Please note: If you wish to reschedule a standard TOEFL iBT® appointment at a test center to a TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition appointment, you must contact TOEFL® Services. The instructions below are for new Special Home Edition test appointments only.
Before starting your registration, be sure to verify that your computer and testing room meet the Equipment and Environment Requirements. If they don’t, you won’t be able to test.
Follow these steps to start your registration in your ETS account:
- Before you register, have your identification (ID) documents ready. Your primary ID should be a passport. If you do not have a passport, go to ID Requirements to see what other forms of ID are accepted in the country where you are testing. ETS is temporarily accepting government-issued IDs with expiration dates from February 1, 2020, forward. All other ID policies still apply.
- If you do not have an ETS account for the TOEFL iBT test, create an account. Make sure that the name in your account matches the name on your primary ID.
- Log in to your account.
- On your My TOEFL home page, select Register/Find Test Centers.
- On the Find Test Centers and Dates page, select the option for the Special Home Edition test. You will select your test date and time later with ProctorU®.
- Follow the directions to continue your registration and pay for your test.
- When you finish, you will receive an email from ETS confirming your payment.
- You will also receive an email from ProctorU with a link and temporary password to access your ProctorU account and select a test date and time. You can use this immediately to reserve your test date and time. If you don’t, keep it safe for future use.
Now you are ready to complete your registration with ProctorU.
