Skills Assessment

Congratulations on your acceptance into a Seneca program. Skills Assessment is a tool to determine academic placement for your English and/or math class during your first semester of studies.

As a new Seneca student, you may need to write a Skills Assessment. Please check here to see if your program requires a Skills Assessment.

As soon as you have confirmed your offer of admission and verified that your program requires a Skills Assessment, please book your Skills Assessment. Please note that, when the semester begins, students can no longer book their Skills Assessment. The Test Centre will gladly accommodate you on a walk-in basis, during our hours of operation.

If you are experiencing difficulties with the online booking system please email the Assessment Department at  

If you have a learning or physical disability requiring special accommodation, please contact the Counselling and Accessibility Services prior to booking your Skills Assessment appointment.
