All applicants are required to complete the most current Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI), standardized Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) prior to application deadlines.

Please note: TEAS tests are scheduled at Metropolitan State University’s St. Paul campus September 1 – January 31, with availability becoming limited as the application deadline approaches. Students are encouraged to plan ahead as space is limited.   You do not need to submit the test results with your application – but you must either indicate that you will be applying to Metropolitan State University or request that your test results be sent to Metropolitan State University.  If you test at a non-MANE testing site, you may be required to pay an additional fee to have the transcript made available to the MANE school(s) to which you apply.
