How many times can I take the WSU MPA?
A: You may retake the placement assessment up to four times. There is generally no benefit to re-taking the assessment immediately after completing a prior attempt. Unlike the SAT or ACT, you cannot improve your results by simply re-taking the assessment without spending time in the Prep and Learning Module to refresh material that you may have forgotten or to learn new material. In fact, you are required to spend 3 hours in the Prep and Learning module before the first reassessment and an additional 5 hours in the Prep and Learning Module before the second reassessment. All reassessments for WSU-Pullman and WSU-Tri Cities students are proctored reassessments on either the WSU-Pullman or WSU-Tri Cities campus.
Online reassessment proctoring is available through ProctorU for an additional fee. For more information on ProctorU please click here.
