TSI Testing (August 2017)

********** TSI TESTING INSTRUCTIONS **********

TSI TESTING IS DONE ON A WALK-IN BASIS ON THE DAY YOU SELECT TO TEST (SEE THE PULL-DOWN MENU AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE). THERE WILL BE NO SPECIFIC TIME FOR YOU TO TEST.

Students who plan on attending ACC should complete an application prior to taking the TSI exam.

PRE-ASSESSMENT ACTIVITY (PAA)

YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO TEST WITHOUT COMPLETING A STATE REQUIRED PRE-ASSESSMENT ACTIVITY (PAA). Click here for the Pre-Assessment Activity. Be sure to select Alvin Community College from the drop down menu. You may choose to pay for a math preparation module with the company (Querium) that provides the PAA. That payment IS NOT the TSI testing fee.

REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS

For first-time testing, students should take the entire exam. If you believe you qualify for an exemption or only need testing in one area, visit with an Academic Advisor to confirm. Click here for testing exemptions.

A receipt will be sent to the email address that you enter when paying. Bring it with you when you test.

DAY OF TEST INSTRUCTIONS

Testing is done on a walk-in basis. On the date you select below, come to the ACC Testing Center in Building A when you are ready to take your exam. Testing sign-in hours are from 9:00am to 5:00pm . You will not be allowed to begin your exam after 5:00pm. You must complete your exam by 8:00pm. Allow at least 5 hours for the full test, although you may finish sooner. YOU WILL NOT SCHEDULE A SPECIFIC TIME WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR THE EXAM.

Directions to ACC Testing Center: From bypass 35, take Childress Drive to the main buildings and enter to the right of the flagpoles. Follow the signs to the Testing Center in the back hallway of Building A.

Bring a state- or government-issued photo ID such as a Texas Driver's License, DPS ID Card, passport, high school ID with photo and name, or military identification. A recent school yearbook (within the last two years) with your first and last names is acceptable. All forms of identification must be original - no photocopies.
