NEW PREREQUISITE REQUIREMENT: TEAS TEST

A student with a PTA major will be required to take the TEAS as a prerequisite to being enrolled. The exam must be taken after all developmental courses and one biology prerequisite have been completed.

Students with a Bachelor’s degree or Graduate degree in any discipline or an Associate’s degree in a healthcare program from an accredited institution will not be required to take the TEAS. If the student has taken the TEAS V at another institution within the previous five years, these results may be used.

Students must meet with an Academic Advisor PRIOR TO REGISTERING FOR THE TEAS EXAM, to be deemed eligible to take the test.
