Students enrolled in a Humber diploma or certificate program must complete placement tests in English and/or Math to know what level of English/Math courses they should be registering into. Students enrolled in Post-graduate or Degree programs are not required to complete a placement test.
All students must book their CCPTs online and take them at a Humber Testing Services location.
Test results are valid for one year. If you have completed a placement test in the last year there is no need to retest.

- Testing Options
Online: Students can choose to complete their CCPT requirements online – all you need is a secure internet connection, webcam and a quiet space to test. Students who wish to take advantage of the online option (which will save time, travel expense, and provide a sense of convenience) will be charged a $35 fee. To register for online placement testing please select the first session available through the Flexible Registration platform. You will see that the location is listed as "Distance Learning / Online."
After registering for online placement testing you will receive a follow up email within seven days that includes your voucher codes and further instructions for testing.
In person: Students can complete their test in person at a Testing Services location (North - LRC2143, Lakeshore - WEL307, Orangeville - AL204). Sessions are available for registration through the Flexible Registration platform, and new sessions are opened as needed.
- Additional CCPT Information
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 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.
