Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

The purpose of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), mandated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, is to grant institutions of higher education the flexibility and responsibility to improve individualized programs and ensure the success of students in higher education.

New-to-college students are required to take a placement test to determine if developmental courses are needed in reading, writing or mathematics.

All students must meet the following requirements before enrolling in restricted courses:

  • Take a state-approved placement test in reading, writing and math, unless the student qualifies for an exemption, waiver or exception; or,
  • Successfully complete non credit developmental courses to enroll in restricted courses.

The TSI Assessment is the state-approved placement test offered at TCC. Other state-approved assessments include ASSET and COMPASS, offered by ACT. Students must satisfy the minimum passing standards (PDF opens in new window) to satisfy TSI and course prerequisite requirements.
