Learn more about Automated Server-to-Server Feeds.

Printed score reports have several security features, including:

  • the ETS Security Guard, a special heat-sensitive ink that, when activated, verifies the report's authenticity
  • an orange bar with dots that makes it impossible to scan or photocopy the score report
  • a Laser Lock on the face of the paper that makes it difficult to remove toner from laser- or ion-printed documents

Paper score reports include MyBest scores and are mailed to TOEFL Designated Institutions (DIs) twice a week within 11–13 business days of the test date. The annual fee for paper score reports is US$300.

Score delivery time can vary based on how DIs have chosen to receive scores:

  • ETS Data Manager: 4–8 business days (11–12 business days for TOEFL iBT Paper Edition)
  • Server-to-server feeds: 8–10 business days (11–16 business days for Paper Edition)
  • Postal mail: 11–13 business days plus mailing time. Allow an additional 7–10 days for mail delivery in the United States, and 4–6 weeks for mail delivery to other locations.
