Update:  ETS now has an official list of accepting schools, so I will retire this page!

Okay, it begins!  On this page I will list the schools that accept and do not accept the TOEFL Essentials Test.  Keep checking back for updates.  I will  maintain this list until ETS makes their own.  When that happens I will post a link.  

If there is a school you want to know about leave a comment down below and I will contact them in August.

I’m pretty sure that the NABP will not accept the test.

Edit: I’ve bumped this post to the front of the blog to highlight all of the recent additions.
