University policy requires that most international students take the EAP placement test before registering for classes even if the TOEFL test has been taken. Your letter of admission from the Office of Recruitment and Admissions will indicate if you are required to take this test.
Because this test is used to accurately determine your English language skill level, you do not need to "prepare" for it. The scores are used to assign EAP classes that best meet your academic needs and provide you with favorable English experiences necessary for a successful career at IU Columbus.
If you are a graduate student for whom English is not your native language, university policy also requires that you take the EAP placement test before the start of your first semester on campus. Based on the results of the EAP test, you may be required to take supplemental English courses.
