What is a KPU 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. Without approval from your course Instructor, the exam will be cancelled without refund. These make-up exams are written in the testing center, under the supervision of Assessment and Testing Services.

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.

Testing Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE
