All applicants are required to complete the most current Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI), standardized Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) prior to application deadlines.
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 at the time of testing, 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 will need to request transcripts be sent to Metropolitan State University prior to the application deadline. You can make this request by calling ATI at 1-800-667-7531 and speaking to a Client Care Specialist. Students who request transcripts to be sent will be charged a fee from ATI.
