International students only: If your first language is not English and your school curriculum is not delivered in English, we require you to submit an English proficiency exam score from the TOEFL, IELTS, Duolingo, or Cambridge C1/C2.

The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is an exam that measures the English language ability of non-native speakers.

Most successful applicants score above 100 on the TOEFL exam, above a 7 on IELTS, and above a 120 on Duolingo. Dartmouth College does not "superscore" the TOEFL. Superscoring is when the highest section scores across all of the dates that a test was taken are considered. In Dartmouth's selection process, the Total Score is considered. If the applicant has taken the TOEFL multiple times, only the highest Total Score will be considered.
