Catalog 2014-2015


Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

The Texas Education Code, Section 51.403(e), authorizes the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to establish quidelines and reporting requirements. The purpose of Chapter 4, Subchapter C, is to implement the Texas Success Initiative for Texas public institutions of higher education. This includes assessing the academic skills of each entering undergraduate student prior to enrollment of the student. Students must be deemed college ready before proceeding to college-level course work.

See Admissions Section on the college website.

Students in the categories mentioned above must sign a waiver before enrollment.

North Central Texas College administers the TSI Assessment during a short period of time prior to the beginning of a semester's registration schedule.  This is in addition to the six normally scheduled TSI Assessment examinations held across the state throughout the year.  All students should contact the Counseling & Testing Office to obtain information about the dates and times of TSI Assessment testing.  Refer to Texas Success initiative in the NCTC Catalog for additional information.
