Here’s how to get started:

Interested students are invited to attend an Academic Assessment session in math and/or English as a starting point. Writing the assessment provides us the opportunity to determine your skills and knowledge in these subject areas and helps us to create a personalized education plan to help you reach your goals. How much formal education you have completed doesn’t matter. In fact, the assessment is a great opportunity to reflect all types of learning from life experiences, work experiences, as well as formal education.

Where:

Every Tuesday, at 9:30 a.m. Oshawa campus, Simcoe building, room 1286.

Potential Uxbridge students call 905.852.7848 to book an appointment. 

Parking:

Founders 3, located at the north end of the campus by the hydro tower. Please be advised that paid parking is in effect, the current rate is $5 per day.

How can I prepare for the assessment?
