Placement Testing

Please Note

Prior to registering for classes, students must provide information to document their Texas Success Initiative (TSI) exemption or compliance. This can be done by testing on campus, providing official test scores, or providing documentation of exemption.

San Jacinto College uses the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) exam to determine college readiness levels in math, reading, and writing. Your test scores will determine if you are ready for college-level courses or need preparatory courses. The untimed exam is NOT pass or fail.

Do you need to take the exam? Some students are exempt from placement testing. Do you have an associate degree or higher? Are you an active-duty military service member or an honorably discharged veteran? Did you take another test such as the SAT, ACT or TAKS and make a qualifying score?
