Special Study Options
STEM Boot Camp
Before classes start in August, this week-long residential camp welcomes incoming students with lab experiences, exam preparation, and lectures by Mason faculty. Students attend advising and career sessions, while working and living with other Mason STEM accepted freshmen. The Boot Camp has two available tracks: biology/chemistry and math/physical sciences/engineering. Note that these tracks are appropriate for all science, math, and engineering majors, not just those in biology, chemistry, or mathematics.
Math Readiness Camp
The College of Science's Math Readiness Camp is for students who want to place into a specific math course such as CALC I, or a higher math course than the one they tested into during orientation.
