Complete your RPQ's for EPME-4 and test before arriving. While this is not a requirement we have historically seen many students struggle with the amount of course work required AND try to study for their EPME-4 test. You will be setting yourself up for even greater success if you have your EPME completed prior to your arrival. This will allow you to focus more on school itself!
