Writing Proficiency Requirement
Students applying for TEP at MSU must take the Writing Preprofessional Skills Test (PPST) and obtain a minimum score of 172.
The PPST Writing test is available in two formats. Test dates and test sites (which include MSU) are listed in the Educational Testing Service Registration Booklet, which is available in the MSU Testing Center (501 Ginger Hall). The computer-based version is available in most major cities, including Lexington, Covington, and Louisville. Check the ETS Web site or PRAXIS Registration Bulletin for additional information and/or to schedule testing. Please allow ample time for test results to be submitted to the MSU Testing Center prior to applying for admission.
