Direct Enrollment without Placement Testing

Students no longer need to take a placement test.  Camp now uses an enrollment process called Direct Enrollment. Direct Enrollment allows students to determine for themselves whether they are ready for college courses in English and Math. 

I have graduated from high school.  What information will I need to provide?

  • Students who have graduated from high school in the past five years will be asked about:
    • year of graduation
    • high school GPA
    • and completion of Algebra 2, yes or no

I have been out of school more than five years. Do I still have to provide my high school information? What kinds of information do I have to provide?

  • Students who have graduated from high school six or more years do not have to provide any high school information. You will be shown pages with math problems and asked if this information is familiar to you, and if you think you can work on these types of math questions. You do not actually need to do the problems.  You  will also be shown a page with a writing assignment and asked if you think you can complete an assignment as shown. Placement is determined by how comfortable you feel with those kinds of assignments, and not on completing any test-type questions.
