How to Register for a Test

Planning ahead

It's important that students consider their overall timeline when choosing a test date. They need to make sure scores will be sent prior to application deadlines, and they may want to leave time for retesting. Test takers should:

  • plan to take the TOEFL iBT test 2 to 3 months before their earliest application deadline
  • register for the test 4 months before their desired test date


Registration deadlines

  • Regular registration: 7 days before the test
  • Late registration: 2 days before the test (US$40 fee)
  • Reschedule a test: 4 days before the test (US$60 fee)
  • Cancel a test: 4 days before the test — see Refund Policies in the TOEFL iBT® Information Bulletin.
