A step-by-step guide to registering for the TEAS.
Several test-taking methods are offered, but the TEAS is always proctored and always the same exam, no matter the setting. Explore your test taking options, then follow the steps below to register.
STEP 1. Check admissions requirements. CLC accepts TEAS scores via any testing method, there is no specific deadline as students are admitted on a rolling basis, and we do not limit the number of student attempts.

In-Person – Proctored at an Institution. On-campus exam at an institution with an in-person proctor.
TEAS Online – Proctored by ATI. Online exam only with a remote proctoring service from ATI.
STEP 3. Choose your test date, time, and location. Select the test date and time that works best for your schedule. One transcript is included with your registration. If not testing at CLC be sure to inform us once testing is complete.
