EPI Schedule

The EPI is administered each semester. Interviews typically are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays and are scheduled every 20 minutes, typically between 9:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. 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.

Interview days and times during special exam periods in January, May, and August will vary from the above and will be announced when registration opens.
