Infographic: What Score Do I Need on the TOEFL?

Wondering what score you need to achieve on the TOEFL when applying to grad schools in the United States? The test prep pros at Magoosh put together a helpful infographic to help you figure it all out.

If you’re an international student applying to colleges and universities in the United States, you’ve probably asked yourself this question: what TOEFL score do I need to get in? You might have heard that making it to the 100s will guarantee you admission, but you’ve also had friends who reached that score and weren't accepted. Confused yet? We’d be too!

Before you give up hope, our friends at Magoosh TOEFL have good news for you! They’ve just released a new infographic that shows what TOEFL scores you’ll need to get into top graduate schools in the United States. It’s based off their research on the minimum scores required at top schools as well as what other students at those schools score on average. That means you now have a place to start and a goal to aim for when you decide to take the TOEFL. Cue sigh of relief!

CollegeXpress has tremendously helped me in my search for financial aid opportunities as I enter my college career. It is easy to navigate and quickly narrowed down scholarships that I could apply for. Being awarded the scholarship will greatly help me in my finances regarding books and tuition. Thank you for this opportunity. Without CollegeXpress, it would have been more difficult to apply. I would recommend this site to everyone!

I used CollegeXpress to search for colleges. It helped me narrow down the schools on the West Coast and which schools had Construction Engineering programs. I made my decision to go to OSU and I am so excited about it.

CollegeXpress has helped me look at colleges that fit my interests by taking my profile and matching it to colleges that have the programs I'm looking for. It has the ability to connect me to colleges so I can be contacted by them and look at them more in-depth to find what's right for me. Additionally, the scholarship database is super beneficial for getting scholarships for college. Not only does it help lift the financial burden of college but it shows all the opportunities available. Overall, CollegeXpress has been very helpful to me.
