When we offer the TEAS: Wake Tech is not offering the TEAS test at this time. Students will need to schedule to take the TEAS test through ATI.

Students with Disabilities:  If you have a condition that may warrant special testing conditions that include but are not limited to visual, hearing, physical impairments and learning disabilities, please coordinate any required accommodations through ATI.

TEAS Retest Policy: If you need to retake the TEAS exam, you must wait a minimum of 30 days from your last exam date to retest.  Only two tests are allowed per calendar year.  Official copies of ALL previous ATI TEAS test scores within 3 years of the clinical application deadline are required to be on file with the college prior to taking the exam at Wake Tech.  

Sending official scores from another school or facility:  If you have taken the TEAS exam at another college or facility, you will need to send your scores directly from ATI testing.  We do not accept printed out scores.  In order to request your scores, you will visit Atitesting.com, log-in, select online store on the top, then select TEAS transcript.  We highly advise students to contact ATI testing if they need assistance with sending scores. Also, make sure the test follow the requirements below:

  • Exam was completed within 3 years of the deadline
  • Exam has all 4 sections to the test (Reading, Math, Science and English) 
  • Either ATI TEAS (version 6) or TEAS 5 
  • Only your first or second attempt in a calendar year.  If you have multiple attempts, they must be at least 30 days apart from one another. 

You are welcome to email the Health Sciences Admissions and Advising team at [email protected]  if you have questions before sending your scores.  

Scoring and Point award: TEAS points at Wake Tech are based on the Composite score, not by the Total Individual Score that is printed on score sheets.  The composite score is an average of an applicant’s reading, math, science, and English and language scores.  Applicants may take TEAS multiple times and their highest score in each area will be used in calculating the Composite score. Note that TEAS scores are reported as percentages, in decimal format (e.g., 70.5%). TEAS scores will be rounded up or down to the nearest whole number (.4 or lower will be rounded down; .5 or higher will be rounded up).
