The math portion covers whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions and decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportion. Reading includes paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, and references/conclusions. English covers knowledge of punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words, and spelling. Science covers science reasoning and knowledge, biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, basic physical principles, and general science.

Registration and Payment

TEAS is offered daily by appointment only. You must register and pay the administration fee in advance.

Two separate payments are required to register for the TEAS:

  • One payment goes to FSU for administering the test. For current Florida State University students, a payment of $12 is payable by FSUCash only. For non-FSU students, a payment of $15.50 must be made online when making an appointment. This payment is non-refundable.
  • The other payment is made directly to ATI testing via credit card only at the testing station on exam day. There may also be additional fees for each requested score report. For any additional fees or charges, please refer to the ATI website.

On the day you take your test, present two forms of identification when you arrive. Students may not test without proper identification.

  • One must be a government-issued photo ID with a signature (e.g.: Driver's License, passport)
  • The other must have either a photo or signature (e.g., Military ID, SS Card).

Please review our Testing Center Rules before arrival.
