The TEAS Test is available for Harper College students only. The TEAS test is used for entrance in the Nursing (RN), Practical Nursing Certificate, Dental Hygiene, Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Physical Therapist Assistant and Radiologic Technology programs. It is the student's responsibility to adhere to each program's admission requirements, which are subject to change.
The TEAS test is a computer-based test that contains four sections: Reading, Math, Science and English & Language Usage.
The maximum standard test time allowed for the entire test is 209 minutes. For students that receive test accommodations such as extended time on a test, please refer to the "TEAS Testing with Accommodations" section for below.
Exam registration, payment and taking the exam all occurs directly through the ATI website (ATI is the "parent company" of the TEAS test). Below are the steps for taking a TEAS Test from start to finish.
Step 1 - Create an ATI Account. There are 7 Steps in the process of creating an ATI Testing account. Most of the steps are biographical questions, but all of them are critical to ensuring Harper can match your scores to your student account. For Step 5, choose Harper College AH (the "AH" stands for Allied Health) as your "Institution." This will ensure your scores are automatically received by Harper. More information about how to create an account can be found here.
Registration Note: It is VERY IMPORTANT that you select Harper College AH as your receiving institution when creating your ATI account. One free transcript is included in your ATI TEAS exam registration and this will ensure that Harper receives your scores after you take the test.
Step 2 - Choose Where you Want to Test. You will have 3 choices for locations where you can test.
Step 3 - Register and Pay for the exam. The TEAS test costs $120.00, per attempt. Click "Continue Registration" at the bottom of the Registration screen, even if you're not purchasing any additional score reports.
