Students enrolled in a Humber diploma or certificate program must complete the Computerized College Placement Test (CCPT) to determine which English and/or Math courses they should register for. Students enrolled in Post-Graduate or Degree programs are not required to complete placement testing.

Students have the option to complete the test in person/on-campus, or from the comfort of their home via online testing.

Option 1: Online Testing

Students who are required to complete a placement test, have the option to test online, from the convenience of their home.  The fee for online testing is $35 and allows students to test from anywhere in the world, 24/7/365.  Students testing online require the following:

Your test results do not affect your admission status, but they may require you to receive ESL support or take a remedial course that results in additional fees.

Students who are applying for English and/or Math transfer credits do not need to complete the CCPT (unless the transfer credit is ultimately denied). Please click here for information about transfer credits.

Students registered into part time studies will need to complete a placement test if they are interested in taking any English or Math courses through our Department of Continuing and Corporate Education.
