Self-Reported Test Scores

You can self-report your Standardized Test scores or report tests you plan to take in the Standardized Tests section. Some of the programs you apply to may require you to report certain test scores; be sure to check with your programs to ensure you are completing all requirements.

Note that self-reporting your scores is not the same as providing official scores to your programs. If your programs require official test scores, see Sending Official Test Scores for more information.

  2. Find the test you took in the list and click Add Test Score. In some cases, you may only be able to enter scores for certain tests.

Submitting Your Official TOEFL Scores

Go to http://www.ets.org/toefl and request your scores be sent to BU School of Social Work using code #3087. It takes approximately 10-12 business days from the date you make the request to post to your application. 

Make sure that the name and date of birth on your application match that on your TOEFL exam; otherwise, your scores will not automatically post to your account. If you believe there may be a discrepancy, wait until ETS processes the scores, then contact application support so they can manually connect the scores to your application. 

Note that your application will not be delayed if you haven't yet taken the TOEFL. Your programs can view your scores once they are received. Note, however, that some programs may require scores be posted by a specific date; check with your programs to ensure you meet all deadline requirements. 

Submitting Your Official IELTS Scores

Official IELTS scores must be provided to BU School of Social Work directly from IELTS in paper format. You must contact IELTS to have your scores released to BU School of Social Work. When you sit for your test, add BU School of Social Work as one of the institutions you would like your score report released to. Use the following address:

BU School of Social Work Test Scores
PO Box 9202
Watertown, MA 02471
