COVID-19 questionnaire

Every student with a scheduled in-person appointment is required to complete a pre-health screening questionnaire on the day of their appointment. The link to the questionnaire will be provided to you in your confirmation appointment email.  


We are starting to offer in-person computer based math assessments at very limited capacity.   

Due to limited capacity, appointments may book up quickly. If you have more than three (3) assessments/course requirements to meet for your program, it is recommended that the course requirements are met first before booking the math assessment. Assessment results are valid for one year. 

We will be opening up appointments 2 to 3 weeks in advance. If there are no dates available, please continue to check as we will be adding more appointments weekly.

Calculators and dictionaries are not allowed during the assessments.
