TSI Assessment

Due to the developing COVID-19 situation, everyone entering VC buildings will be expected to wear a facial covering and participate in a basic health screening, which includes a temperature check. If you are testing on campus, be advised that our Testing Center is routinely disinfected and we are following social distancing and reduced occupancy guidelines. Testers are advised to follow all CDC, federal, state and local government regulations and guidelines. 

The VC Testing Center is now offering the TSI Assessment via remote testing as well as in person testing at our Testing Center. View full details on our remote testing options. Starting September 1, 2020, students are responsible for the $25 Examity proctoring fee. This additional fee is paid separately and is not associated with the Victoria College $12 TSIA exam fee. Students are responsible for the standard $12 TSI Assessment fee. Scheduling for all test options is done online, as detailed below. If you have any questions about the options available to you, contact the Testing Center at (361) 582-2589 or TestingCenter@VictoriaCollege.edu.

The TSI Assessment (TSIA) is part of the Texas Success Initiative program designed to help determine if you are ready for college-level coursework in the general areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. It will also help determine what type of course or intervention will best meet your needs to help you become better prepared for college-level coursework if you are not ready. All first-time college students must take the TSI test before enrolling in classes, unless you are exempt or complete.

Before taking the TSI Assessment, the Pre-Assessment Activity video must be viewed. 

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)
