What is considered a documented emergency for a TEAS Exam?

A documented emergency for missing a TEAS Exam typically includes situations that are unforeseen and unavoidable. These can include:

  1. Medical Emergencies: This involves sudden illness, hospitalization, or a serious health condition affecting either the examinee or their immediate family members. Official documentation, such as a doctor's note or hospital records, is required to verify the emergency.

  2. Family Emergencies: Events such as a death in the immediate family or a severe family crisis that requires the examinee's immediate attention. Proof might include an obituary, death certificate, or a note from a professional (like a lawyer or counselor) involved in the situation.

  3. Natural Disasters: Situations such as earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, or other severe weather conditions that directly impact the examinee's ability to access the exam or significantly disrupt their living conditions. Evidence might include news reports or a statement from a local authority.

  4. Serious Transportation Issues: Unexpected issues such as car accidents or public transport failures that prevent the examinee from reaching the test center on time. Police reports or statements from transportation authorities could serve as documentation.

In all cases, it's essential to provide official, dated documentation to support the claim of an emergency. The specifics of what is considered a valid emergency and the type of documentation required can vary, so it's recommended to check with the institution or organization administering the TEAS Exam for their specific policies and procedures.
