Updates to Graduate Programs

  • Language & Culture Coaching will be offered 100% online for the foreseeable future. 
  • Graduate student workshops will not be offered for the foreseeable future.
  • TOEP on March 16-20, 2020 was cancelled. The TOEP will be offered online in Spring 2020 and for the foreseeable future. It will still be offered at the end of every quarter.
  • TA Language Proficiency Requirement. Students who are conditionally eligible to hold TA positions will maintain their conditional status until in-person testing resumes or until they become fully eligible. That is, the two-quarter limit for TAs working with a TOEP Conditional Pass has been removed until further notice. Conditionally eligible TAs are still required to complete concurrent English instruction during each quarter they work as a TA until they receive a Pass on the TOEP or otherwise meet the TA Language Proficiency Requirement.
