Learners who submit payment for a DEDP course receive one attempt at the Proctored Exam for that course.
The timing of your payment for a DEDP course affects only when you can sit for the proctored exam. You must make your payment before the payment deadline in order to sit for the exam at the end of that semester. For example, if you would like to sit for the exam session at the end of the upcoming Summer semester, you must make your payment before July 2, 2021. If you make your payment after July 2, 2021, but before October 15, 2021, you will have to wait to sit for the exam session at the end of the Fall semester of 2021. You should make your payment according to when you would like to complete the proctored exam.
You will not need to retake a course you have passed after you make your payment; passing scores achieved on the audit track are saved on your program and qualify you to sit for the exam whenever you make your payment in the future.
Please note, not every DEDP course’s proctored exam is offered every semester. To plan your schedule, please visit the FAQ How often will the DEDP courses and proctored exams be offered? Where can I find a schedule for all upcoming course runs and proctored exams?
Recent Changes to DEDP Proctored Exam Attempts
Learners who received two Proctored Exam attempts per payment in the past are eligible to sit for the Proctored Exam up to two times before the end of the Fall 2021 semester exam period.
The number of Proctored Exam attempts associated with DEDP course payments will be retroactively reduced to one attempt per payment at the end of the Fall 2021 DEDP semester's Proctored Exam period. Learners who received two Proctored Exam attempts at any time in the past, have not yet used both attempts, and wish to sit for both attempts must use both attempts by the end of the Fall 2021 DEDP semester’s Proctored Exam testing session. Because it is not possible to sit for the Proctored Exam for any DEDP course more than once during a single semester, learners who currently have two attempts for a course and wish to make use of both, must use at least one attempt before or during the Summer 2021 DEDP semester, so that they may use the second attempt during the Fall 2021 semester.
Learners who received two Proctored Exam attempts for any DEDP course and have used neither attempt by the end of the Fall 2021 DEDP semester will have one of their attempts removed. They will have one attempt remaining for that course.
Learners who received two Proctored Exam attempts for any DEDP course and have used only one attempt by the end of the Fall 2021 DEDP semester will have their second attempt removed. They will have zero attempts remaining for that course.
