The Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) Test
With the assistance of health sciences consultants, four categories of health sciences professions were defined. The Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) test is a multiple-choice assessment of basic academic knowledge in reading, essential math, basic science, and English and language usage. The objectives assessed on the TEAS are those which health sciences educators deem the most appropriate and relevant to measure entry-level skills and abilities of program applicants. This allows St. Philip's College to have the pertinent information needed to make normative comparisons.
All programs, except Phlebotomy, require students to take the TEAS as part of the application process.
TEAS Registration (registration is only available online)
The test is administered in the Center for Health Professions (CHP) building, room 301. Please make sure you bring a government issued photo ID when you take the test.
Cost of the exam is $91.00 + tax (price may change). The exam may only be taken once every 6 months.
Review materials are available from ATI Testing.com.
