CAP - Community Auditing Program


Princeton University's Community Auditing Program (CAP) enables members of the community, ages 18 and above, to audit, or sit in on, University lectures on a non-credit basis for a nominal fee. On average, 200 classes are available each semester for auditing. No credit or certification is given for CAP classes. However, certified teachers currently working in New Jersey may obtain written certification for classes they have audited.

Technical Architecture

This system is a custom application written in a Microsoft ASP framework.

Who should request access

In order to register you must have an active account in our database. All accounts are activated upon a one-time, in-person verification of residence and age in our offices at 22 Chambers Street, Suite 101. A driver’s license is adequate documentation to verify both residency and age.

System Requirements

CAP works best in an up-to-date Firefox browser or Internet Explorer 8/9.

System Availability

CAP is generally available 24x7, except when courses are being loaded for the next registration or internal testing is being conducted.
