Exam Fee Payment Student Search
There is a $110 fee for the UC Analytical Writing Placement Exam. The fee will be waived if you received a waiver of the UC admission application fee. Students taking the AWPE should enter the information below and on the following pages to pay the required exam fee or confirm their exam fee has been waived.

Your UC Application ID is a 7-digit number that can be found on the receipt/summary email you received when you submitted your UC admission application. If you did not save this receipt, you can find your Application ID by signing back in to your UC Application and clicking on the "View Application" link. You will then see your Application ID on the top left of the page. If you are a California high school senior taking the exam in May, you can also find your UC Application ID on the test notification letter that displays your assigned test site.

California high school seniors:
If you are admitted to a UC campus and have not satisfied the Entry Level Writing Requirement, you will receive a letter in mid-April noting the high school test center where you have been assigned to take the exam on the second Saturday in May. If you are on a waitlist for admission, do not pay the exam fee or take the May exam unless you are officially admitted. You must bring the test notification letter displaying your assigned test site with you to the exam. Keep the proof of payment for your records.

All other entering or enrolled freshmen:
If you are admitted to a UC campus and have not satisfied the Entry Level Writing Requirement, you will take the exam at your UC campus when you arrive for fall term. Check your campus website for test dates and procedures. You must take a printed copy of your proof of payment status to the exam given at your UC campus.
