TEAS

About the TEAS

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is used as part of the admissions process by nursing schools nationwide. Our test center accepts students who are applying to any nursing program, including SJSU.

You MUST first register for an account on the ATI website and obtain an ATI Paper/Pencil ID before you register for the test. Our center ONLY administers the paper-based version of the TEAS VI. Calculators are provided.

SJSU will offer the TEAS VII beginning in June 2022.

The TEAS VII consists of 170 questions across 4 content areas: Reading (64 minutes), Mathematics (54 minutes), Science (63 minutes), and English (28 minutes), for a total of 3 hours and 29 minutes. Total test time is 4.5 hours.

Candidates will be assigned randomly to either a 8:00am or 1:30pm start time. You will receive your reporting time, room assignment, and instructions via e-mail about 3-5 days prior to the test. Please plan accordingly.

Who needs to take the TEAS?

  • ALL SJSU nursing applicants, prior to applying

The TEAS is offered several times per year. Take the TEAS early to ensure your scores are posted ahead of any registration or application deadlines. Scores are released on the ATI website 7-10 business days after the test.
