The Institutional TOEFL is an English proficiency exam used to evaluate the English proficiency of people whose native language is not English. The test administered by UTC is the Level 1 (Intermediate to Advanced) TOEFL ITP. This test evaluate skills in three areas:

  • Listening Comprehension measures the ability to understand spoken English as it is used in colleges and universities.

  • Structure and Written Expression measures recognition of selected structural and grammatical points in standard written English.

  • Reading Comprehension measures the ability to read and understand academic reading material.

The Institutional TOEFL score from an administration at the University Testing Center is only reported to the University of Central Florida (UCF). TOEFL ITP test forms should not be substituted for the TOEFL iBT test. Individuals who wish to have score reports sent to other institutions or agencies for admission must take the TOEFL iBT test.

Test Format

The TOEFL ITP is a two (2) hours, paper-based test. All questions are multiple choice and test takers answer questions by filling in a multiple choice answer sheet.

Score Reporting

The Institutional TOEFL score from an administration at the University Testing Center is ONLY reported to and accepted by the University of Central Florida and scores will not be sent to any other institutions or agencies. The Institutional TOEFL is not a substitute for the TOEFL iBT; students who need TOEFL scores for admission to universities and colleges where English is the medium of instruction must take the official TOEFL test. UCF will not accept TOEFL ITP scores from other colleges or universities.

Most UCF programs (undergraduate and graduate) require at least a 550 on the TOEFL ITP for admission. Please contact your academic department for more specific score information.

Candidates individual score reports are available for pick up at UTC approximately two weeks after taking the test. The Test Taker Handbook provided by UTC contains score interpretation information.

TOEFL ITP scores are valid for two (2) years from the test date. Because language proficiency can change considerably in a relatively short period of time, scores more than two years old cannot be reported or verified.
