TEXAS SUCCESS INITIATIVE (TSI)
WHAT IS THE TEXAS SUCCESS INITIATIVE (TSI)? The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state legislated program designed to improve student success in college by requiring all students attending public institutions of higher education, unless considered TSI Exempt, to complete the assessment in reading, writing and mathematics before enrolling in classes. Not all incoming students need to take the TSI Assessment. There are many ways you can be exempt. Qualifying for a TSI Assessment exemption means that you can enroll in any entry-level college course without restrictions.
WHAT ARE THE TEXAS SUCCESS INITIATIVE EXEMPTIONS? Entry-level students are exempt if they meet one of the following:
Scored a 23 or higher on the ACT composite and a minimum of 19 on both the English and math tests;
Earned a combined (verbal + math) SAT score of 1070, with a minimum score of 500 on both sections;
Received a TAKS scale score of at least 2200 on the math section and/or 2200 on the English Language Arts section with a writing subsection score of at least 3;
Veterans, active duty personnel, and a student who is serving as and, for at least 3 years preceding enrollment, has served as a member of a reserve component of the U.S. armed services;
Transfer from another institution having satisfactorily completed college-level coursework; or
Enroll in a certificate program of one year or less (Level One certificates) at a public institution.
If you think you may be exempt, please contact an advisor at your college. For a complete list of TSI exemptions, visit www.thecb.state.tx.us/TSI.
