Scheduling of assessments, and any required payment, can be done through Student Services at any NLC cam­pus. For applicants who are required to write the CAAT or the Writing Assessment, but who cannot attend at an NLC campus, an invigilator must be secured prior to ap­plying to write the assessment.

The fee schedule for Entrance Assessments applies from 1 August 2019 to 31 July 2020. NLC reserves the right to amend this schedule without notice. Rates are listed in Canadian dollars.
