Language post-test: Visit http://tms.languagetesting.com/Registration/ to schedule your post-program language test.  To log into the system use the username: iie and password: fellow (both the username and password are case sensitive).  In order to make the process easier for students LTI can conduct language tests by cell phone and SKYPE phone, although landline connections are still recommended to ensure quality service.  LTI will report your test results to IIE directly approximately two weeks after the test is administered.

If you are a Flagship or AFLI participant you will be tested by your overseas program.
