TOEP Scheduling

  • Students must register for the TOEP at least one week prior to the exam date. Registration closes seven days before each exam date.
  • The TOEP is offered at the end of each quarter.
  • It is recommended that students take the TOEP as early as possible and not wait until the quarter before they want to work as a TA.
  • TOEP Registration is first come, first served. Students who register early will have the best opportunity to find a time that works the best for their schedules. IAE cannot accommodate every student's individual schedule, so students need to plan ahead and register for the TOEP as early as possible.
  • TOEP scores are made available to all test takers and their departments about a week after the test date.

Register for the TOEP

TOEP Registration is currently closed. The TOEP will be offered next at the end of the Fall Quarter. Please check back later to register. You can sign up on our mailing list to receive an email when the dates are published.


When registration is open, you will sign up for the TOEP by completing the following steps.

    Note: Students who have not sufficiently prepared for all parts of the TOEP will not be permitted to take the test.
  3. Download the document for part 2.
  4. Prepare for the TOEP. You may want to meet with an IAE Language & Culture Coach to practice.
