How to Sign-up for the TEAS VI Nursing Pre-Admission Examination

Prospective students wishing to apply to the nursing programs at Carl Sandburg College will be required to take the TEAS VI examination.

  1. Students must schedule a time to meet with their program advisor to determine their eligibility for the exam.

  2. When approved to sit for the TEAS VI exam, your advisor will provide you with a registration form (two page form- white/yellow) that list the available test dates.

  3. To register for the Nursing Pre-Admission exam, TEAS VI, complete and return the form, along with a check for $60, payable to Carl Sandburg College to the Business Office Cashier (E-101).

  4. The Business Office will stamp that your payment has been received. The white copy will be returned to the student and the yellow copy will be retained for in-house use.

  5. Note:  You must be pre-registered prior to taking the test. Fifteen registrations will be accepted for each test date.  Walk-ins will not be permitted.

  6. The TEAS V is administered through A.T.I. (Assessment Technology Institute), via computer. Therefore, your next step is to create an account on the ATI website:  At this time, you are not registering for a test; you are only creating a username and password that you will need in order to take the exam.  It is very important that students keep their newly created ATI username and password in a safe place; as this information will be required for the day of testing or needed in the event that one would have to register for a retake of the exam. This process must be completed prior to sitting for the exam.

  7. In order to be admitted to the testing session, students will be required to present a valid photo I.D. and their ATI username/password to the test proctor in charge.

  8. Upon completion of the exam the student will receive a copy of their results. Students must meet with their program advisor to confirm that all the test scores meet the minimum eligibility requirements.
