Is TOEFL required? Does MIT accept IELTS?

TOEFL is not required for any applicant—but for non-native English speakers, we strongly recommend taking the TOEFL in addition to the SAT or ACT if you have been using English for less than 5 years or do not speak English at home or in school, so that we may consider that alongside the SAT or the ACT.

MIT does not substitute for the TOEFL (we do not accept IELTS). There is a minimum score of 90 on the IBT TOEFL.

Beginning in August 2019, TOEFL is making a change to include superscores or “MyBest Scores” on all score reports. We will accept and evaluate these scores the same way we consider superscores for all other tests.
