    Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSI)
    All students entering Texas’ public colleges and universities must take the TSI Assessment prior to college enrollment. Any student who plans to take a dual credit class their junior or senior year must complete the TSI Assessment or an equivalent exam before enrollment. The TSI Assessment provides information about the student’s skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. If a student does not pass all three parts, he/she must take remediation classes until he/she successfully completes that section of the test. Once a student passes a section of the test, he/she does not have to take that section of the test again. For more detailed information about the TSI Assessment, see your counselor, or go to www.thecb.state.tx.us/DE/TSI
