Stay on Track to a Degree with the No Cost Testing 

The Alamo Colleges is offering the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) test, which usually costs $32, at no cost between May 1 and June 20, 2020.

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state-required assessment test to determine college readiness in reading, writing, and math. All first-time college students must take the TSI test before enrolling in classes unless you are exempt. 

This is a $130,000 investment that will benefit nearly 5,000 students.

Who is eligible for No Cost Testing?

Students who intend to enroll in Summer 2020 or Fall 2020.

Dual credit, academies, ECHS or other high school programs do not qualify for no cost testing.

Will No Cost Testing be available for future terms?


How will students verify eligibility?

Students should check with the Testing Center at the college to determine if they are eligible for no cost testing.
