The ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a scholastic aptitude assessment that can be used as one component of the selection process for admitting test takers into the College of Nursing.
The ATI TEAS is composed of 170 questions, 20 of which are unscored pretest items. Thus, the number of scored questions on which individuals will be evaluated is 150. The total time allotted to complete the test is 209 minutes. The test is one assessment comprised of four sections: Math, Reading, Science, and English and Language Usage.
The ATI TEAS allows for the use of a four-function calculator. However, test takers are not allowed to bring their own calculators. A calculator is embedded within the online version of the exam.
Test takers may purchase the ATI TEAS study manual which can be purchased through the ATI online store.
The Division of Continuing Education at UCF is now offering a TEAS Review program.
The UCF Libraries have also provided the following TEAS study resources:
The office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works in collaboration with the University Testing Center (UTC) to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made for students with documented disabilities. Students with disabilities seeking accommodations for placement tests must have approval from the SAS office (407-823-2371 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Note: test-takers should allow at least two (2) weeks for SAS and UTC to process the accommodation request once the formal request has been submitted to SAS.
Once UTC receives notification from the SAS office of a test-taker’s testing accommodations, a UTC staff member will notify the student via email.
Note: Test-takers seeking to test with accommodations like extended time must schedule their appointment time for Monday-Friday before 12:00 PM.
There are two separate payments required per test session:
An ATI Testing account is required for every test-taker who wishes to take an exam at UTC. Test takers who do not yet have an ATI account should navigate to the ATI Testing website, click on Create Account, and complete the user information page.
UCF will be listed under Institution as “U of Central FL Orlando.”
Note: All test-takers must retain/know their ATI Testing username and password in order to access the exam on test day.
Test-takers must review the University Testing Center’s policies prior to test day. Items such as outwear (hoodies, sweaters, jackets, pullovers, cardigans, any form of second layer clothing), watches, and electronic devices are not permitted into the test room. UTC does offer lockers at no additional cost. The full list of UTC policies can be found here.

To reschedule within 7 days, test-takers would need to email a cancellation notice to UTC and schedule a new appointment, including full repayment of the test cost.
