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 freshman-level academic coursework. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved the following four testing instruments to be used to determine students’ readiness to enroll in college level courses:
1. Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA)
(A student needs to select and take only one of the above TSI approved assessments to meet the requirements of TSI.)
Unless exempt from TSI, students must have scores on file at UTSA for one of these testing instruments 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.
