TOEFL Score Requirements for Colleges

Hello! I was wondering if someone could help me understand TOEFL score requirements for colleges - are there any minimum requirements for most colleges? And where can I find a list of colleges along with their required TOEFL scores? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! Many colleges do have minimum TOEFL score requirements for non-native English speakers. These scores can vary significantly depending on the institution, but generally, you'll find that most colleges require a score of 80 or above on the TOEFL iBT. For highly selective schools, the required TOEFL score may be closer to 100 or even higher.

To find the TOEFL score requirements for any particular college, the best place to start would be that college's admissions website. You can usually find the information under the international student admissions section. If you're having trouble locating the information, don't hesitate to reach out to the college's admissions office directly; they should be more than willing to help.

As for a list of colleges and their specific TOEFL requirements, there is not one centralized resource that lists all college requirements, but websites like CollegeVine have chancing engines that can give you a better understanding of where you stand with your TOEFL score for various colleges. Ultimately, though, always check the individual college websites for accurate and up-to-date information on their TOEFL score requirements. Good luck on your college search!
