English upgrading PLACEMENT information

The upgrading courses offered by Douglas College range from fundamentals to the college prep level.

About Placements

Placement sessions are used to place you in the course best suited to your needs, past experience and current skills. Placement depends on your performance on a test and an interview with an instructor. The tests are not pass/fail tests; they are used only for placement. 


Placements are offered throughout the Fall, Winter and Summer semesters on both campuses, but you must register by calling one of the numbers below. Please contact the English Upgrading department to book your placement test time. It is important to register early to be sure you get a placement session before your registration date.
