What is CAPP?
Curriculum, Advising and Program Planning (CAPP) degree evaluation is an advising tool used by both students and advisers to evaluate coursework against degree requirements. CAPP produces a report reflecting academic progress toward completion of a degree. The CAPP degree evaluation report shows how NMU courses, transfer courses and courses in progress apply toward degree requirements.
- CAPP degree evaluations are not official unless they are run and reviewed by the Registrar’s Office and have “Official Degree Evaluation” stated at the top. Official evaluations are run after students have completed the minimum credits required [bachelor's - 87, associate's - 32, certificate - 16]. Evaluations run by students and advisers are intended to be used as an informal planning tool only.
- CAPP will only include credits earned from fall 1993 to present.
- CAPP has only been written for programs from fall 2004 to present. It can be run for students under bulletins earlier than 2004, but the evaluation will be based on requirements from 2004 to present.
Not all academic programs have been set up in CAPP. If you try to run CAPP and are unable to generate a report, it is likely your program is not available. The following programs are not available on CAPP:
- any student admitted as a post-baccalaureate (until individualized evaluation is created by Degree Evaluation staff)
- pre-professional (pre-med, pre-pharmacy, pre-vet, etc.)
- general university studies associate degree without a declared concentration
- majors/minors no longer offered or suspended by NMU
- new majors/minors not yet added to CAPP
Prior to running a CAPP degree evaluation, we recommend you visit the Guide to Interpreting CAPP Degree Evaluations. It may be helpful to print this guide and reference it while reviewing your degree evaluation.
