Academic Testing and Assessment

As part of our commitment to your academic success, the College requires that all incoming students demonstrate preparedness for college-level coursework.

Nursing Majors

All incoming nursing students are required to complete the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) which measures essential skills in the academic areas of reading, mathematics, science, and English. The TEAS is commonly used by nursing programs nationally. This test will be available to be taken at the college on Saturday April 25th or Saturday May 9th.

Other Majors: ALEKS

ALEKS Mathematic Placement Assessment is a Web-based assessment and learning system. Mount Saint Mary College requires an ALEKS mathematics placement assessment to determine readiness for various courses. The ALEKS Placement Assessment covers material from basic math through precalculus, and will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. Students required to take this assessment can do so online.
