Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, most language test centers have closed their doors and scheduled tests have been canceled. Therefore, ETS is offering a TOEFL IBT Special Home Edition test, which is available worldwide, with the exception of mainland China and Iran. The test is available until at least 30 June 2020.

The scores are valid for two years and have to be valid on 1 September 2020.

Certificates from the Institutional TOEFL test, the TOEFL-ITP test, or other language proficiency tests will not be accepted.
