TSI is a state-legislated program designed to improve student success in college. Part of the program is an assessment to determine your basic skills in reading, mathematics and writing.
See exemptions to determine if you are exempt from TSI requirements.
All credit students who are not TSI exempt are required by law to take an assessment test approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB).
