Texas Success Initiative (TSI)
Assessment & Testing

Testing NOW AVAILABLE at Texas High School for Grades 9-12

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.

Students must complete the TSI Assessment (TSIA) and meet the college readiness benchmarks by subject area before they can enroll in entry-level college-level courses. Students may also have the option to enroll in college-level coursework with a co-enrollment in a related developmental education course/intervention. TSIA results are available immediately after completion of the assessment and can be emailed to students.
