On the last day of Math Camp, each student will be given the opportunity to take a placement exam. Success on this exam guarantees the student a reserved seat in their first required math class.
The colleges and majors listed below require the minimum completion of Math 123 (Finite Mathematics), Math 125 (Basic Calculus), or Math 141 (Calculus I). Some have additional higher math requirements. Math Camp is designed to help prepare you to pass the math placement exam by demonstrating your preparedness to begin in one of these courses.

Students may wish to retake the SAT or ACT to try to improve their math score. A more recent ACT or SAT test that shows the necessary math score (ACT 25, SAT 590) should be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to document that the student has achieved the required level of proficiency to take the first math class required by his/her major.
Remember, there is a limited time to retake the SAT or ACT. The last SAT exam is June 3rd (registration deadline is May 9th) and the last ACT exam is June 10th (registration deadline is May 5th).
