To request an off-campus assessment, you must be living outside the Vancouver Island University (Nanaimo, Duncan, Powell River) region.
In order to register for ABE courses you must first:
- Find a suitable professional Test Supervisor.
- Complete and submit the form below OR print this page, complete it and mail to us.
- Pay the non-refundable $25 fee for an off-campus ABE assessment*. Call the cashier's office at 250-740-6236 to pay by credit card, giving your name and confirming payment for off-campus assessment.
*If payment is not received within 1 month, you will be asked to re-submit your off-campus request.
Once we have received payment, we will send the tests to your test supervisor and let you know that the package is on its way. The test supervisor will return the tests to us for marking and the ABE Student Success Advisor will contact you to discuss your results.
The assessment is for ABE Math and English courses only.
It is your responsibility to contact your test supervisor to arrange a time to write the assessment, and you are responsible for any additional fees charged by your test supervisor.
