Test Centres

Seneca's Test Centres offer students and other institutions a comfortable environment for test-writing. Our Test Centres are located at the King, Markham, Newnham and Seneca@York campuses. We offer various testing services including:

Skills Assessment

Skills Assessment is a tool to determine academic placement for your English and/or math class during your first semester of studies. This assessment is done after you have confirmed your offer of admission. Be sure to act quickly — getting your first-semester timetable may depend on a completed assessment.

As soon as you have confirmed your offer of admission and verified that your program requires an assessment, please book your Skills Assessment. Please note that when the semester begins, students can no longer book their assessments. Instead, the Test Centre welcomes students on a walk-in basis.

Please ensure that when you arrive to complete your Skills Assessment, you have government-issued photo identification or your Seneca OneCard. Please note that health cards are NOT permitted.


Out-of-town Students

If you cannot attend a Skills Assessment in person, arrangements can be made with Seneca's Skills Assessment department to complete your assessment online, using a virtual proctor for a fee of $25 US to be paid directly to the third-party proctor. This online service can only be considered for students who require an English Skills Assessment for the May 2019 semester.

All you need is a computer, a webcam and a high-speed Internet connection. A live, online proctor will provide the necessary software to effectively conduct your test session remotely. After the session is complete, the proctor will conclude the test session and remove any remote proctoring software from your workstation.

To request an out-of-town Skills Assessment, please contact with the subject line: Out-of-town student

You will need to include your full name, your Seneca student number and your birth date (mm/dd/yyyy).
