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 atitesting.com.  Do not bring the Study Guide to the testing room.

TEAS FAQs

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 atitesting.com to CSULB.       

3.  What is the deadline for the TEAS results? 

The deadlines are: September 10 for spring admission and February 10 for fall admissions.

4. Do I pay for Parking?

A campus day pass to park in general parking slots is $7.00. The parking payment machine will take cash and credit/debit cards. Since TEAS testing takes 3.5+ hours, you will need to pay for a day pass. There should be plenty of parking in Lot 1 which is west of the Nursing Buidlings.
