WPE I Exam Information

WPE I Registration Process

Towards the end of each semester, the CIS Graduate Coordinator will send an email regarding registering for the Written Preliminary Exams I (WPE I). Students who wish to take the WPE I exams will submit the online registration form.

Doctoral students and only master’s students who are seriously considering trying to become doctoral students should register for the WPE I.

NOTE: You must authenticate with your Google@SEAS account (not PennKey) to register for the WPE I. If you have never used your Google@SEAS account, you may need to set your password following these instructions.
