EPI Schedule

The EPI is administered each semester. In Fall and Spring semesters, first-time examinees are scheduled during the first half of the exam period. Those graduate students who are retaking the EPI are scheduled backwards from the end of the semester so that they have as much time as possible to finish ESL course work or tutoring.

Students should contact their departments to be registered for the EPI.
