At the Tyler Testing Centers, you can sign up and take the following:

  • Placement Testing:

      Due to COVID-19: All TEAS testing will be offered virtually and proctored remotely. Testing resumes in the second week of May (May 10-16). You can schedule here. 

      ATI – the creator of TEAS Exam - is partnering with Proctorio to virtually proctor the TEAS Exam, allowing you to take it from nearly anywhere with a strong internet connection. 

      So how does it work? Proctorio is a remote proctoring platform that uses machine learning to proctor students from wherever they may be. The ATI TEAS Exam with Proctorio offers a variety of secure exam settings including video, audio, and screen recording designed to maintain the integrity of the assessment and ensure uncompromised exam results. For more information about the registration process and what you need to take the test, find more information here.

      During this application period, students will be allowed only two attempts to obtain acceptable scores. Any students who have tested previously can still have 2 attempts as long as they do not exceed the “3 attempts in 3 years” requirement. Students are encouraged to use online resources for TEAS preparation through the JTCC Academic Resource Center and the JTCC library. More information about upcoming virtual TEAS workshops will be posted beginning in May.
