Getting Started

The first step for entry into the corrections program is the completion of the CORE Program application. From receipt of the application, the CORE program supervisor will direct you on the next steps required to become fully enrolled in the program which includes taking the college’s free placement tests and meeting with Chemeketa’s Advising and First Year Programs staff.

The CORE program supervisor will be your primary advisor as you work through the degree requirements.
