Accommodations for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs

ETS is committed to serving test takers with disabilities or health-related needs by providing reasonable accommodations that are appropriate given the purpose of the test. Testing accommodations are available for test takers who meet ETS requirements.

See below for a list of available accommodations for the TOEFL® Essentials test.

Practice Tests

Practice tests that support screen readers and include transcripts and closed captioning are available. We strongly encourage you to use these practice tests so you’re fully aware of the kinds of interactions you’ll encounter in the actual test. If you require practice tests in an alternate format, please contact ETS Disability Services.

Requesting Accommodations

The Bulletin Supplement contains the procedures and forms for requesting testing accommodations. You must use it with the Information Bulletin.

Documentation review takes approximately 6 weeks once your request and completed paperwork are received. If you’re required to submit additional documentation, the review can take approximately another 2 to 4 weeks from the time the new documents are received until the review is complete.

Once you've been approved, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to register for the test. Please wait for your approval email before attempting to make a test appointment.
