Applying to CAP 

To initiate the application process to the College Assistance Program (CAP), prospective students must apply separately to both Iona College and to CAP.

The deadline to submit an application to CAP is May 1 for the Fall semester. Applicants who have been admitted to the College and have submitted all necessary application materials and supporting documentation will be among the first group considered. Due to the limited number of spaces offered in the program, we highly encourage that you submit your CAP application at the same time as your Iona College application.

All students who are interested in applying to the program must submit:

  1. A completed CAP Application (see below).
  2. A recent psychoeducational or neuropsychological report. It must include the following:
    • Cognitive Testing: The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) is the most acceptable form of testing.
    • Achievement Testing: A full scale IQ Report with scores and interpretation. The Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement (WJ-IV) or the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT).
    • All testing MUST include the testing procedures followed, the instruments used to assess the disability, the test results and written interpretation of the test results
  3. Two comprehensive letters of recommendation from a high school counselor or resource room teacher/classroom teacher (see below).
  4. Documentation of an IEP or 504 (if applicable)
  5. AD/HD Verification Form (if applicable, see below)
  6. Official high school attendance report
  7. SAT or ACT scores (optional)
  8. High school transcript(s) (up to 11th grade)

Students who are currently enrolled at Iona who would like to apply to CAP must submit all documents except high school transcript and letters of recommendation.

After a completed application has been received, the CAP Admissions Committee will review the materials and invite the most qualified candidates for an interview. Students who are invited for an interview are usually notified of the Committee’s decision no later than two weeks after being interviewed.
