Submission Guidelines: Backup Email Submission

Beginning Monday, May 18, and continuing through the makeup window, there will be a backup email submission process for browser-based exams.

  • This option will only be available for students who were not able to submit using the standard process—and they must email their responses immediately following their exam.
  • These students will see instructions about how to email their response on the page that says, "We Did Not Receive Your Response." The email address that appears will be unique to each student.
  • Any student testing between May 18 and 22 who can’t successfully upload their response through the exam platform or send it to us by email, will need to request a makeup exam.
  • To protect the security and validity of exams, we’re unable to accept submissions from students who tested May 11–15. However, these students can feel confident that the email option will be in place for them during the makeup exams.
  • Email submissions will not be available for the world language exams.
