  2. A letter addressed to the Director of Nursing must accompany the application. Information regarding the content of this letter can be found in your Nursing Student Policy Book under “Readmission.”
  3. As a former student, all your transcripts should be on file. However, if you have attended another college or university since leaving the Nursing program, you must submit official transcripts to proceed in the readmissions process.

Once your application file is complete, it will be reviewed by the Admissions Office.

TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) Requirement:

All qualified applicants will be required to submit valid TEAS results.  If you have taken the TEAS within the past 2 years, you are encouraged to submit those scores with your application. The TEAS must be valid through the deadline date for the semester for which you are applying (see above).   If you have not taken the TEAS or your test has outdated, you will be eligible to take the test here at Forsyth Tech.  You will receive information regarding testing sessions once your file is complete and has been reviewed for eligibility.

The Admissions process and TEAS testing must be completed by the deadlines specified above. There will be NO exceptions.  It is important that you plan ahead to allow for time to complete the TEAS by the deadline.

Once your file is complete, it will be sent to the Director of Nursing for review.  The Director of Nursing will make the final determination in regards to readmitting applicants.
