TSI Assessment


Angelina College is a closed TSIA center. The testing center only administers TSIA to Angelina College students.

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state-mandated program that applies to all students enrolling in Texas public colleges and universities for the first-time. Students are required to take the TSI assessment to demonstrate college readiness, if they are not exempt. The exemptions include:

1.) Achieved at or above the state exemption scores on ACT, SAT, TAKS, or STAAR End of Course (EOC).

2.) Earned an associate or baccalaureate degree.

3.) Completed college-level coursework at a private or independent institution of higher education or an accredited out-of-state institution of higher education.

4.) Attended any institution previously and has been determined to have met readiness standards by that institution.

5.) Serving on active duty as a member of the armed forces of the United States, the Texas National Guard, or as a member of a reserve component of the armed forces of the United States and has been serving for at least three years preceding enrollment.

6.) Honorably discharged, retired, or released from active duty as a member of the armed forces of the United States or the Texas National Guard or service as a member of a reserve component of the armed forces of the United States.

7.) An institution may exempt a non-degree-seeking or non-certificate-seeking student.

The TSI Assessment is an instructional program designed to enhance the success of students in college-level courses. The program promotes the early diagnosis of basic skills in reading, mathematics (algebra & statistics), and writing, and mandates programs to ensure the success of students in higher education.

Based on how you perform you may either be enrolled in a college-level course that matches your skill level or be placed in the appropriate developmental course or intervention to improve your skills and prepare you for success in college-level courses.


Before you take the TSI Assessment, you must participate in a Pre-Assessment Activity. Upon completion of the PAA you must register and pay for the assessment by midnight on the day which you complete your online registration.

NOTE: REGISTRATIONS NOT PAID BY MIDNIGHT WILL DROP FROM THE SYSTEM, AND YOU WILL NOT HAVE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE ASSESSMENT.
