The goal of Chemistry Camp is to help participants prepare for the Chemistry Placement Test. Successful completion of the placement exam will allow students to enroll in General Chemistry I, helping them complete their degree in a timely manner. Historically, 68% of Chemistry Camp participants, who completed the program, placed into General Chemistry I.
Each Chemistry Camp session is three days, generally occurring on Wednesday-Friday. During these sessions, participants have the opportunity to review basic Chemistry material with a UTSA professor and experienced upperclassman tutors. As part of the third day, participants have the opportunity to take the Chemistry Placement exam.
Deadline to register is 1 week prior to Camp date or when session is full.

Students are allowed to take the Chemistry Placement exam only once every two years so it is important that students are as prepared as possible to do their best on the first attempt. Participants will use one attempt during the program.
