In partnership with Princeton Review, CAMP is offering an 8-week preparatory course to prepare students for the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). The GRE is a multiple-choice, computer-based, standardized exam that is often required for admission to graduate programs. GRE scores are determined by your performance in the following sections: 1 analytical writing assessment section, 2 verbal reasoning sections, and 2 quantitative reasoning sections. The quantitative reasoning and verbal reasoning sections are each scored on a scale of 130 to 170 while the analytical writing assessment is scored from 0 to 6 in half-point increments.
The call for applications takes place in the Fall. The classes are held during the Winter quarter. The class is typically in session three hours each week.
The course is free to admitted students (that are CAMP eligible)!
The course includes:
- 24 hours of in-person instruction
- 8 Computer practice exams
- Over 180 hours of online instruction
- 470+ drills and practice questions
- A GRE Book with study techniques and practice exams
Once you take the GRE exam, CAMP may be able to reimburse you for the GRE registration fee. All requests are reviewed on a first-come first-served basis, and reimbursement is contingent upon our budget. To be considered for the exam registration reimbursement, submit the GRE Exam Reimbursement Form.
