn more about them below.
