We highly encourage all students to seek advising often. The Floresville Center offers academic advising by appointment or via walk-in.  Walk-in times are available Mondays & Wednesdays from 3-5pm.

Financial Aid Information and Processing 

Knowledgeable staff will assist individuals in completing and submitting financial aid forms.  Here's what you need to bring if you require assistance:

  • Your Federal tax information or tax returns, including W-2 information, for yourself, for your spouse if you are married, and for your parents if you are a dependent student.
  • Information on savings, investments, and business and farm assets for yourself (and for your parents if you are a dependent student).

If you can, please complete the worksheet  prior to your appointment. 

 

Placement Testing

Effective August 26, 2013 (based on House Bill 3468 - Texas College-Readiness Assessment and Placement) the new TSI Assessment will be the only accepted placement exam and all prior test scores for students not enrolled will no longer be valid.  The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state-legislated program that provides assistance with reading, writing and math skills of students entering Texas public colleges and universities. The program consists of testing, advisement, placement and developmental education for students who do not pass one or more sections of the test. There are possible exemptions and waivers from the State mandate.
