TOEFL scores also evaluate the English proficiency of people for whom English is not the native language. It is a prerequisite for admission to various Undergraduate, Graduate and Post Graduate programs around the world, which require students to demonstrate their ability to communicate in English as an entrance requirement.

Non-native English speakers at the 11th grade level or above should take the TOEFL test to provide evidence of their English proficiency, before beginning academic work.
