All EPI examinees must be registered in advance. Individual departments register eligible graduate students via an online registration system. Students may not register themselves. The URL for registration is emailed to departments early each semester.
Given the number of students that are interviewed each semester, CITL cannot accommodate the individual schedules of each prospective TA. Scheduled EPI examinees should be advised that the EPI is a Provost-approved absence and instructors are expected to make reasonable accommodations for a student who is scheduled to take the EPI. The graduate student is responsible for contacting their instructors regarding the absence or tardiness or any missed work.
In order to register graduate students for the EPI, departmental contacts will need the following information:
Within 10 days after receipt of an EPI registration, CITL will email the student's schedule to the department contact and to the student. Departments will no longer need to forward the schedule to their students.
CITL will send two automatic email reminders to students, at one week and at two days before their exam time.
