There are multiple ways to take the TSI Assessment. Please be sure to read through each option and choose the best one for you. Contact the TSI Office if you would like more clarification or need help choosing the best option for you.

Test at your High School

Take the TSI Assessment while you are in high school. Visit your College and Career Counsellor for more information on testing while in high school and sending us your scores.

Test Remotely at a Community College

You may test at a local Texas community college. You may be charged a $20 UT fee as well as a separate fee that the community college will charge you for using their site. Some colleges may allow their students to test for a lower cost or for free. Contact the TSI Office here at UT for more information. Please complete the TSI Assessment Request Form and choose the remote option.

Test Online

You may test online at home on your computer for a $45 fee. You must have access to a computer with a microphone and a webcam, as this is how the online proctor will monitor you as you test. Please complete the TSI Assessment Request Form and choose the online option.

Test at Orientation

The TSI Assessment is offered through Student Testing Services for a $45 fee during orientation sessions for students who failed to test before their Orientation. Please note that if you do not take the TSI Assessment before you arrive for Orientation, your orientation session will be disrupted and you may not be able to register for classes.

If you are not satisfied with your scores from a previous attempt, you may retake the Assessment. It is strongly recommended that you set aside time for additional study before retesting. It is unlikely that your score will improve greatly without additional review and study. Please visit Test Prep for resources and study material.

Students must complete the TSI Pre-Assessment Activity before they can successfully take the TSI Assessment.
