Test of English Proficiency for Associate Instructor Candidates (TEPAIC)

Why do I need to take the TEPAIC?

The TEPAIC Oral Interview is administered in order to determine whether international candidates for AI positions at Indiana University have a minimally acceptable level of general oral proficiency in English to give lectures and to interact with students who may not be accustomed to different varieties of English. Although candidates are not expected to communicate in English exactly like native speakers, it is expected that their proficiency level of spoken English will not hinder undergraduate student comprehension of any given subject/lecture.
