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. To ensure a spot in their first required math class, students must speak with an Academic Advisor following the exam. All open math class seats will be released at the end of camp, so students must ensure that they revise their schedule prior to the end of camp.
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 Math 130.

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 their major.
Remember, there is a limited time to retake the SAT or ACT. The last SAT exam is June 6th (registration deadline is May 8th) and the last ACT exam is July 18th (registration deadline is June 19th).
