Assessment and Testing Requirements
Before enrolling at TSTC, all students must either present scores on an approved Texas Success Initiative (TSI) test, or present proof that they are exempt from the TSI requirements. Additional placement testing may be required for entry into specific courses or programs.
Students who are not exempt from TSI requirements and who do not obtain passing scores on the appropriate tests must adhere to the following.
Students who enroll first in a Level I Certificate program and then change to a Level II Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science Degree program must meet the requirements of the new program.
Before receiving an associate degree, all students must complete TSI requirements as specified in the TSTC Texas Success Initiative Plan. In general, students may meet TSI standards by completing the capstone developmental education courses with a grade of C or better in the skill areas of reading, writing, and mathematics or by re-testing and passing an approved TSI test. Additional information regarding TSI completion requirements may be obtained from the Center for Assessment located in the Student Services Center.
