The registration process

The TOEFL Junior is a relatively new test, so its deployment is gradually becoming available all over the world. Unlike its “big brother” test, the TOEFL iBT, the TOEFL Junior is not administered exclusively by ETS Global.

The TOEFL Junior program is offered mainly at the institutional level, meaning your school or other learning institution is the body that administers the test to its own students.

There are a limited number of public sessions, where anyone may register to take the TOEFL Junior at an authorized testing center.

Because these provisions are different depending on where you live, you’ll have to contact your local ETS Preferred Associate or the ETS TOEFL Junior Program to find out more about the availability of the tests in your area.

Similarly, the fee to take the TOEFL Junior varies depending on the country, testing center (institutional or public), and is subject to change year-to-year. Reach out to the local ETS TOEFL Junior administering body for up-to-date pricing information.

The registration process

Consent form

As a matter of policy, if you are a minor test-taker, you’ll be asked to submit a consent form that has been signed by your parent/guardian in order to take the test. This form will be provided during the registration process and must be received before you’ll be allowed to sit the test on the test date.

The purpose of the consent form is to grant permission to use all the information you provide may be used by ETS and the TOEFL Junior program for research, development, and marketing operations. This information includes demographic statistics, background information, your answers on the test, and scores. All information is anonymous but is useful for statistical purposes only, i.e. will not affect your score on the test in any way.

Identification document

All TOEFL Junior candidates must present a form of identification before you take the test and on your test day. A variety of valid identification documents is accepted, but the easiest document you can provide is probably a passport in your name.

However, not everyone has a passport, which is especially true for younger test-takers! If you don’t have a passport or other official identification that does not feature your signature and photograph, you may prove your identity by producing an official letter from the school you attend. This letter must have your photograph glued onto it (not stapled), plus the position title, original signature, and official seal of the school administration personnel which must partially cover your glued photograph. These requirements may seem complicated, but this is to ensure the integrity of the testing process. The good news is that this alternative form of identification is valid for test-taking purposes with ETS for one year!

Arrangements for candidates with disabilities

Naturally, TOEFL Junior testing centers and ETS will make reasonable arrangements to accommodate test-takers with disabilities or those with special needs for those with health-related issues.

These accommodations may include extensions to the timed portions of the test, additional break allowances, larger print on paper or the computer screen (depending on the TOEFL Junior version you’re taking), and a variety of other assistance provisions. These are explained in the documentation you’ll receive when you register, or of course, you can contact your local testing center authority for further information about which arrangements can be envisioned to cater to your disability.
