Do I need to retake TOEFL?

Post by smehdi » Sat Oct 05, 2019 7:15 pm

Hello Everyone,

I took Toefl in mid 2017. I got admission into a US University for fall 2018 in MS program. So, I have been here for more than a year. In the meantime I have worked as TA and will complete my MS in spring 2020.

I will start applying for PhD in US universities for fall 2020. My toefl score expired in mid 2019.

Now my question is do I need to sit for toefl again when I am applying for PhD?

As far as I know, a lot of universities can exempt the English test scores as long as you were studying at an English taught program for at least a year(sometimes it can be 2 or 3 years). The best way to know is to check their FAQ and/or directly contact them by email. You, most probably, don't have to retake the exam.
