Texas Success Initiative (TSI)


Do I have to take an assessment before I can enroll for classes?

TSI - Prospective Student Information

The Amarillo College Developmental Plan requires students entering Amarillo College be tested in reading, mathematics, and writing skills before they enroll in any collegiate course work for credit, unless exempt. Testing results are used by advisors to place students into appropriate coursework and to help students achieve academic success.  Amarillo College currently uses the TSI for placement purposes. Prospective students must first complete an on-line Pre-Assessment Activity and then contact the Testing Center to schedule their TSI.

All students must assess unless exempt. Prospective students need to see an advisor to determine specific testing requirements. For more information, see your advisor.  Who is my advisor?
