Skills Assessment

Skills assessment is a tool to determine academic placement for your 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.

If you have difficulties booking your appointment, email skills.assessment@senecacollege.ca

How to View Your Skills Assessment Math Placement

You will not receive a grade, mark or score. Once the open enrolment period begins, log into Student Home. Select the “Academic Progress” tile, then the “Academic Requirements” tab on the left-hand side. The assessed math course will be displayed at the bottom of the Special Instructions section. The math course that is displayed in this section is the math course you are to enrol into.
