What is TSI?

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state-mandated developmental education program that provides support to students who have not demonstrated college-readiness in reading, writing, or mathematics. TSI at Texas Tech University creates customized academic support plans for developmental coursework in these key areas to ensure students will be successful in their selected academic majors and beyond.

Students who are required to enroll in TSI courses will receive notification prior to their RRO session via their TTU email. Please make sure to check the Admitted Student Tasklist, review your TSI hold, and prepare for TSI Check In prior to your registration date.

Students will receive information regarding TSI Check In and coursework via email at their TTU email address. Please review the TSI Check In page for additional details.
