The ATI TEAS exam: The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a required test for students submitting an application to RCC's Nursing and Radiologic Technology programs. TEAS is provided by Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI). The ATI TEAS measures basic essential skills in the academic content area domains of reading, math, science and English.

A NEW TEAS EXAM: The current version of the TEAS is called the ATI TEAS. It is the Sixth Edition of the TEAS test. From 2009—August 2016 test takers took the fifth edition of the exam, or the TEAS V. Beginning September 1st, 2016, TEAS V is no longer available.



TEAS results must be dated on or before the application deadline to be considered for admissions.

Required Score: RCC's programs do not have a minimum required score. Please see the Nursing and Radiology applications for admissions criteria.

Retest Policy: Effective Spring 2017: RCC permits test takers to take the exam 2x per admissions cycle (July—March and April—June). We strongly recommend waiting at least 2 weeks before retesting in order to study and maximize chances of improving your score.

Results will automatically be reported to the RCC Admissions Office. To send transcripts to other schools you must order a transcript ($27) through www.atitesting.com.
