Outside Evidence of Academic Proficiency

(Formerly IQ and Achievement Test Requirements)

Epsilon Camp requires a minimum of one item from one of the following four categories. If an applicant desires to submit more than one item, we will accept only one item from each category:

COMPREHENSIVE IQ TEST REPORT

For more information on accepted test results and benchmarks, see below.

or

Achievement Test Report

For more information on accepted test results and benchmarks, see below.

or

Professional Recommendation Letter

Letter from a qualified math professional, such as a Math Circle leader, math professor, math teacher, school principal, or math mentor that speaks to why Epsilon Camp would be a good fit for the applicant.

or

Math Competition Score

Math Kangaroo National Winner status or an official score report from AMC8 or AMC10.


For more information on accepted test results and benchmarks, see below.

If the applicant does not already have individually administered IQ or Achievement test reports, Epsilon Camp highly recommends against testing for the sole purpose of applying to Epsilon Camp.

The SCAT Test is not accepted by Epsilon Camp as an individually administered achievement test.
