Test and Registration Dates for 2016-17

The UDWPE will be given eight times during the 2016-17 academic year. In fall 2016, students will have the option of registering for a pilot version of the exam - only 200 seats are available. A limited number of computer-based exams will also be offered each time; please see the box below "Computer-Based Exams" for dates, times, and other important information.

After registering online, you will print your admission ticket. This ticket will give you important information about when and where to report for the test, as well as important information regarding what is and is not allowed inside the testing room.

**IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS WHO REQUIRE SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS**

Non-Saturday testing is available for religious reasons. If your religious convictions prevent you from taking the exam on the scheduled exam date, please check the box for a religious accommodation during the registration process. Additional documentation is required to support your need for accommodations - see submission deadlines above. After registering for the exam, you must contact the Upper Division Writing Proficiency Exam office at udwpe@csun.edu for further instructions.

UDWPE Computer-Based Exams

Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. on the start date and closes at 5:00 p.m. on the end date; however, COMPUTER EXAM SESSIONS FILL VERY QUICKLY - EXAM SESSIONS WILL CLOSE BEFORE THE POSTED END DATE IF EXAM IS FULL.

After a year-long pilot, all computer-based exams now use a different topic, a different prompt, and a different Scoring Guide than the paper-based exams. You can review the "Pilot" Scoring Guide here
