Explanation of retake policy (NOTE: The retake does not change the original test expiration date). If the first MPE was completed on January 1, 2012 then the expiration date is January 1, 2013. The student is allowed one retake during this period, but the expiration date is still January 1, 2013. 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 until the MPE is completed again.
