Placement Assessments


We want you to succeed. NIC offers a variety of assessments to help you meet program entry requirements or workplace skill requirements.

The placement process requires the following five steps:

  1. Meet with an advisor to discuss your educational goals and next steps in the assessment process. This step must be completed PRIOR to booking your assessment. To book an advisor appointment go to: https://www.nic.bc.ca/student-services/advising/educational-advisors/
  2. Check your NIC email for assessment information.
  3. Pay the assessment fee by calling 1-800-715-0914.
  4. Book your appointment directly with your local assessment clerk.
  5. After your assessment, reconnect with your Advisor to develop a plan to move forward.

NIC offers placement testing for English and math at all our locations and off-campus options for NIC students outside our region.
