Many courses and programs at Douglas College require the completion of assessment tests.
Assessments measure a student's current knowledge to ascertain which level of course work is most appropriate.
Students must have applied to the College by submitting an application (either on-line or in-person), pay their application fee, and have a student number assigned to be eligible to register in and take an assessment or challenge exam. Please book early in the semester, prior to your registration and semester start to ensure you are able to meet any deadlines as assessments historically fill to capacity during registration periods. Computer and keyboarding skills are used during the computer-based assessments.
