Minimum Test Scores

To enroll in Dual Credit courses, you must present a passing score on the ACT, SAT, TAKS, STAAR or Texas Success Initiative (TSI) test in at least one area (reading, writing or math) as applicable to the course(s).

The TSI test is available at all seven colleges of DCCCD. Contact the Testing Center at the college you plan to attend for more information on scheduling a test.

Please note: If you choose to take the TSI test (because you do not have scores from one of the other tests), you will be required to complete a pre-assessment activity (PAA) before testing.

Our catalog lists the minimum passing standards for the TSI test.
