Chemeketa Scholars Steps to Apply

Step 1

All Applicants
  1. Complete Chemeketa's admission application
    Make sure you indicate enrollment for fall 2019. You will receive information about your Chemeketa student identification number via email 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 assessment in reading, writing and math or submit your 11th grade Smarter Balanced test scores
    You can take the placement assessment after receiving your K number. We recommend you take the assessment soon to ensure you obtain the minimum scores required for eligibility. If needed, you can retake the assessment 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. If you have completed Chemeketa college credit classes in high school, you still must have placement scores for reading, writing and math.

    Depending on your Smarter Balanced (SBAC) score, you may be exempt from taking Chemeketa’s placement assessment. Students need to bring a copy of their SBAC scores to any Chemeketa testing center to make their placement official. This must be done prior to submitting your Chemeketa Scholars application packet. Click here to learn more about SBAC
