My SCJP cert expires at the end of June. I was wondering if I would still be able to take the upgrade exam for 1.5 even after my 1.4 cert expires?

Sun has changed their policy so that certs no longer expire. See this page for more info.

Hello Bill,

You can request another certificate and ID card without an expiration date printed on it. More info here.
