TSI (Texas Success Initiative-Entrance Examination)
Summer and Fall Registration and TSI Testing
Currently, CTC’s campus is closed. Students who are required to take the TSI Assessment and have not been able to do so may still enroll in CTC freshman level courses after completing a short self-assessment! The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has generously authorized colleges to invoke the “exceptional circumstances” provision, which allows students to start or continue their college education without the required testing. This option is available through summer 2021. However, students will be required to complete the TSI Assessment by the end of their first semester of enrollment in freshman courses. When the CTC campus reopens, tentative plans (subject to change) are for the Testing Center to provide the TSI Assessment by appointment.
If a student has already taken the TSI Assessment that takes precedence for course placement. Students who have an eligible TSI exemption or waiver will be able to enroll as usual.
If you are unsure of your next steps, please contact an Advisor at EaglesOnCall@ctcd.edu for students located outside the Central Campus area. For Central Campus students, please contact an Advisor at Academic.Advising@ctcd.edu.
The self-assessment material is located at the following links:
Cheating on this self-assessment could result in improper course placement, resulting in failure. Students should take a screen shot or picture of the results to email to Academic.Advising@ctcd.edu or EaglesOnCall@ctcd.edu for placement.
Testing Fee: The nonrefundable testing fee is $25.00 for all or $10 per section. Exact cash is required when paying at the Testing Services office. Individuals are strongly encouraged to prepay at the Business Office, Bldg 119 and bring receipts the day of the test.
We recommend students contact the Guidance and Counseling office for guidance prior to testing.
