Check if you are TSI exempt – The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requires students to be assessed in reading, writing and mathematical skills before enrolling in a Texas public college or university. Students are required to complete the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) assessment tests before enrolling at TAMUK unless exempt. Students are encouraged to take the placement testing before their new student orientation program so they will not miss any of the orientation program or have trouble registering for certain classes.
