  • Assessment and Advisement services are available for students to complete ONLINE! 

    Warning: During all major holidays assessment results and email responses from our programs will be delayed in processing, as staff will be on vacation during those times. 

    Assessment will provide you with your course placements in math and English/ESL as well as resources that may be a good fit for you. Our assessments are not tests, but are instead questionnaire-based. This system relies on "multiple measures," which include your academic history. For this reason, we suggest you gather a copy of high school transcript if available (if not available, you can take your best guess). The online assessment module will first show you a short instructional training, and then you will be provided with information on how to access and start the assessment itself. The entire process takes about 20 minutes to complete. Additional resources can be found on the Assessment homepage. If you need help, contact

    Advisement will provide you with the tools you need to learn how to select the right courses and programs to meet your educational goals. The online advisement module will help you make connections between your assessment results, career goals, majors, and the courses you should take in your first semester. For this reason, you should complete your assessment prior to starting your advisement.  At the end of the Advisement module, you will be given the opportunity to request follow-up services with an Academic Advisor for one-on-one support. Additional resources can be found on the Advisement homepage. If you need help, contact
