You may take the TEAS up to three times within a 12-month period, and you must allow 30 days between retakes. The 12-month period starts at the date of a first attempt. The TEAS is administered on the computer and takes approximately 3 1/2 hours to complete. The test is offered in the Assessment Offices on East, Lake Nona, Osceola, West and Winter Park campuses. To take this test, you must have a Valencia Application for Admission on file, an ATI account, and you must pay the examination fee. (See Estimated Expenses.)
