Texas Success Initiative
Based on The Texas Education Code statute 51.3062, Success Initiative, effective September 1, 2003, Tarleton State University is required to assess the academic skills of each entering undergraduate student to determine the student's readiness to enroll in freshman-level academic coursework. However, the University will not use the assessment or the results of the assessment as a condition of admission to the institution.
Unless exempt (see Texas Success Initiative Plan for a list of current exemptions), the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) requires that, prior to enrollment, each student must be assessed in three skill areas (reading, writing, & mathematics) using one or more instruments approved by the THECB.
TSI assessment results and/or proof of exemption must be submitted to the Student Assessment Coordinator's office before a student will be allowed to register for classes.
If you should have any questions concerning exemptions, please contact Undergrad Admissions.
