tsi-logo.jpgWhat is the TSI Assessment?

The TSI Assessment is a program designed to help your institution determine if you are ready for college-level course work in the general areas of reading, writing and mathematics. This program also will help determine what type of course or intervention will best meet your needs to help you become better prepared for college-level course work if you are not ready.

If you are a prospective with interests in attending a Texas college or university and have been advised to take the TSI; you must first complete the free PAA to meet the minimum requirements of Rule §4.55.b of the Texas Administrative Code.
