|Registration for the TEPAIC and the Appeal
Exam and Notification of Results
Before new candidates may sign up for the TEPAIC, they must have taken the TOEFL within the past two years and met the minimum TOEFL requirements, including the overall score, sub-scores, and writing score. If they do not have a TOEFL score which is two years old or less or if they do not have the minimum TOEFL score or sub scores, candidates have the option of retaking or taking a TOEFL or the Indiana English Proficiency Exam (IEPE).
For a student to register, their department must send an email memo to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the department's wish to have the student take the TEPAIC exam. Please send the student's full name, department and ID information. This will enable the student to register for the exam. This memo needs to be received at least two weeks prior to the first date of sign-ups (See Dates section.)
A student who has been given permission by their department with a memo will need to come in-person to register for their exam time. All students will need to have a picture ID with them for the registration process when they arrive.
The registration process for the TEPAIC begins at the Second Language Studies, in the office of Mandy Stewart, Memorial Hall 315, 1021 East Third Street, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday - Thursday.
While at Memorial Hall, candidates choose a 15-minute interview appointment time and are asked to give the Second Language Studies office contact information. They are also given an information sheet about the test. The 15-minute oral interviews are usually held on the Third Floor of of Memorial Hall between 1:30 and 9:00 p.m. on a specific date, four times a year.
Appeal Exam Registration
The Appeal Exam is available to TEPAIC candidates who receive an "NC4" on their 15-minute oral interview. A student who receives a C3 may also take the appeal if their department has a minimum of a C2. The registration process to take the Appeal Exam will begin 24 hours after the TEPAIC oral interviews are completed. Students must come to Memorial Hall 315 to choose their 30-minute appointment time and receive a description of the Appeal Exam. The Appeal Exams will be given as soon as possible after the 15-minute TEPAIC oral interviews and will continue until all students have been tested.
Appropriate personnel in departments, the Graduate School and Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs will be notified as soon as possible about TEPAIC oral interview results. There will be a second announcement to the same individuals about the results of the Appeal Exam. Exam results are sent to individual candidates by email if they wish; otherwise, they can find out their results in their respective departments.
