For our General Assessment test, we administer the TEAS Computer V version. You do not need to be a CSULB student to take the test at CSULB. You may take the TEAS more than once; however, we require that there must be 30 days between each test date.  We will use the test that yields you the highest rating that meets the 30 day wait requirement.

The TEAS is a 4 hour test of essential academic skills. You will be tested on Reading Comprehension, English, Math and Science knowledge. You will not be allowed to use a calculator during the test.

You may purchase the TEAS Study Guide in the University Bookstore or through  Do not bring the Study Guide to the testing room.

How Can I Study for the TEAS

Here are some websites that can assist you in preparing for the TEAS:


1.   Can I take the TEAS more than once and if I can take it more than once, which score will be used?

You may take the TEAS as many times as you want; however, we require that there must be 30 days between each test date. We will use the test date that yields you the highest rating.

2. When is the TEAS offered?

Multiple TEAS dates are offered January, March/April, June, July August and November. If the TEAS was not taken at CSULB, applicants must arrange to have official TEAS scores sent by to CSULB.

The deadlines are: September 10 for spring admission and February 10 for fall admissions. Please be aware that only TEAS V will be accepted for Spring 2017. So, you must take TEAS V by August 31, 2016.
