In a June 2021 special session, the Connecticut legislature passed Public Act 21-2, An Act Concerning Provisions Related to Revenue and Other Items to Implement the State Budget for the Biennium Ending June 30, 2023. Sections 257 and 258 set requirements for The Board of Regents for Higher Education (BOR) to establish the Connecticut Automatic Admission Program (CAAP) for eligible Connecticut high school students to be automatically admitted to Connecticut’s State Universities: Central Connecticut State University, Eastern Connecticut State University, Southern Connecticut State University, and Western Connecticut State University. The program is also open to other Connecticut post-secondary institutions.
The class of 2023 is the first class of students eligible for CAAP. Students who attend public and private secondary schools in Connecticut are eligible for CAAP.
Please visit the Connecticut Automatic Admissions Program (CAAP) webpage for details about CAAP and for links to the free streamlined applications for each participating school and contact information.
