Get a TSI Waiver

If you are interested in earning one of our Certificates of Completion, you must provide the Registrar's office with a Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Waiver for HART Certificate Programs (PDF will open in a new window). Otherwise, you might have to take a placement test because no core curriculum courses are required.

Note: When you have a TSI waiver, you may enroll only in courses included in your certificate program.

Also, if you are pursuing a 1-year certificate of completion of no more than 42 hours, you are temporarily relieved of remediation requirements of the TSI.

If you do not have a High School diploma or a GED and need individual approval, you might have to take a placement test.
