Entrance Placement Test
All students must take the Entrance Placement Test (EPT) in order to take a course or start the program. The test results are used to evaluate the student’s current level of proficiency and place the student in the appropriate level within the program structure. The test is approximately two hours and it consists of four different sections:
- Listening comprehension
- Reading comprehension

IMPORTANT: Students must register for the test. Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirming the time and location of the test.
- Since the test is written by a large group of students, please ensure that you arrive 20 minutes before the scheduled time.
- Please bring two pieces of photo ID, a sharp HB pencil and an eraser.
Your test results will be available at the time of course registration or can be picked up in person at Client Services a few business days after the test. There is a non-refundable test fee of $35 CAD, payable at the time of registration.
Test results are valid for one year. Students can only take the test once per session.
On the first day of classes, the course lecturer confirms the student’s placement and may recommend a transfer to another level in certain cases. In each case, the final decision for a transfer is made by the course lecturer and the administration.
Please note that course registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Taking the placement test does not guarantee a space in a course.
