Admission into Mitchell Tech

  • Complete the Admissions application.
  • Send official high school and any post-secondary transcripts to Mitchell Tech. The applicant must be a high school graduate or have an equivalent certificate. Applicants will receive application points based on their cumulative GPA and any math and science classes they have taken. Math and Science class GPAs are also considered.
  • Send ACT scores to Mitchell Tech. Although the scores are not required for your application, providing ACT scores may increase your chances of acceptance. Please contact the Admissions Office if you have questions about the ACT test.
  • Submit an essay, using the guidelines Admissions provides.

When all four items are complete and submitted to the Admissions Office, the applicant’s file will be reviewed and scored with an objective point system. The applicant must meet a target score to move on to the next part of the application. An Admissions Representative will reach out to all applicants after their file is reviewed.

The final part of the application process, after an applicant has met the target score, will be to schedule and complete the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) exam. Here are important things to know about this test:

  • A score of 62% on the TEAS exam is needed to be accepted into the program.
  • Students are allowed three attempts to score a 62% but must wait for a minimum of 30 days in-between tests.
  • The cost of the TEAS is $65 plus tax and is paid by credit/debit card before taking the test.

We recommend high school students apply after completion of their junior year.
