Program Assessments

Assessments evaluate your current skills and abilities to ensure success in your program. Some NIC programs require assessments for program entry or accept assessments as an alternative for program entry.

Contact an educational advisor for information on program entry requirements.

For NIC applicants the assessment process requires the following five steps:

  1. Meet with an educational 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.
