When should I take the WSU MPA?
A: New freshmen and transfer students should complete their assessments before coming to Summer Alive or any of the other orientation visits during which you will be meeting with an advisor. The sooner you take it, the more opportunity there will be for you to review and re-test if you are not satisfied with your placement. If you aren't satisfied with your initial assessment, WSU-Pullman and WSU-Tri Cities students will have the opportunity to retest in a proctored environment at the WSU campus. Be sure to spend the required amount of time in the Prep and Learning Module before coming to WSU for your orientation. The required time before the first re-assessment is 3 hours in the Prep and Learning Module.
