Testing: TOEFL & TOEIC
TIEP offers Institutional TOEFL exams five times per year to enrolled students. One TOEFL exam is included in each semester's tuition and fees. Generally, it takes beginning students three semesters of study, intermediate students two semesters of study, and advanced students one semester of study to be ready to begin academic study at a U.S. college or university. Students who complete TIEP's highest academic preparation level have an average TOEFL score of 573 (IBT score 89) with 23% scoring above 600 (IBT score 100).
