TOEFL Test Online

To meet the needs of students who are unable to take the TOEFL iBT® test at a test center due to the current situation, ETS is temporarily offering the TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition test. The test is identical in content, format and on-screen experience to the TOEFL iBT test taken at a test center. It is taken on your own computer at home and is monitored by a human proctor online through ProctorU®.  


We strongly recommend that students who want to apply by the next application deadline take advantage of this offer to avoid any delays in the application process!
