The Hillsborough Community College Nursing AS, Medical Laboratory Science ATC, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging ATC use the Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS®) as a pass/fail tool for applicants to these limited access programs. This test evaluates reading, math, science, and English language usage. The TEAS® Version V is no longer accepted.
Students who score 60 or above on the ATI TEAS® exam will then be ranked by their prerequisites GPA for possible admission into the Nursing Program.
Medical Laboratory Science ATC:
Students who score 60 or above on the ATI TEAS® exam will then be ranked on the combined math and science score for possible admission into the program.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging ATC:
Students who score 60 or above on the ATI TEAS® exam will then be ranked by combined TEAS scores for possible admission into the program.
Students are allowed three attempts per year to achieve a passing score of at least 60, but must wait 30 days between attempts. The calendar date for the year begins January 1. Passing the ATI TEAS® exam does not guarantee placement, but not passing assures that the student will not be accepted into the program.
