Established in 1987 under the Connecticut Board of Governors for Higher Education, the Collegiate Awareness and Preparation Program (ConnCAP) was designed to increase the number of graduating high school students from disadvantaged backgrounds and prepare them with the necessary skills and motivation for success in college.

Over 2,200 students have participated in CCSU's ConnCAP program, which has an average program retention rate of 90% and a college-going rate well above the national average.
