About us

The VCC Assessment Centre delivers assessments that determine education and skill level for entry into VCC programs and/or placement into upgrading classes. These assessments include English, math, and keyboarding.

Please note that completion of VCC assessments does not guarantee admission into classes or programs at VCC.
