Pre-Assessment Activity

The TSI Pre-Assessment Activity is required of all students taking the TSI Assessment at The University of Texas at Austin. The first question on the TSI Assessment will ask if you were provided with a Pre-Assessment Activity. If you do not complete the Pre-Assessment Activity you will not be allowed to take the TSI Assessment. You must complete the TSI Pre-Assessment Activity and answer “yes” to the first question in order to take the TSI Assessment.

Please contact the TSI Office before proceeding with the Pre-Assessment Activity. Contacting the TSI office will allow the TSI advisor to make a final evaluation of your TSI status. Our office can be reached by email or at 512-232-7146.

Please note that our office only serves incoming and current students at UT Austin. We are not able to assist students who are not admitted to the university.
