    What score do I need on the TSI Assessment?

    To satisfy TSI and course prerequisite requirements, you must meet or exceed the following college-ready scores:

    Subject Area College-Ready Score
    Mathematics Placement score of at least 950
    Placement score of 910–949 and a diagnostic level of 6
    Integrated Reading/Writing Placement score of at least 945 and an essay score of 5–8
    Placement score of at least 910 and a diagnostic level of 5–6 and an essay score of 5–8

    You cannot pass or fail the TSI Assessment but you do need to make a qualifying score in Integraded Reading/Writins in order to participate in Dual Credit classes. 

    If you have any exemption - PSAT, SAT, or ACT qualifying scores - then you do not have to take the TSI for Dual Credit. You will need to submit your qualifying test scores.
