Students with Disabilities:  Please do not register for TEAS via the ATI testing webpage 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 contact our Disability Services office at 919-334-1510 and present documentation.  IF accommodations are approved, Disability Services will coordinate with the TEAS administrator to schedule the test.

When we offer the TEAS: We only test for TEAS April-July and October-January.  We do not offer TEAS February, March, August or September.

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.  This rule applies regardless of the school the test was taken. 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.  If you plan on retesting, you will be tested on all 4 sections. We no longer offer exams with certain sections.

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). Examples of scores are shown in the PowerPoint presentation above.
