TOEFL Score Report - How long does it take?

Does anyone know how long it takes for the score to be mailed to the colleges you list @ the testing center? (from the time you take the exam)

    Hey, why do I see space for only 8 institutions on the score report request. What if I wanna send my score report to more than 8 schools?? How will I do that?
  • madfoxmadfoxmadfoxmadfox Posts: 53Registered User Junior Member
    If you want to reply to more than 8, you will have to download another form from the website. Go to toefl.org and use the search box. That was the case for me, but I took the paper-based version so things may be different if you took the computer-based.
    TOEFL guys are quite inefficient compared to SAT guys. Don't know why, because doesn't ETS organize both? I was quite annoyed with them - I took both TOEFL and SAT this year and SAT people were much nicer in email replies, quicker in sending scores - I mean, you can't order scores to be sent online for TOEFL-PBT! Stupid!

    Thanks madfox. I thought I must use the request form in the bulletin. So we can download and print the form from toefl web site? that's great! I also took the paper-based versiona nd haven't received the score report.

    If you want to send additional TOEFL score reports the fastest way to do so is ordering them by phone. The schools will receive the reports 4 days after you called, but this service is very expensive: 15$ per school you want it to be sent to and 12$ for the phone call. You can only have the score sent to 6 schools per call.

    TOEFL is expensive. And pretty unnecessary too. i mean if i can get an 800 in my SAT verbal, why should i have to give the stupid exam anyway?
  • perfectdark9perfectdark9 Posts: 353Registered User Member
    You don't - I don't think any college will want you to take the TOEFL if you get 800 in Verbal.

    I took the computer - based TOEFL at the end of October, and I got my score today. However, they've mailed it out from New Jersey exactly two weeks after my test date, so it took about a week to reach me. But I'm happy that I know my score has already reached Columbia since New York is so close to New Jersey. ^^

    From your experience, how long did it take for ETS to send out to TOEFL scores (for those institutions which you requested to send official scores to during the test)? And if you send them by phone, is it much faster?
  • tenniscrazetenniscraze Posts: 1,397- Senior Member

    Exactly.I talked to a few univs wher they required toefl,They said that they wud waive it for me,coz I got 770 in V and 800 Wr

    Yeah I didn't take toefl too, as the scores and board exam marks are enough (+ we are in english schools in india).

    As for score reports, I remember someone mentioned that you can just send attested photocopies of your score report and the colleges wont mind it (i think hello said that).
