MPE On-campus for Winter Session Enrollment


The Math Testing and Placement Office recommends that students take the MPE as soon as possible to obtain options for Winter session enrollment.  Additionally, students receive diagnostic results which can be used to inform independent review prior to the start of coursework.

Registration is required (no walk-ins are allowed). 


  • Students are allowed to register for only one test date.  Multiple dates will be deleted. 
  • You MUST cancel your registration 24 hours prior to the testing time if you are not able to attend.
  • Students who do not cancel within 24 hours and who do not show up to the test session will not be allowed to test on campus and any registration made after a “no-show” will be deleted on Eventbrite. 

Students must wait at least 60 days before attempting to retake a Math Placement Exam.  MPE results from students who retake prior to the 60 day waiting period will not be processed.  Students are expected to enforce the retake policy when registering for and attending an exam session. 

Contact if you have questions or need assistance to cancel a registration.
