The state of Texas and UT Arlington have certain requirements that must be met before students can enroll in classes. All testing requirements should be completed before attending orientation to ensure no delays when registering for classes. Please see below for more details on the specific testing requirements

Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

All students are required to complete the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) prior to enrolling, as stipulated by the State of Texas.  Many students have satisfied this requirement with ACT, SAT, or TAKS scores, which may have been submitted on your transcript. Veterans can satisfy this requirement by submitting a copy of their DD-214 form to the University Advising Center located in Ransom Hall.

If you have questions about your TSI status please contact Adriane Jones, TSI Advisor in University College at 817-272-0883 or visit the TSI website.
