Testing placement - Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

Under the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), all undergraduate students entering a Texas public institution of higher education must be assessed for readiness to enroll in collegiate-level coursework. The results of the TSI assessment are used to determine your course selections.

If you are an incoming freshman and have not been exempt or granted a waiver, you will need to be assessed through the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment and have your scores sent to the Office of Recruitment and  Admissions:

To learn more about the TSI and its requirements, please visit our Academic Testing web site.

Your test scores or exemptions must be on file with the Office of Recruitment and  Admissions in order to be eligible to attend Orientation and/or register for classes.

TSI-liable students: For the purpose of registration eligibility, it is NOT required that you pass all evaluated portions of the TSI. Our university only requires that you take one of the above-mentioned assessments and have the scores from that assessment on file. Failure on any portion of the assessment will not inhibit your ability to register for Orientation or classes. However, once you enroll at A&M-Corpus Christi, you will be required to take developmental courses until you achieve success on all evaluated areas.
