iTEP was first included in the handbook for the 2011-2012 school year after the CSU Chancellor’s Office approved iTEP for admissions purposes. Home to nearly half a million students, CSU is the largest university system in the US. “It’s also iconic,” adds iTEP Executive Director Michael Salenko. “Students around the world know these universities and want to come to California.”
The partnership is especially important to Boston Educational Services, creators of the iTEP, because the company is headquartered in Canoga Park, just outside of Los Angeles. “We’re very close to CSU Northridge,” says Salenko, “and proud that they accept the most convenient and affordable English test for admissions.”
