TSI Assessment Requirements
Each undergraduate student who enters TSTC shall be tested or shall present documentation of prior testing for reading, writing, and mathematics skills before enrolling in any course work. Acceptable testing instruments include any assessment instrument approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) for purposes of meeting TSI requirements. Certain students may be exempt from TSI testing requirements; however, these students may not be exempt from local college testing requirements for admission to specific programs or enrollment in certain courses.
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 Testing Office.
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.
