The Testing Center has changed in its testing offerings due to policy changes and pandemic requirements.
Policy Changes: Placement Testing and Graduation Exams
Placement tests are no longer needed for enrollment in the college. Direct Enrollment is a new policy change in how Camp enrolls students. With Direct Enrollment future students may enroll themselves.
Future students who have graduated from high school in the past five years can in that link self-report the following to determine their course placement:
- year of graduation
- Algebra 2, yes or no
Future students who have graduated from high school six or more years ago may wish to follow the pathways in the link or they may want some assistance with an onboarding Advisor from our Admissions Office. The following onboarding Advisors can help any future student enroll over the phone:
- Elaine Beale 757-569-6733 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Carrie Hoeft – 757-659-6768 or email@example.com
- Dan Rollins – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Allied Health programs, Tasha Taylor - 757-569-6779 or email@example.com
For more complete information about the new Direct Enrollment policy see the FAQs below.
Graduating exams are no longer being given as part of a new policy. Rather, the college is putting in place core competencies within the courses that will provide the institutional research needed to assure our students are reaching a community college education level of competency. Therefore, the graduating student will no longer need to make an appointment before graduation to take the core competency graduation exam. This assessment will be inherent in the courses in which they have been enrolled.
The Testing Center is limited in its testing offerings currently under the pandemic. Students enrolled in NVCC requiring online proctoring will be required to use Respondus Monitor, an at home proctoring arrangement in Canvas administered by their professor. This policy of proctoring is determined by NVCC. Exceptions have to be documented with NVCC and the professor if there is a need to be proctored by a local community college. In those situations, the Camp Community College will work with the student and NVCC to deliver proctoring.
Other VCCS colleges and other colleges may have limited availability to proctoring by contacting the Test Administer, Ms. Gleason, at 757-569-6740 for the Franklin campus or Computing Lab Specialist, James Jenkins, at 757-925-63 on the Suffolk campus.
Requirements for entering the lab will be daytime only arrangements on the Franklin and Suffolk campuses. All students must enter the testing lab with a face mask. Hand sanitizers are positioned at the door. Once a tester enters the testing lab, they will be given a keyboard cover. Seated positioning for testing is an eight (8) foot distance between testers.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Direct Enrollment?

What do I need to do to begin the Direct Enrollment process?
- The first step is to apply to CAMP Community College. Once you have completed the application process, you will be given a 7-digit number.
The 7-digit number is your personal college ID number. That student ID number will be the number you will use after you graduate to access college transcripts for future employers. So, it is a valuable number for you and your future.
What if I finish the application process and I do not see a 7-digit number?
- A problem has occurred in your application process. You need to contact Mrs. Worth or Mrs. Ferguson at their emails listed above. They will resolve the problem and help you complete the application process.
