The ATI TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) measures basic essential skills in the academic content areas of reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage. The objectives accessed on the ATI TEAS exam are those which health science educators deemed most appropriate and relevant to measure entry-level academic readiness of nursing and allied health program applicants.
Individuals seeking enrollment in Health Sciences programs may take the ATI TEAS test on the Appalachian, Canton, Marietta, North Metro, and Paulding campuses. View the Testing Center Schedule for availability.
A remote test option is available for individuals who desire to take the test from their home or chosen location. Individuals must register for a practice test (also known as the dry run). During the dry run, computer hardware, software, and internet speeds must be tested to ensure the test may be successfully completed at the off-campus location. Once the individual successfully completes the dry run and a short practice test, they will receive instructions and code needed to register for the remote test. View the Testing Center Schedule for availability. Visit the TEAS Remote Student Guide for more information.
Note: Please check with an academic advisor assigned to the Health Sciences/School of Nursing programs if you have questions about minimum scores required or about how often you may take the exam. Testing Center staff cannot evaluate scores or determine if you will be admitted to the program.
