The Essential Academic Skills V (TEAS V) Test

(TEAS V Flyer)

With the assistance of health sciences consultants, four categories of health sciences professions were defined. The Essential Academic Skills V (TEAS V) 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 V 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 V as part of the application process.

TEAS V Registration (registration is only available online)

Test is administered in the Continuing Education building. Please make sure you bring a government issued photo ID when you take the test.

Cost of the exam is $81.00.The exam may only be taken once every 6 months.

Review materials are available from ATI Testing.com.
