The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) program is designed to help colleges and universities determine if you are ready for college-level coursework in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. All incoming college students are required to take the TSI Assessment (TSIA2) unless they qualify for an exemption based on their SAT or ACT scores (see FAQs below for exemption information). After high school, based on how you perform on the TSIA2 you may be enrolled in a college-level course and/or be placed in the appropriate developmental courses. Dual credit students may not take developmental courses and must meet the TCC TSIA2 requirements in order to take dual credit courses.
Northwest ISD offers the TSI throughout the year and students may choose to take it online or face-to-face. If you wish to take the TSIA2 please submit the 2021-2022 TSIA2 Voucher Request Form using the link below.
Please note that colleges have varying admissions policies. While NISD is available to help, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to work with their college admissions office to ensure that they meet the enrollment requirements of each college they plan to attend. If you have additional questions about the TSI Assessment or need further guidance, please contact your school counselor, NISD College & Career Readiness, or the admissions and advising office at the college you plan to attend.
