Before You Register

How to Register

The easiest way to register is with your ETS account, either online or via the TOEFL® official app, but you can also register by phone or by mail. Select the method you wish to use below to learn more and get started.

After You Register

Once your online registration is complete, you'll receive a confirmation email with the test date, start time and test center address. This information is also available via your ETS account. Plan to log in to your account the day before your test to make sure that none of the registration details have changed (for example, a different time or building than originally scheduled).
