  • Scores for the March 31st exam have been posted in SOLAR. You need a score of 8 or higher to pass the WPE. (Each exam is read by two faculty readers, each of whom give a score - the scores are combined and must total at least 8 to pass.) If you did not pass and need help, please see "What if I fail?"
  • Registration for the May 5th exam is now open and will close on April 27th or sooner if capacity is met. Register soon to ensure your spot.
  • If you are an undergraduate and you have a registration hold because you have not yet completed the WPE, you can file a request for more time to satisfy the requirement if you have never done so. Please click the red button on the right "Time Extension," complete and submit the form. Any further questions about that process should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Studies - they make all decisions regarding registration holds. Their number is 818.677.2969.
  • The Learning Resource Center offers free prep sessions and workshops to help you prepare for the exam. You can find more information at the link, including how to sign up.
