All applicants must complete pre-admission assessment of language and mathematics skills unless specifically exempted. This assessment does not affect admissibility to a program, but is only for purposes of providing advisory information to applicants about their levels of academic skills in relation to the demands of the program to which they are applying. The results are intended to help applicants in their course planning; to allow them to make informed decisions regarding their readiness for enrolment; to improve student success in our courses and/or programs, and to reduce attrition due to lack of adequate skills. Registration will not be deemed to be complete until such assessment has been done.

Exemptions will be granted to students who have already completed relevant post-secondary courses in mathematics and/or English. To obtain an exemption, please provide an appropriate transcript to the Admissions Office.
