The following provides guidelines for CAP alignment for California community colleges.

To begin CAP alignment

  1. Review your current courses and revise or develop courses as needed to align.
  2. Contact the CAP team for support in completing and submitting the alignment documents. Contact information for the CAP Leads can be found under Technical Assistance.

Steps in CAP alignment

  1. The CAP team reviews the materials you submitted and makes a determination about alignment.
  2. If revisions are needed, you will be contacted by a member of the CAP team with specific information related to the requested revisions.
  3. If no revisions are needed, you will be notified of your successful alignment!

Helpful hints when submitting for alignment

  • If you are submitting for CAP Classic alignment, all 8 courses must be submitted at the same time. Information regarding your degree or certificate program must also be included.
  • If you are submitting for CAP Expansion alignment, you may submit any number of courses. No information regarding your degree or certificate is necessary.
  • Either an approved (local/state) Course Outline of Record (COR) or a draft/proposed COR may be submitted for initial alignment.
