The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) covers math, science, English, and reading comprehension. Applicants must score a minimum of proficient to be considered eligible to apply. The overall grade will be part of the ranking of nursing applicants.
Students may take the TEAS up to three times in the two years prior to the application deadline. Students must wait 60 days between testing dates. Any scores from additional attempts within the two-year period will not be considered. If the TEAS test is taken at a location other than Vol State CC, the student must contact ATI to transfer the TEAS transcripts to the Vol State CC account, before the application deadline.
The TEAS will be proctored and taken online for the 2021 application cycle. Go to the Testing Center and scroll down to “TEAS Assessment for Nursing.” Click the link to schedule a testing appointment.
