Read these instructions carefully

Step 1

All applicants

  1. Complete Chemeketa's admission application
    Make sure you indicate enrollment for fall 2015. You will receive information about your Chemeketa student identification number via e-mail after completing the admission application. Even if you have previously taken Chemeketa courses or you are enrolled in College Credit Now, you must complete the admission application. You cannot proceed with the next step until this is completed.
  2. Complete Chemeketa's placement test in reading, writing and math
    You can take the placement test after receiving your K number. We recommend you take the test soon to ensure you obtain the minimum scores required for eligibility. If needed, you can retake the test for a $15 fee. We also encourage you to review test taking tips. You will need to submit a copy of your printed scores as part of the Scholars application process. We encourage you to complete your placement test by the end of February so you have sufficient time to retest, if needed. If you have completed Chemeketa college credit classes in high school, you still must have placement scores for reading, writing and math.
