International students who wish to study at an American college or university will probably need to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Most institutions will set a minimum score requirement that international students must meet in order to be admitted.
TOEFL iBT Preparation Class
Students in our Intensive English Program may choose to take a TOEFL preparation course in their class schedule. The course includes hands-on practice in our computer lab. Students may also use program tutors to help them prepare for the test.
Internet-Based TOEFL (iBT) Administration
The Monterey Institute is no longer an administration site for the TOEFL iBT. The closest administration sites are in Santa Cruz and San Jose. Detailed information about TOEFL iBT is available from the ETS website.
Students who are applying for admittance to the Monterey Institute should report their TOEFL iBT score directly to the Admissions Office. Our four-digit institution code is 4507. A department code is not required.
Institutional TOEFL Administration
As of August 2008, the Monterey Institute no longer administers the Institutional (paper-based) TOEFL.
