Additional Testing for Selected Health Sciences Programs

A minimum score on the ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is required prior to application to the following health sciences programs: Cardiovascular Technology, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Radiography, and Diagnostic Medical Sonography. The test covers reading, science, math and English.

You may take the ATI TEAS up to three times within a 12-month period, however you must allow 30 days between retakes. The 12-month period begins at the date of a first attempt. The ATI TEAS is administered via computer and takes approximately 3 1/2 hours to complete. Any exceptions require advanced approval by Department Dean. The test is offered at select Assessment Offices for a fee (See Estimated Expenses.)  For more information regarding the steps to take the ATI TEAS, visit https://valenciacollege.edu/teas.
