ICAP - Individual Academic Career Planning

What is an Individual Career Academic Plan (ICAP)?

The term ICAP refers to both a process that helps students engage in academic and career development activities and a product that is created and maintained for students’ academic, career, and personal advancement.

ICAP is a student-driven, ongoing process that actively engages students, enabling them to:

  • Understand their own interests, strengths, values, and learning styles

  • Create a vision of their future

  • Develop individual goals

  • Prepare a personal plan for achieving their vision and goals
