TSIP stands for Texas Success Initiative Program. All students who enroll in a Texas public institution of higher education must provide evidence of college readiness in reading, writing and mathematics. Those who earn high SAT, ACT, TAKS or STAAR scores may be exempt from taking the initial TSI assessment. For those students who need to take the TSI assessment, a Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA) must be completed before testing. The PAA helps students understand the importance and process of the assessment as well as developmental education course options. Information about the assessment test, the PAA and exemptions may be found at the Texas State TSI Program’s website. You may also call the TSIP Office at 512.245.3942.
