The cost of taking the TOEFL in some countries increased this month.  Usually the price increases on August 1, but I think it was hiked on July 1 this season.  Note that some prices were increased on February 1 of this year as well.

A few things stand out:

  • I spotted increases in: Cuba, Ghana, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Iraq, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United States.
  • Note that I only track 62 countries, so I probably missed some changes.  If you want your country added to the tracker (for next time) just leave a comment.
  • Switzerland remains the most expensive country to take the test at $345.  Sri Lanka seems to be the cheapest, at $185.
  • The price has increased in Morocco four times since February of last year.  Same for South Africa.
  • I don’t track China since ETS doesn’t handle the registration, but my sources there indicate that the price remains 2100 RMB, or about $314 USD.
  • I suppose I will check again on August 1 just in case there are further adjustments.

Here’s the master list.  I’ve removed the first two columns, but I have the data if you need it.  All prices are in USD.
