Walk-in registration is not available for the TOEFL iBT. You may
register either online (a credit card, an e-check, or a PayPal
account is required), or by calling our Regional Registration Center
(a credit card, an e-check, or a PayPal account is required), or by
completing and sending by mail the TOEFL iBT Registration Form.
The Registration Form is available online on the TOEFL website or
can be found in the TOEFL iBT Information and Registration
Bulletin. The Registration Form must be received at least four
weeks before your test date. If you register by mail, do not forget to include
payment. Terra Nova recommends online registration for the
fastest, safest, and most convenient service. Online registration is
open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can register by
yourself with your credit card (VISA or MasterCard, which can be
obtained from most Moldovan banks) or you can register at Terra
Nova for a small additional fee of U.S. $10. To register for the
TOEFL iBT online, you must first create your profile in the TOEFL
iBT registration system, either online (preferred) or through a
call service representative, to access all your information in
one place. Create your profile before registering for a test.
This will allow you to complete your registration more
To create your profile in the TOEFL iBT registration system, complete all of the required sections highlighted with an asterisk (*): country/location of residency, first/given name, last/family name, address, native country, native language, country of citizenship, username, and password. For security reasons, you must also select and answer challenge questions that are easy to remember but that others do not know. If you forget your user name or password, you must answer one of these challenge questions to verify your identity. The information you provide will be kept completely confidential. The spelling of your name must exactly match the name printed on the identification document(s) you will present at the center. You must create your username and password according to the following rules. Usernames must be between 6 and 16 characters long and may contain both letters and numbers. The username may NOT contain any special characters like !, $, #, or %. Passwords must be between 8 and 16 characters long. For added security, they must also contain three of the following four character categories: UPPERCASE CHARACTERS (A through Z), lowercase characters (a through z), numeric characters (0 through 9), special characters (for example, !, $, #, %). Your password is case-sensitive. Only English characters are allowed and your password cannot contain your username, first/given name, or last/family name. If you have difficulty creating your profile in the TOEFL Internet-based test registration system, turn to your TOEFL instructor.
To register for the TOEFL iBT online, you must select a test center, choose recipients for your test scores (this step can be skipped), set your score reporting preferences, answer demographic questions (this step can be skipped), review your order, and make your payment. Once you begin the registration process, do NOT use your browser's back button to return to a previous page. Do NOT browse any pages outside of the test registration system. Do NOT double-click any of the buttons, especially while submitting payment.
It is best to select your score recipients (designated institutions to receive your scores) at the time of online registration. In this case, ETS will send your scores to 4 selected score recipients free of charge. You may update this information online free of charge up until 10 p.m. (local test center time) the evening before the test day. After that, a charge will be imposed. You will not be able to select your score recipients at the test center. See the code list for colleges and universities. This list is available during online registration. You will automatically receive a free score report for your records.
After you make your payment, the registration confirmation page will appear. The registration confirmation contains the time the test will be given and the exact test center address. Print out your registration confirmation and bring it with you to the test center. You can also e-mail yourself a copy of the registration confirmation. You will NOT receive an automatic confirmation of your registration by e-mail. The registration confirmation page will also let you view, print, and e-mail yourself a copy of your order receipt if you want confirmation of payment.
Because test centers fill rapidly during desirable times, it is a good idea to register several months in advance. The regular registration deadline is seven days prior to the test date (not including the day of the test). Late registration closes three days prior to the test date (not including the day of the test). Registrations received after the regular registration deadline incur a late fee of U.S. $40. For example, if your test date is October 14, the deadline to register without a late fee is October 7. If you are registering by mail, your registration form must be received at least four weeks before your earliest test date choice. If you are taking the TOEFL iBT as part of the application process for college or university admission, you should plan to take the test early enough for your score to be received by the admission office before the application deadline.
