KPU Make-Up Exams

What is a Make-Up Exam?
KPU students who have missed an in-class exam must seek approval from their course instructor to write a Make-Up exam with Assessment and Testing Services. These make-up exams are written in the testing center, under the supervision of Assessment and Testing Services.

How do I book a Make-Up Exam?

After securing your instructor's approval you may register and pay online for a Make-up exam. Your instructor will be contacted to ensure approval.

What is the cost?
Students who are requesting a make-up exam are charged $40 per exam, to a maximum length of 3 hours. Each additional hour (or portion thereof), is an additional $10. Students who need to reschedule a make-up exam must have their instructor approval. There will be an additional $40 charge for rescheduling


What do I do on the day of the exam?
1. Arrive at the test location, at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled exam.
2. Bring current photo identification.
3. Bring your online confirmation receipt for make-up exams.
