Important information about taking the TSI

Taking the TSI

TSI changing January 11, 2021--there will be 2 sections: MATH and ELAR. The new test will be known as TSIA2. Reading and Writing will be combined into ELAR, so if you have only passed 1 of these sections, please complete and pass the other section before the January date or you will be required to retest under the  new ELAR guidelines and scores. If you have passed both Reading and Writing in the past 5 years, this new guideline does not apply to you.
