Explanation of retake policy (NOTE: The retake does not change the original test expiration date). If the first MPE was completed on January 1, 2019, then the expiration date is January 1, 2020. The student is allowed one retake during this period, but the expiration date is still January 1, 2020. The student needs to enroll or successfully complete the general education math requirement during the above time period or they will not be allowed to enroll in a math course until the MPE is completed again.
