TSI Credit for Private or Out-of-State College Work

Students who have never attended a public college in Texas may receive credit for some parts of the initial assessment test by having earned an A, B, or C in certain courses taken from their former institutions. These courses are shown in the table below. The coursework must have been transferred to Texas state and appear on the student's Texas State transcript. The student is required to take any remaining part of the assessment test prior to New Student Orientation at Texas State. Please note: courses that transfer as elective non-advanced (ELNA) or elective advanced (ELADV) may not be used to meet the TSI requirements.
