Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

If your primary language is not English, we require you to take the TOEFL exam. Depending on the country, the exam is offered only at selected times and places. It normally takes 4 to 6 weeks for the exam results to be reported to BJU. You should begin planning to take the TOEFL immediately upon expressing interest in BJU.

BJU TOEFL Code: 5065

  • You should include this code on your test registration form so the testing center can send us an official TOEFL score report.
