Before taking the initial TSI Assessment, a student must participate in a pre-assessment activity (PAA). A Certificate of Completion will be printed at the end of this activity, which is required to take the TSI Assessment.
*All incoming college students in Texas are required to take the TSI Assessment, unless exemption has been met. The cost of the TSI Assessment is $29. Any needed retest will also cost $29 (regardless if one part or all). Based on assessment results, you may be eligible to enroll in a college-level course that matches your skill level or placed in the appropriate developmental course to improve your skills in preparation for college-level courses.
