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. to 4:30 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.
Registration is open. Interviews will be scheduled on Tuesdays from 11:30am to 1:30pm and 2:30 to 4:30pm. On Thursdays, interviews will be scheduled from 9:30am to 11:30am and 12:30pm to 2:30pm.

Summer session I: Registration will open on April 17. The EPI will be offered on May 16, 18, and 23.

Interviews will be offered in July and August. August dates are reserved for students who may be hired to teach in the upcoming Fall 2017 semester.
Students who are away for the summer and wish to take the EPI in August in order to qualify for Fall 2017 teaching must arrive on campus by at least 7 to 14 days prior to the Graduate Academy, which starts on August 21. This will allow time for the student to take the EPI and for the official results to be reported to the student’s hiring department prior to the beginning of the Graduate Academy.
Interviews will be offered from early October through early December. Registration will open in early September.
