Getting Your TOEFL iBT Scores

When you’ll get your scores

Your scores will be available in your ETS account. How soon they’ll be available depends on how you took the test:

  • Taken at a test center: 4–8 days after your test date
  • TOEFL iBT Home Edition: 4–8 days after your test date
  • TOEFL iBT Paper Edition: 11–13 business days after your test date

The exact date you can expect to receive your official scores will be displayed at the end of your TOEFL iBT test1.

How you’ll get your scores

Through your ETS account

You'll get an email when your scores are available, and you can access your account online.

Your scores are valid for 2 years, so you may want to download and print a PDF copy of your score report. PDF score reports are ready for download 2 days after you receive your scores electronically through your ETS account.

PDF score reports are currently not available for tests taken in Mainland China.

If you have questions about your score report, contact TOEFL Services.


By mail

If you requested a paper copy of your score report before you took the test, it will be mailed 11–15 days after your test date, or sooner depending on how you took the test. Delivery times will vary based on local postal services.


When score recipients will receive your scores

When your designated score recipients will receive your scores depends on how you took the test and what method of score delivery they use.
