The test starts @ 9:00 a.m. in 300L and the student will be excused for testing.The test is untimed. Students purchase the TSIA on the Texan Webstore ( www.Ray.ccisd.us under the tab “Campus”) and it is $7 with a credit card, or free to free/reduced lunch students (based on parent income verification).

2.    The TSIA is part of a program designed to help a college or university determine if you are ready to be placed in college-level course work in the general areas of reading, writing, or mathematics.  

3.    Although optional, the results of the test last for 5 years. At any time if you are seeking a dual credit class or needing it your senior year for college entrance, you will have already tested. If you do not pass, you have the option to study and retest at your convenience.  Students may also test at the Del Mar College Evaluation Center (http://delmar.edu/tsi)
