What to Bring When You Write Your Test

Proof of Fee Payment

If you are an international student writing an ESL test, bring proof that your tuition has been paid so that you can be exempted from paying the test fee. 

Davis and Skills Training Centre: Fees are to be paid in advance of writing your test, with debit only, at the registration office during regular hours of operation. If the registration office is closed, you may pay at the Assessment Centre, provided that you have Interac. The Assessment Centre staff cannot receive cash or accept credit card payment. In either case, you will be issued a receipt. Bring your receipt with you to the Assessment Centre when coming to write your test.
Hazel McCallion Campus: Fees are to be paid at the Assessment Centre - room A246 with debit only.  

Valid Photo Identification

A valid photo ID must be presented to the Assessment Centre clerks at the time you write your test. Examples of valid photo ID’s include a current driver’s licence or Sheridan College Student Card.

Letter from Admission Office

If you have been asked to complete a test by the Admissions office, you will have received a letter by mail indicating the type of test required. Bring this letter with you to the Assessment Centre when you write your test. 

What is NOT Permitted?

Calculators and dictionaries are NOT permitted unless specifically indicated in writing by the Instructor prior to test. 

If you have permission to use a calculator or dictionary, please bring your own since the Centre does not provide these materials. 

Personal affects or other materials not permitted during the test must be stored in the storage areas indicated by the Assessment Centre staff prior to writing your test. 

Cells, PDA’s or other personal communications equipment must be turned off and stored with other personal effects away from the writing area. 

Please note - out of respect for others writing exams, family members will NOT be permitted to sit in the Assessment Centre during your exam.
