Retesting for TEAS:    

While there is no limit to the number of times a student may take the ATI TEAS , only the most current/recent scores will be taken into consideration during the selection process.  If you decide to retest, you must schedule and pay again through ATI.  After you have scheduled, it is important you contact the Testing Center at least 24 hours before your testing appointment. to let the Testing Coordinator know that you are testing for the second time.  Failure to contact the Testing Coordinator will result in your not being permitted to access a test on the day you have scheduled.  You will be required to reschedule and pay the fee again.
