iTEP International was founded in 2002 by two individuals with deep roots in the international education field. Together, they embarked on the creation of an English proficiency test that addressed the needs of the international education community.
iTEP‘s first test, iTEP Academic was introduced in 2008 and quickly became popular with a wide variety of organizations. It is now accepted by the admissions offices of hundreds of US colleges and universities, as well as many intensive English programs throughout the country. Soon after, the iTEP catalog began to boom. With the addition of iTEP SLATE and iTEP Business, the building blocks for modern day iTEP were set.
