That would depend on the model of Access Point you are using. Do you have a specific model in mind? Would also help of you are trying to do one or the other (controller and controller-less) full time, ior if you are trying to go from one to the other (ala Remote AP, etc).

If you wanted to get a controllerless ap you would need the instant version, in this case the IAP-115. The instant versions can operate in 3 modes that serve clients - Instant, Campus, and Remote. The additional one, instant, allows one access point to act as the virtual controller and keep a unified config for all access points in the cluster (one cluster per vlan). The access point can also be converted into the other 2 modes discussed above.
A campus access point (AP-x) can never be converted to instant, but an instant access point (IAP-x) can always be converted between all 3 modes.
