TSI Assessment (TSIA)
Students must be in compliance with the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), to enroll in coursework at Texas public institutions of higher education per Texas Education Code. The law requires all entering college students to be assessed for college readiness in reading, writing, and math unless the student qualifies for an exemption or demonstrates college readiness through successful completion of college-level coursework in the related content area. Here is a helpful article to learn more.
