The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) has been developed by the state legislature* to ensure student success at institutions of higher learning. TSI requires that all incoming students enrolling at Texas public institutions of higher education be assessed academically to determine their level of college-readiness in Reading, Writing, and Math. The two major steps of the program are:
Meeting TSI requirements are required for enrollment. Any assessments that may be required are used for placing students in the appropriate coursework, not for admission purposes.
You will be TSI Exempt, TSI Complete, TSI Not Complete, for Reading, Writing, and/or Math.

Your TSI status is noted on page two of your Advising Report that can be accessed through eConnect.
