    Hmmm I took the TEAS while back. I have all my transcripts. What else would I need to do?

    You need to have transcripts evaluated, submit FAFSA, get pre-approval for any private loans needed for the program, submit three letters recommendation, turn in your essay, and I think that's all to meet the 18th deadline. After that you're interviewed by the DON.

    I'm pretty sure everyone feels the same way

    I didn't study prior to the TEAS because I was told I didn't have to take it the first meeting (I ended up taking it anyway)- my adviser said they like to know where you're at before you have time to cram, so I'm not sure how they factor in the significance of your TEAS scores.
    Someone who passes every section can not re take the test, however, a person who fails a section can study and retake those sections. I would assume they place some significance on scores where the student didn't need to retake? (at least I'm REALLY hoping for this- I know a few people who retested after the pre-req's and killed it). I have my fingers crossed, regardless I want into this program more than anything.

    My advice is not to stress and maybe invest in both study guides? Good luck!
    Hey there,
    So....I keep hearing some weird things about this school, someone told me that you cannot even enroll in the PREREQs until you've passed all the sections of the TEAS....so how were those people you take to able to 're-test' and 'kill' the TEAS sections they failed?

    Here's the thing- you can't listen to what people say. There are so many rumors about MCI that are untrue. You really need to talk to the adviser you are with- they are wonderful at guiding potential nursing students.

    To answer your question:

    From my understanding, if a student fails a portion of the TEAS that could mean they haven't had the pre-req courses at a college level (Math, Chem, etc..) so they automatically are asked if they would like to enroll in the courses. Again, this is my understanding- an adviser could give you a real answer.

    The other scenario is a person who fails part of the TEAS goes home and studies on their own. I understand many MCI students have some college level education under their belt- after you take the test you sort of know what the material is on making it a lot easier to study.

    From the threads I've read it sounds like you can take the pre-req's before passing all sections of the TEAS. But, I'll say this for a third time: Talk to your adviser. Good luck!

    Hi, I've already spoke to an advisor. That is my source of information about not being able to enroll until sucessfully taking TEAS, so maybe they 'changed their policy'....since the example scenario of taking the needed prereq before part of the teas would be ideal for someone who has never taken college course work yet etc.
    Good luck, and I hope you find out soon for the August start date.

    If your adviser said that I would assume that's the way it is. I always feel stupid when I try to justify what I think happens and then am shut down with the real information
