For remote SCPD students: Please email the TAs with your email address, the email address of your SCPD monitor if you have one, and which day you would like to take the exam. We will email a pdf to you which you should print, complete, and fax back to us at 650 725-4671. Also email us when you fax the exam back so we can be on the lookout for it. We will email you with confirmation of receipt so hold on to your exam until you receive confirmation. Note that if you are local to the bay area, you must come to one of two exam slots unless you contact us in advance.
