TEAS (Health Science Tests)
The Test for Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a computerized diagnostic instrument to help evaluate academic skills of new applicants to several of HGTC Health Science programs, as an admissions requirement or an option for admission.
The TEAS is a 4-hour computer-based test that covers Reading, Math, English, and Science, with an additional 30 minutes for a dry run prior to the exam. The test is remote (taken at home) on Tuesdays at 9:00 am and on Thursdays at 12:00 pm.
