TSI Courses

Students who do not meet the minimum requirements in one or more sections of the TSI Assessment will work with the TSI Advisor to choose one of the following two Developmental Course plans:

Semester-Long Developmental Courses

Under this plan, students take a 3-hour semester-long course to prepare them to succeed in their credit-bearing courses. The benefits of enrolling in a 3-hour course include more frequent meetings with your instructor for greater support and increased opportunity to practice these skills.

Non-Course Based Options

Students take a required core course and meet with a TSI Instructor each week to support them in the core class and to improve critical skills. The benefit of enrolling in the NCBO is that you will be enrolled in a class that counts toward your degree while still getting assistance outside of the scheduled class times.

Students will meet individually with the TSI Advisor to decide which course is best suited to their individual needs. Registration for these courses occurs during the advising session. Students are restricted from registering for certain college-level courses until their TSI requirements are met.
