TEAS Testing

Applicants are required to take the TEAS exam. Applicants must have a 68 or higher TEAS composite score. TEAS results are valid for one year.

The TEAS exam is an ATI exam. Please contact ATI testing, if you have questions regarding the test, fees, prep, etc. 

You do not need to purchase additional transcripts from ATI.  After testing, log in to ATI and download your individual TEAS Performance page. Upload this page with your nursing application. Sending the TEAS transcript to APSU will not exclude you from having to upload a copy when you apply. 

The APSU Testing Center offers the exam year round. Select the link in the red bar to register for a date and time to test.

Arrival: Please comply with the instructions provided by the testing center. Parking and testing information are provided on their website.
