TOEFL NO LONGER REQUIRED FOR OTED

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo



The National Board of Certification for Occupational Therapists (NBCOT) recently confirmed that the Test for English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) will no longer be required to complete the Occupational Therapists Eligibility Determination (OTED) process.  In other words, an English fluency exam is not required prior to an applicant's test date.




Applicants should keep in mind that if they want to work in the United States, they will require a Visa Credential Verification Certificate (VCVC) or a Visa Screen at the time of their visa interview.  The visa interview is usually the last step in the immigration process.  The VCVC can be applied for through the NBCOT and the Visa Screen can be applied for through CGFNS.  Federal law requires that before a VCVC or Visa Screen is issued, an English fluency exam must be obtained.  For the VCVC, the minimum passing score for the TOEFL is defined as 89 for the Internet-Based Test, and 26 for the Speaking portion of the test.
