Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

Section 51.3062 of the Texas Education Code establishes the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) program as a requirement at all Texas institutions of higher education. The purpose of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) program is to ensure that students enrolled in public colleges and universities possess the academic skills needed to perform effectively in college level course work. TSI includes an examination designed to provide diagnostic information about the reading, mathematics, and writing skills of each student.

Students will demonstrate their college readiness in reading, writing, and mathematics either by taking the three respective TSI Assessments or by demonstrating an exemption for each area.

Please see the Undergraduate Catalog for information on requirements and exemptions.
