Associate Degree Nursing
TEAS Information
(ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills)

What is the ATI TEAS?

Shasta College Associate Degree Nursing Program applicants are required to take the Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS) as part of the admission multi-criteria due to regulations by the California State Chancellor's Office. The ATI TEAS measures basic essential skills in the academic content areas of reading mathematics, science, English, and language usage.

The Chancellor of the California Community colleges requires an individual minimum composite score of 62% on ATI TEAS. Scoring 62% or above indicates that you have the entry level academic skills necessary for successful completion of the nursing curriculum. The Shasta College ADN program will only accept official results submitted directly to the college directly by ATI. Only the most current version of the ATI TEAS is accepted. The success score for the ATI TEAS exam is subject to change based on the State Chancellor’s requirements.

What do I do if I did not meet the ATI TEAS success score of 62.0% or above?

If your score on the ATI TEAS exam did not meet the state mandated minimum success score, you will need to meet with the ADN program director to develop your remediation plan. You must contact the Health Sciences Division to develop your remediation plan within 90 days of receiving your test results. The remediation plan must be completed within one calendar year to be eligible to retake the ATI TEAS exam with a passing score and remain eligible for admission into the program.

ATI TEAS retake policy:  The applicant may retake the test only once (after completion of the remediation plan). Additional TEAS attempts taken with the intent to raise an applicant's score are not accepted.

How do I schedule a remediation appointment?

In order to schedule your remediation appointment, please email the Health Sciences Division at  Be sure to include your full name, phone number, student ID number, and location where you took the test.  If you took the TEAS anywhere besides Shasta College, please contact ATI TEAS and have an official transcript sent electronically to Health Sciences prior to contacting the division.​
