TOEP Scheduling Guidelines

  • 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. Students who join the IAE grad email list will receive an email notification the day the exam schedule is published.
  • TOEP scores are made available to all test takers and their departments about a week after the test date.

Students with Disabilities

Please contact us at iae@ucdavis.edu if you have a documented disability and need accommodations during the TOEP.

Test takers generally stand for the duration of the 20-minute exam, but sitting is also an option. Just notify the staff when you check in if you would like a chair.
