What is the TOEFL?

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) evaluates the English proficiency of people whose native language is not English.  Most U.S. universities require that international applicants take the TOEFL.  Generally a score of 61 to 100 on the Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) or 500 to 600 on the paper-based version is required for admission to undergraduate and graduate programs in the United States, with graduate schools expecting the higher scores.
TOEFL iBT is a four-hour test with content to assess reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills.

More information on the exam content and registering through ETS is available on the TOEFL Web site.

 What do I do on the day of the test?

  2. Bring photo bearing identification, as described in the TOEFL registration bulletin.
  3. Bring your test confirmation information.

What about my scores?

If you need score reports to be sent to additional institutions, please complete the form in the TOEFL bulletin and return it with payment to ETS.  If paying by credit card, you may also call ETS at (609) 771-7267 to order additional score reports.  Scores are valid for two years.Your official scores will be mailed from the United States about four weeks after the test.  Please allow time for them to arrive by international mail.

Questions about any missing score reports should be directed to Educational Testing Service (ETS), the nonprofit organization that develops TOEFL and issues score reports.  An e-mail sent to the ETS customer service address——usually will receive a response in five to seven days.  Test takers should wait at least eight weeks before contacting ETS about score reports.  Score report problems are best avoided by careful preparation of the registration form: writing name and mailing address clearly and following payment procedures detailed in the TOEFL bulletin.
