Texas Success Initiative


Admission Requirements  > General and Freshman Requirements > Texas Success Initiative

 

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) was instituted by the Texas Legislature to ensure that students enrolled in public colleges and universities possess the academic skills needed to perform effectively in college level course work. Entering college students are required to demonstrate their college readiness by meeting established minimum standards on TSI Assessments in math, reading and writing or by demonstrating an exemption for each area. Those students who do not meet these standards are required to enroll in appropriate developmental courses designed to improve their academic skills and prepare them for college level courses.

This Student Informational Brochure (September 2014) provided by the state gives additional information.

See the Undergraduate Student Success Center University of Houston TSI Overview for more information about the Exemption, Testing, and Remediation processes.
