Updates due to COVID-19

In response to the campus directives related to COVID-19 precautions, IAE will make some adjustments to its programs. This page will be updated as the situation develops.

Please refer to https://www.ucdavis.edu/coronavirus/ for campus-wide announcements, https://studentaffairs.ucdavis.edu/news/coronavirus-faqs for Student FAQs, and https://grad.ucdavis.edu/resources/corona-virus-updates-and-guidance for Graduate Student updates.

All IAE staff are working hybrid schedules with some days on campus and some days remote. If you need to meet with a member of our team, please contact us to arrange a time.

Updates to Graduate Programs

  • Language & Culture Coaching: In-person sessions resumed Fall 2021. Some one-on-one sessions may be online. 
  • Graduate student workshops will not be offered in Fall 2021.
  • TOEP was offered online March 2020-September 2021 but is expected to return to an in-person format in November 2021.
  • 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.
