To prepare for your online placement assessment, please activate your myCentennial college email account by completing the following instructions:
Go to: my.centennialcollege.ca
Login using your existing myCentennial ID (your 9-digit Centennial College student ID number) and password.
If it is your first time logging in please see the information below for login credentials:
- User Name: You can find your 9-digit Centennial College ID on your offer letter
- Password: Your initial (first) password will be your date of birth (MMDDYY format)
- Change your password and keep it in a safe place
After logging into myCentennial, you will need to set up your email. Click on the Email link under the title Office 365 to set up your email account.
Check your myCentennial email account for your voucher and instructions to set up a user profile and arrange an online appointment to take your skills assessment 48 hours after receiving the first message.
Your voucher is valid for 30 days, please plan for your virtual appointment as soon as possible (before the expiry date). There is no fee for this service. Appointment dates and times are of your choosing.
To prepare for your online skills assessment you will need the following:
- Desktop or laptop computer with internet, headset, and camera (tablets and Chromebooks are not supported)
- Desk or table in a private room with a door – you may not take the test on the floor or sitting on a bed
- Current government-issued photo ID
You will receive a confirmation email that your appointment is confirmed and a follow-up reminder email 48 hours before your scheduled online appointment.
On test day, you will have an identification verification by the proctor. As soon as this verification process is complete, you can begin your skills assessment. After the final question, you simply submit your test.
Your college record will be updated with your skills assessment scores within 48 hours and you can complete your timetable for English and math courses using your myCentennial login. If you need assistance please contact your School’s Success Advisor.
