What International Students should know about the TOEFL
Universities around the world require international students to prove their proficiency in English by passing the TOEFL exam. Here, at Framingham State University (FSU), we will help you reach your educational goals by helping you to improve your TOEFL test scores for both the institutional exam (PBT) and the internet-based exam (iBT).
Framingham State University has been offering students the Institutional TOEFL (PBT) exam at the end of each semester for many years. We expect to be ready to offer the iBT exam by fall semester 2012. Until that time, we have courses to prepare students to take either exam.
To register to take the iBT, visit the Educational Testing Services website at www.ETS.org. Students can find a testing site near them.
New this Summer! Two in-depth classes to prepare students for the TOEFL Exam
Register for one or both of these classes on the Intensive ELP website.

This intensive class is designed to assist students preparing for the Institutional TOEFL, the paper-based version (PBT). During this class, students will learn skills to improve reading comprehension, listening techniques and advanced grammatical structures which are tested on the exam. Students will also learn test-taking strategies and have ample opportunity for practice and review. This course meets M-W-F, 12:30-2:30pm.
