Any students enrolled in courses beginning with "TSI" are billed $16.00; the students do not earn credit hours, and the courses do not apply toward a degree plan.

"C" or Better Courses

Once students have completed remediation (refer to pg. 4), they are eligible to register for the state approved "C" or better courses listed below. If students succeed in these courses with a "C" or better, they are declared "TSI Complete".

Students who have passed any of the TSI approved tests may begin the next semester without mandatory skills development. Students who re-take one of the TSI approved tests and pass will be declared "TSI Complete" and will not have to complete the current registered remedial course.
