After the TEAS

Minimum TEAS V Scores Accepted for SCF Associate Degree Nursing Program

*Beginning 1/1/16

I have passed all sections of the TEAS. What is the next step?
You may apply to the nursing program during an open application period if all other application requirements are met. Your scores are good for three years.

I was unsuccessful with one or more sections of the TEAS. Can I retake just the section(s) I was unsuccessful with?
No. You must retake the TEAS in its entirety and pass all sections of the exam at the same time. There is no combining of passing scores from different attempts at the TEAS.  There is a waiting period of 90 days between the first and second attempt.

I have been unsuccessful on the entrance exam after two attempts.  When can I take the TEAS again?
A third attempt at the TEAS may occur at least one year from the time of the second attempt.

I have been unsuccessful on the TEAS three times. When may I retake the TEAS?
Students who have been unsuccessful on the TEAS three times must wait three (3) years before retaking the TEAS.

It is highly recommended that you meet with Laurel Ash, ASN Learning Specialist, before retaking the exam. A study guide, “TEAS Pre-Test Study Manual” and an online series of practice exams are available. See “PREPARING FOR THE TEAS” on the SCF nursing web pages for more information.
