TSI Testing Times:

  • Offered daily (Monday-Friday) 8AM-12:00PM
    Academic Testing Services will administer the TSI Assessment on the Sundays during Red Raid Orientation.
      The Sundays of RRO for Summer of 2015 are:
      June: 7th, 14th, & 21st
      July: 12th, 19th & 26th
    Seating is limited, but you will be placed in a testing lab as quickly as possible. Students are encouraged to arrive at Academic Testing Services between 8:00-9:00 AM and no later than 12:00 PM. This timeframe is encouraged because the TSI Assessment can be a lengthy, untimed exam.

In order to avoid a delay in advising and class registration, it is recommended that you take the TSI assessment prior to your first day of orientation. The TSI exam is untimed and may take several hours to complete.
