The TEAS V is administered by appointment only (see Testing Times below). Please be aware that computer technology is still imperfect, and occasionally technical difficulties may cause delays in any part of the process, especially related to computer-based tests. Therefore, we suggest that if your test has a deadline, that you take it sufficiently early to allow for scores to be received in time if such difficulties should occur. The Testing Center strives to ensure that tests are administered, scored, and reported accurately, securely, and in as timely a manner as possible, but we cannot be responsible for your deadlines.

If you are taking the TEAS V for admission to the Texas State School of Nursing, click here to see their web page about the test.

ID Requirement

A valid, current photo ID issued by the state of Texas (driver’s license or state ID) or the United States (passport, military ID, permanent resident card, etc.) is required.


Taking the TEAS V will involve payment of at least two fees:

  • $60 administration fee, paid to Texas State University. We prefer payment by credit card, but also accept money order or exact cash. This fee is paid at our service counter on the day of your test. Note: TREC cannot provide refunds for any fees or other payments beyond one week from the date of payment;
  • For TEAS V exam fee information contact ATI at: email at comments@atitesting.com or phone 800.667.7531. The fee (plus tax) is paid online on the day of the exam. TREC does not provide the information about the fee since ATI changes the fee regularly. ATI accepts the following credit cards: MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.
  • Also, if you want to release your TEAS V scores to other institutions besides the School of Nursing at Texas State University-San Marcos, you will pay an additional $27 fee for each additional institution. The fee for additional score reports will also be paid to ATI Testing in the same transaction as your test fee.
