Texas Success Initiative
Under the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), undergraduate students entering Texas public institutions of higher education must be assessed for readiness to enroll in entry-level academic coursework. Unless exempt from TSI, all entering students must have scores on file for the Texas Success Initiative Assessment prior to initial registration at UTSA:
Test results are accepted when submitted directly to UTSA by the testing company or listed on a student’s official academic transcript from a previously attended institution.
Prior to taking the Texas Success Initiative Assessment, all non-exempt students are required to participate in
pre-assessment activities (PAA).
Note: Effective August 26, 2013 the following tests can no longer used to satisfy TSI requirements: Accuplacer, Compass, Asset, and THEA. The only state approved test that may be used to satisfy TSI requirements is the TSI Assessment Test.
