This webpage will be updated over the Summer with the information for the Fall 2022 exams, so check back.

 

The following information is about the Fall 2022 exams:

For those who pass, the results of the placement exams will be posted to your transcripts by your home school once the Math Dept has verified and completed processing the results. Please allow 3 weeks from the second exam date for your credits to be posted. Students will be informed of their passing of the AP exams within 2-3 days of the first exam date. Makeup exam results will be graded and reported out to students by their Spring course professor and could take longer.  These exams are open to all UPenn students and will be available in person only. We advise students to use our old final exams posted on our "Undergraduate Webpage" to prepare for the exam.

Students registered with SDS will take their makeup or credit exams with the Students Disabilities Office  from 6pm to (TBD by SDS) on Wednesday, August 31, Eastern time. You will not be able to take a second AP exam due to time contraints.  We apologize for the inconvenience. 

Students taking their credit exams on Wednesday, August 31st will be able to take 2 exams (which must be taken in numerical order). However, if you don't pass the first day of Credit exams, you will not be allowed to take the second day of credit exams. 

Postponed Exam Takers:  IF YOU HAVE A CONFLICT WITH THE AUGUST 31st EXAM DATE, CONTACT YOUR SPRING INSTRUCTOR TO MAKE ALTERNATE ARRANGEMENTS ASAP.

Note: If you did not take a final exam and received an "incomplete" grade from the previous semester for any course, you should register below.  

Those registering should self-enroll in the canvas site that is dedicated to the exam you will take (only register for 1 exam) using the links at the bottom of this webpage.  There will be a second signup sheet for those students who want to take a second unit of AP exams. This site should be among the canvas sites you see when you log into canvas.  Go to the canvas site of your exam to read how the exam will run. We would like you to be familiar with the process of scanning and uploading your answers before the exam itself.  Step by step instructions for completing this assignment are given on the canvas site.
