ETS is proud to introduce a temporary test at home solution for test takers in select locations who are unable to take the TOEFL iBT® test and the GRE® General Test at a test center due to public health concerns. TOEFL® testing is scheduled to begin on March 26, and GRE testing will begin on March 27.



The remote proctored solution was developed specifically to address the immediate and urgent testing needs brought about by the coronavirus crisis. It will be deployed until the situation returns to complete normality with regular test center testing. We look forward to test center administrations resuming as soon as possible.

Find more details about the home option and answers to questions you may have on the TOEFL and GRE web pages dedicated to this purpose.
