Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)

The TEAS is required of all applicants to the BSN, ABSN and ELMSN programs at SMU.  Scores are used as part of the admission review process and must be available when you apply for admission.  Any version of the TEAS is acceptable. 

The TEAS exam is administered by a company called Assessment Technologies Institute or ATI.  The actual  computer exam is given at a PSI Testing Center.  Samuel Merritt University does not administer the TEAS.

Please plan ahead to make sure that you will be able to take the TEAS prior to the application deadline for the program for which you are applying.  There is space on the BSN, ABSN, and ELMSN applications for admission for you to self-report your TEAS scores and the date taken.
