Successful completion of the CCACP requires a cumulative GPA on all course work of a 3.0 (based on a 4.0 scale). Cumulative time to completion is normally 5 quarters. All required courses must be completed within a four year time period. There are no exit examinations required, and no final project. However, there are numerous projects and assignments required in the various courses that give an opportunity for the student to apply their knowledge to broad problems.
