ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI)
Applicants for the telephonic OPI are required to submit two (2) test dates and times to LTI. These dates/times must be chosen in collaboration with the Rutgers test proctor, Ms. Daissy Santamaria, prior to registering for the OPI. Call 848-932-7883 to speak with Ms. Santamaria, who will assign you the two dates and times she is available to proctor your telephonic OPI.
IMPORTANT: In order to keep your two assigned dates and times reserved, you must forward to Ms. Santamaria the confirmation emailed to you from LTI indicating that your registration has been received by LTI. Failure to forward your confirmation email to Ms. Santamaria can result in the loss of your two dates and times and their reassignment to another applicant.
The non-refundable proctoring fee is separate from the fee paid to LTI for the OPI.
