TEAS Assessment for Nursing

Faculty

Submit a request for the Testing Center to proctor midterm and/or final exams for your online class(es) or to arrange a makeup exam for a student in an on-campus class. All exams are proctored in-person and by appointment only. Students must use the campus links listed above to schedule their appointments online.

*IMPORTANT: Please submit all midterm and/or final exam proctoring requests within the first four weeks of the semester, to give the Testing Center time to review all testing windows requested, as well as the number of students expected to test, so that we can determine what the peak exam periods will be and coordinate staffing and extended hours around those dates.

  1. Examinees must schedule a testing appointment in advance, using links posted on the Testing Center website.
  2. Examinees must pay the appropriate test fees, if applicable, before testing.
  3. Examinees must present current, unexpired photo identification for entry into the Testing Center. Photocopies, faxes, and smartphone photos of IDs are not acceptable.

Academic Accommodations and Supportive Resources

Before testing, all currently-enrolled students with disabilities are invited to register for academic accommodations and supportive resources through the Access Center.

Test Security and Academic Dishonesty Policy

The Testing Center supports and adheres to standards for academic honesty outlined in the policy for Student Conduct and Discipline. This policy, along with definitions of academic dishonesty and its consequences, are outlined in the Student Handbook. If a student is observed using unauthorized aids during testing, the Testing Center Staff will:

  • Stop the student’s test and collect the test and all unauthorized aids.
  • Retain the test and all materials as documentation of an invalid test administration.
  • Report the incident, in writing, to the instructor, division dean, appropriate administrator, and/or testing publisher.
  • Inform the student to contact the instructor, if applicable.
