Taking the TSI Assessment
San Jacinto College uses the TSI Assessment to determine college readiness levels in mathematics, reading, and writing for non-exempt students. The test scores will determine if students are ready for college-level courses or need college preparatory courses. Before attending new student orientation (NSO) and enrolling in courses, students need to take this exam. Testing takes place at the student's campus of choice and can usually be completed in three to four hours. Students need to complete the TSIA Pre-Assessment Activity before going to Admissions for a Testing Request Form.

A student must earn at least three credit hours of course work at San Jacinto College before the College will post transfer credit to the student’s transcript from these examination results.
