TOEFL® ITP Examination
HELP is licensed to administer the TOEFL® ITP (paper & pencil) by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). The TOEFL® ITP is offered primarily to assist institutions in placing students in English courses at the appropriate level of difficulty or to determine whether additional work in English is necessary before an individual can undertake studies at an institution where English is the medium of instruction. The Undergraduate Admissions Office and the Graduate Admissions Office at UH Mānoa, as well as several community colleges in the UH system, will accept these scores. If you would like to use the score to apply to schools outside of the UH system or on the mainland, please contact those offices and institutions directly and inquire if they will accept the Institutional Paper Test.
