Incoming Student Requirement

The Texas Success Initiative has been developed by the state legislature to ensure student success at institutions of higher education. TSI requires that all incoming students enrolling at Texas public institutions of higher education be assessed academically to determine their level of college-readiness in Reading, Writing, and Math.

Meeting TSI Requirments 

This program is required to register for classes at UTA. Steps of the program include:

Step 1.

Assessment of each student's academic skills in reading, writing, and math before registering for classes.

Step 2.

Advisement into appropriate developmental coursework for any academic skills that need improvement.

Have questions?

The Universities Advising Center helps students determine whether they need to take an assessment, if they meet any TSI exemptions, and helping students know when developmental coursework will be required at UTA.
