Importance

Step 3: Why does the TSI Assessment matter?

The TSI Assessment is a placement test, not an admissions test. Its only purpose is to figure out your skill level in math, reading, and writing. This is used by your advisor to make sure you have a successful start to college by placing you in the right level courses.
