NEW! The Assessment Centre is in the process of phasing in a pilot of computer- based assessment tests for math, English and Fine Furniture.  When the phase-in is complete, the fee will be $30 per test.

A similar transition for Trades math, ESL testing, and DRC conducted tests will be implemented in the near future. Until then the test fee will remain at $10 per test. If you need clarification about the fee rate applicable to your particular test appointment, please contact Assessment staff:

Assessment is a tool used to determine a current level of skill in an academic subject. At Camosun we use English and math assessment tests.

If you are a potential or current student who does not have the English or math prerequisites to enter a program or take a course here at Camosun, you might need to take an assessment test.

The results from the assessment test will either allow you to enter the program or course of your choice without the published academic prerequisites or indicate the level of academic upgrading to begin your work.

If you need help planning your education, talk to an Admissions Advisor. Admission Advisors help you to understand admissions processes, and your next steps. They can also refer you to other support services, if necessary.
