TSI (Texas Success Initiative)

Students attending Texas public institutions of higher education must be in compliance with the Texas
Success Initiative (TSI), as of fall 2003 (Texas Education Code §51.3062) in order to enroll in public
institutions of higher education. The law requires all entering college students to be assessed for college
readiness in reading, mathematics and writing unless the student qualifies for an exemption. Each student
who fails to meet the minimum passing standard of the exam offered by the institution must be placed in a
developmental education program designed to help the student achieve college readiness.
