The Texas Success Initiative Assessment 2.0 (TSIA2) is a series of placement tests for students enrolling in public colleges and universities in Texas. The tests help Texas schools determine whether you’re ready for college-level courses in English language arts and reading (ELAR) and mathematics.
If you’re not ready for college-level courses, the tests help determine what types of courses or intervention will best prepare you for college-level work. You take TSIA2 tests on a computer and will receive your results immediately after you finish the test.
Victoria College Adult Education, offers Pirate Prep. This is a free class for current or incoming Victoria College students who would like to prepare for college enrollment, and/or increase skills for the TSIA2 exam.

Not all Texas college students have to take TSIA2. If you’ve met college readiness standards on a standardized test like the SAT or successfully completed a high school college preparatory course, you may be exempt. See details below.
Before taking the TSI Assessment 2.0, the Pre-Assessment Activity must be completed. TSIA2 candidates should email completion certificate to the Testingcenter@VictoriaCollege.edu, listing PAA Completion Certificate in subject line. Gonzales students will email to GonzalesTestingCenter@VictoriaCollege.edu.
A valid, current photo I.D. is required for all testing (Driver's License, Passport, Military ID, Tribal ID, or a State/National/Province ID). For the TSIA2, a school issued ID is also acceptable. If you do not have a government issue or school ID, please complete the Accuplacer Student ID Form.
