Special TEPAIC Guidelines

Due to the fact that rare, emergency situations do occasionally occur, a department may ask for a special TEPAIC session to be scheduled for 1 - 3 students.
This is granted by the TEPAIC Coordinator on a case by case basis.
If granted and if raters are available, a standard 20 minute TEPAIC interview session is scheduled per student.
For a special TEPAIC session outside the normally scheduled quarterly testing times, there is no option for an appeal.
Contact tepaic@indiana.edu for more information.

For students needing a special session the following information must be emailed to tepaic@indiana.edu for setting thier exams:

Candidates must have a valid TOEFL/IELTS score that meets the minimum requirements, including the overall score, sub-scores, and writing score.
If they do not have a valid proficiency score and/or a score that meets the minimum requirement, candidates have the option of (re)taking a TOEFL or the Indiana Academic English Test (IAET).
The department should verify that these requirements are met prior to sending the memo.

*Students whose departments have judged that they have evidence of English proficiency from sources other than the TOEFL or IELTS may be allowed to take the TEPAIC under the following conditions:

1) a signed departmental memo attached to the department’s initial authorization stating that the department judges the student to have adequate proficiency in English; and

2) if the student does not pass the TEPAIC at the level required for teaching in their department, before being allowed to take the exam a second time, they must demonstrate proficiency through performance on the TOEFL or IELTS or successfully complete T502 “Communication Skills for International Associate Instructors.”
