How can I get my TSI scores?
You will receive your scores for the TSIA2 immediately after testing.
If you lose your Score Report you can visit the Accuplacer Student Portal and have your results emailed to you. You can also come by the Testing Center with a valid photo ID and we can reprint them for you.
What does my score mean?
For full details, please reference the TSIA2: Interpreting Your Scores brochure.
Your TSIA2 scores are used to determine if you are ready for college level coursework so that you can be placed in appropriate courses that match your achievement level.
You're considered college ready in English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR) in two ways:
- If you score in the range of 945-990 on the multiple choice CRC Test and a 5 or higher on the Essay Test, or
- If you score below 945 on the multiple-choice CRC Test, but receive a diagnostic level of 5 or higher on the Diagnostic Test and a 5 or higher on the Essay Test.
You're considered college ready in Math in two ways:
- If you score in the range of 950-990 on the CRC Test or
- If you score below 950 on the CRC Test but receive a diagnostic level of 6 on the Diagnostic Test.
The TSIA2 was launched on January 11, 2021. Scores from the previous TSI assessment are still valid for 5 years from the test date. Please see an advisor for questions on if previous TSI scores are still valid.

What do I do now?
Once you receive your scores, a great next step is to share your scores with your advisor. Together you can discuss your scores and what classes you are eligible for, in order to determine what's best for you.
If you did not score within the college readiness range and you are not satisfied with your results, you may retake the exam. It is strongly encouraged that you set aside time for additional study, otherwise your scores are unlikely to improve.
If you've scores below one or more college readiness benchmarks, your score report will include a Learning Locator Code (LLC), which gives you free access to TSIA2 Learning Resources. Use your LLC for immediate access to a custom set of materials specific to your performance level. Materials may include printable or interactive worksheets and tutorials and instructional videos.
