Departments may request a one-time, one-semester deferral of ELPE retesting from the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies to accommodate scheduling of graduate teaching assignments only if:

  • The two criteria for requesting a retest have been met,
  • The department attests in writing to the adequate English proficiency of the student, as required by the particular teaching duties they are to be assigned, and
  • The department assigns a faculty member to conduct periodic reviews, including observations of student teaching performance during the first month of the semester, with appropriate actions if they deem student performance as unacceptable.
