    • It is strongly recommended that waiver-eligible applicants provide ATI-TEAS scores if they have earned below a B- in any science prerequisite course.

    • Applicants must earn satisfactory scores on the ATI-TEAS in order to be eligible for review by the Nursing Admissions Committee.

    • Applicants who achieve an unsatisfactory score or who wish to improve their score may retake this exam only once.
