HESI Admissions Assessment Test

TCU Harris School of Nursing administers the HESI Admission Assessment Exam (A2).

We are not able to provide refunds, please carefully select your testing date.

Application deadline to the Accelerated and Traditional BSN program is February 1.

Applicants must submit an A2 score with their application by the deadline. Applicants must test prior to these deadlines in order to submit scores to NursingCAS on time.

TCU requires that students only take the HESI A2 Exam one time during a 12 month period.

It is the student’s responsibility to send in their test scores. This includes if you tested at TCU.

Note: If you are applying to TCU through the NursingCAS application, you will upload your scores in lieu of sending them to TCU. Scores should be entered in your NursingCAS application under the “test” section. In addition, please upload a PDF file of your scores to the “document upload” section of the application. (score report should have bar graph & exam scores).

Testing dates have maximum enrollment of 24 students per session. Please check the registration form for testing date availability. If a testing date does not appear on the registration form it has met its max enrollment.

Scores are available online once the testing session has closed.
