TOEFL TIP: Confirm Your TOEFL® Score Requirements

When you have a list of schools you would like to apply to, it is important to visit each university website for TOEFL admissions requirements. Score requirements may vary, based on whether you are applying for graduate or undergraduate study, so look carefully. For example, University of Cambridge lists its minimum score for the TOEFL Internet-based Test (iBT) as "100 overall." University of Toronto Graduate School lists an overall score of 93 on the TOEFL iBT, and an additional requirement of a minimum writing/speaking score of 22. Purdue University Graduate School is even more specific, requiring an overall score of 77 and minimum scores in writing (18), speaking (18), listening (14) and reading (19). Most institutions accept scores for the TOEFL iBT and the TOEFL Paper-based Test (PBT).

Note: Requirements are subject to change, so please visit each website for updated information.
