  • What if only one portion of the TSI Assessment is needed?  If the student has met a partial exemption and only needs to test a portion of the TSI Assessment to meet the state requirement, a Testing Referral Form may be obtained from an advisor for the needed portion.
  • Are calculators allowed for the TSI Assessment?
    No calculators are allowed to be brought in to the testing room.  A calculator is provided within the testing program, as appropriate.
  • What happens if I do not pass all three sections of the TSI Assessment?
    Student who initially fail to be placed at college level on a portion of the TSI cannot take a college-level course in the failed subject area until they complete the required developmental courses and/or retest. Dual credit students are not permitted to take developmental courses while in a high school program.
