For Fall 2017 admission only-
Hartnell College RN applicants will be allowed to use TEAS V or the new version 6 TEAS test score. However, ALL provisionally admitted students will be required to take the new version of the TEAS at Hartnell College as part of the conditions of admission. This can be your only time you take the TEAS or it may be a repetition. Your highest score on these tests will be used for admission points.
It is highly recommend that students purchase and practice using the TEAS study guide (current VI edition) and use the practice online tests available at www.atitesting. com.
*Hartnell College’s multicriteria screening includes: GPA in relevant course work; life experiences/special circumstance; and, proficiency or advanced level work in language other than English.
Please note! ATI testing is considering limiting the number of times students may take the test to one time in 12 months.
