UVI Announces TEAS Testing Dates for April & May 2018

The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) is pleased to announce testing dates for the TEAS exam. The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is used as part of the admissions process by Nursing and Allied Health schools nationwide. UVI students who desire to enter the School of Nursing are required to sit for the TEAS exam.

It is a multiple-choice assessment of basic academic knowledge in Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English. The four sections are timed for a total of approximately four hours.

On St. Croix, testing will be administered in Room 139 of the Research and Extension Center, located on the Albert A. Sheen Campus. On St. Thomas, the testing site is located at the UVI-CELL Center on the St. Thomas Campus.
