About the Test for Academic Skills (TEAS)
The TEAS measures your reading comprehension, English skills (such as grammar and punctuation), basic math skills, and science knowledge.
Registration & Fees
Students must have an application for admittance to the Nursing program on file. If not, an application must be turned in before or at the same time as the TEAS registration.
A non-refundable registration fee of $70 must be sent via check or money order payable to Butler Community College and mailed along with the TEAS application to:
Butler Nursing Department

Applicants are responsible for the exam fee which must be paid at the time of test registration.
No telephone registrations for the TEAS will be accepted. A reservation will not be taken without the $70 registration fee or completed application form.
The exam fee is non-refundable. Applicants who do not show up on the date of their schedule exam will be required to pay the registration fee again when rescheduling exam date.
If an applicant wants to apply a TEAS score from another institution, the student must request the scores from the ATI website. There will be a charge for this.
A study guide is available in the Bookstore on both the El Dorado and Andover campuses as well as at the L.W. Nixon Library located in the 600 Building on the El Dorado campus. Students may also purchase the TEAS study guide at the ATI Nursing Education website.
