If you do not have transcripts indicating that you have met the Admission Prerequisites for a program, specified Entrance Assessments are used for some College programs or courses.
Assessments used include the Canadian Adult Achievement Test (CAAT), the NLC Writing Assessment, Calculus Readiness Assessment, and Career and College Preparation Math and English Readiness appraisals. The assessment utilized will depend upon the program of study in which a student wishes to enrol. There is a cost for some assessment tests.
Scheduling of assessments, and any required payment, can be done through Student Services at any NLC campus. For applicants who are required to write the CAAT or the Writing Assessment, but who cannot attend at an NLC campus, an invigilator must be secured prior to applying to write the assessment.
