Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) Testing
The TEAS test is an admissions test used for admittance into most, but not all, healthcare programs. You can take the TEAS test at Central Piedmont if you are applying to a Central Piedmont program or if you are applying to another school.
The TEAS consists of reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage sections. Each section is timed. The total time for the test is three and a half hours hours.
Due to the difficulty of the test and competitive nature of the programs, it is recommended that you speak to an academic advisor or healthcare program faculty member to make sure TEAS is right for you. Use the healthcare career field page to explore programs and to learn which programs require the TEAS test for admission. The minimum TEAS score you need to achieve for admission varies by program. Please take your time exploring the programs.
It is your responsibility to review and understand the information on this page carefully. Scheduling more than one test within a three month period will result in the latest appointment(s) being canceled.
