After the pretest, individualized Prep and Learning Modules are available for students to refresh their knowledge on forgotten topics and learn new topics with the guided assistance from two of Whatcom’s Math Instructors. After the camps, students then have the opportunity to reassess and improve their placement during the post-placement.

*The camp is designed for students who have placed in Math 87/97 or below, are Pell grant eligible, and have not completed a WCC math course 87 or higher. The camp and the post-placement exam are ABSOLUTELY FREE.
