    To be eligible for a Regents exam waiver in June or August 2021,all students who successfully (receive a passing final grade of 65% or higher) complete a course that culminates with a Regents Examination will automatically receive an exemption for the exam.

    Students may wish to take the Regents exam if they are not on track toward passing all of the necessary courses by June.
