    I want to request ETS to send my score report to an institution. How can I do this?

    To order an official score report for an institution :

    1. Go to the TOEFL website and check the list of agencies and institutions that accept TOEFL scores.

    2. Find the name of the agency/institution to which you want your score report sent.

    3. Write the name, address, and institution code where indicated.

    4. Many institutions have multiple codes for different departments - please check the institution and department codes carefully to be sure your score reports are sent to the correct location.

    5. If the institution or agency does not have an assigned code number, fill in the institution name and complete mailing address, and leave the institution code area blank.

    I didn't include the universities when I register for TOEFL test, and now I have to pay $18 for each order. Is there any chance for me to send my TOEFL score to universities with free?

    The requirement of the TOEFL score varies from university to university. Certain score might be good for admission to one university and an average for the other university.

    Before you begin studying, you should find out what the requirements are for the school, college or university you are interested in going to. Remember that the scores for the paper based test are different than the scores for the iBT. The average minimum score required is approximately 550 (paper test) or 70 (iBT). However, prestigious universities have much higher expectations. Some schools will look at your scores from different sections. Many universities expect you to achieve higher writing skills than speaking skills. Also, TOEFL scores are only valid for two years.

    The minimum TOEFL iBT Score for Assured Admission

    Typical admissions policies:

    101-120: admission assured (graduate)

    80-100: admission probable (graduate)

    61-79: admission reviewed(graduate)

    43-60: Individual cases reviewed

    120 is the highest TOEFL iBT Score.

    No, you are not required to take TSE along with TOEFL iBT.Since TOEFL iBT includes a Speaking section, institutions and agencies will no
    longer need to have a separate TSE score requirement. TSE will be available upon request in
    locations where the TOEFL paper-based test is administered.

    Score Reports indicate scores in four skill areas: speaking, listening, reading, and writing and a total score. The scores are reported online 15 business days after the test. Once the test takers have selected colleges and universities as score recipients, colleges can also view scores. The hard copies of score reports are also mailed after the scores have been posted online.
    Score Reports also include performance feedback that indicates whether the performance was high, medium or low.

    Hello

    British council & IDP both issue TRF for college…You should approach them and arrange for the special copy for the university. Please let us know in which country and University you have applied because Australia, New Zealand & Singapore will accept the attested copy but US, Canada & UK might not accept just copy or ETS number.

    As a counselor I would advise you to go to council where you've appeared for an exam and get the TRF arranged for the university. If you need any more help then let us know. If you want assistance in applying for our featured University then you can also seek help of our expert counselors by writing to them at amit.wadhwa@learnhub.com or you can call us at: +91-9818566611.

    Best of Luck!!

    Are there any universities which admit students who achieve score 77pts? I found many universities but their requirements at least 79pts. I need two more points. I asked them if I could go to a preparation course or something… the answer was negative.
    Any suggestions? (except to take again the TOEFL Test)

    I did my TOEFL test on September 11 2010. I received my scores via the web on September 22 2010. However I still have not received my TOEFL iBT paper score report which is/was due to be posted to me. I need this document so that I may apply for my UK student visa as my course begins in January.
    My question is when is the paper score report posted after the scores are released?
