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).

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)
