The TOEFL iBT Home Edition is the same TOEFL iBT test you would take at a test center, so scores can be accepted and used in the same way.
Nearly all universities that use the TOEFL iBT test accept scores equally for the test center test and the Home Edition.
Not all universities specifically list the TOEFL iBT Home Edition on their website even when they accept it because they already list the TOEFL iBT test. Be sure to check with them directly if you have questions about their policy.
If you want to study in Canada through the Student Direct Stream (SDS) study permit processing program, you’ll need to take the TOEFL iBT test at a test center. The TOEFL iBT Home Edition is currently not accepted for SDS purposes.
See the list of institutions below that have specifically indicated that they accept the TOEFL iBT Home Edition; this list is based on information taken from university websites or other official university sources.
