Applicants are required to take and meet required standards for the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) Version V (five).
Prior to taking the test, applicants are required to create an ATI account. They may do this by going to www.atitesting.com, clicking on Create New Account and following the screen prompts. After registering on this site, tester ID # will be displayed under Account Information. At this point applicants are able to print a copy of their ID#. This will serve as admission identification for scheduled test date. No tester will be admitted without bringing with them this ATI ID # and signed photo identification. Testers need to register only once for ATI ID. If you have tested through ATI previously your account is already established and you can access your code.
Test preparation products are available to applicants. Books may be purchased at the school for $45.00. You can also refer to the vendor’s website www.atitesting.com/ati_store/ for product/purchase information. There is an additional charge for these products and classes. Please note we will be using only version 5 of the test.
