After you complete the math portion of the TSI Assessment, we are ready to guide you on your path to success.

If you scored in the developmental math sequence, your starting point is our Math Developmental Studies

New Math Pathway

Starting Summer 2017, we will offer 2 pathways in mathematics: algebraic and non-algebraic. The path best for you will depend on your major and your transfer institution’s math course requirements.

Now you can save time and money by taking the math courses that fit your studies and career plans.

Check with your advisor and check your transfer institution’s math courserequirements in the Texas Transfer InventoryListen  (PDF will open in a new window).
