Additional TSI Information
Once admitted to Texas Tech University, the TSI Student Compliance Office (West Hall, Room 116) will place a registration hold on any students whose records indicate absent THEA scores and/or proof of exemption on file.
The TSI Skills Development Office (Holden Hall Room 72) will place a registration hold on any student's records that show the student has not met the THEA or Accuplacer score requirements on one or more sections of the test. The hold will remain until the student is certified as TSI complete.
The above mentioned holds are to ensure students are registered in the appropriate developmental courses and that compliance with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is being met. Each registration must include a developmental program that is set up during a TSI advisement session (required before registration) in the TSI Skills Development Office (Holden Hall Room 72). After the initial Orientation/Advising session students will continue advisement for any enrollment change (registration, add/drop, withdrawals) on walk-in basis with the TSI Academic Program Advisor. Once students are certified as TSI complete the registration holds will be removed and the TSI restrictions on registration will be lifted.
Students may appeal withdrawals when extenuating circumstances exist by picking up an Appeal of Withdrawal form in Holden Hall Room 72.
Students new to Texas Tech University's TSI Program are required to sign a TSI Program Contract, a Registration TSI Advising contract, and Exchange and Release of Information form upon their entrance into the program.
Continuing students are required to sign and complete a TSI Program Contract, a Registration TSI Advising contract, and Exchange and Release of Information prior to each new enrollment. These contracts are to reinforce the advising session, to ensure that the student has a copy of the TSI requirements as required by state law, and to provide in writing the expectations of the TSI Skills Development Office.
