TOEFL iBT Testing Options

The TOEFL iBT test is offered two ways, so you can choose the best option to fit your needs and preferences. Be sure to check with the institutions where you are applying to confirm their specific requirements.


Test at a test center

If you prefer a traditional test environment, a test center is the best option for you.

  • Availability: Available worldwide at thousands of authorized TOEFL iBT test centers.
  • Test day: Visit What to Expect on Test Day to see a video about checking in and other test center procedures you’ll experience on test day.
  • Dates: Offered more than 170 times a year.

Test at home

The TOEFL iBT Home Edition is the same TOEFL iBT test you would take at a test center, just taken from the privacy of your own home and monitored online by a human proctor.
