Orientation in G301


Assessment & Placement

Students are required to take the Computerized Placement Test (CPT) to assess entry-level skills in mathematics, English and writing. Students who have completed college level English and mathematics at another tertiary institution with a minimum grade of C will not be required to take the CPT.  
Counselling & Career Centre (CCC)

Based on the result of the CPT, high school transcript, SAT and any other tests taken, you and your academic advisor will select appropriate courses to start you on your path to success. Placement in preparatory courses may be required depending on your scores and academic goals. Preparatory courses serve as prerequisites to college level courses. A grade of “C” or better must be attained in preparatory courses for admission to college level courses.
