Your success matters to us, and you’ll be more successful at San Jacinto College when you start in the right classes. San Jacinto College offers and administers the TSI-A exam to determine your college readiness levels in math, reading and writing.  Testing does not have to be completed in one day.  You are able to test over a 14 day period from the day that you started testing.  Test scores will be available upon completion of all test sections.  Your test scores will determine if you are ready for college level courses, or if you need a bit more practice with college preparatory courses.
