    The TSIA2 is one of the ways students qualify to take courses through TVCC. ELA must be passed to take most courses.  The Math TSIA2 is only needed for math and upper level science courses.

    DO YOU NEED YOUR TSI SCORES? Go to the Accuplacer student portal: here  It will email the scores to the email you registered for the test with. It uses your Texas Unique ID that you may not know if you did not keep your voucher. Send me an email and I will send the ID to you. (This portal only works for tests that were taken starting Jan. 2021)
