    Students Who Have Already Taken the TSI

    If you have taken and passed the TSI at your home campus, the campus CCRS will verify scores and no further action is needed by the student.   Students can find out their TSI scores by going to their campus College and Career Center during their lunch period. 

    TSI Assessment Locations

    Testing on Home Campus

    EMS ISD allows students to take the TSI assessment once on their home campus.  Juniors took the TSI in October 2016, unless they were taking the PSAT. Students that have submitted a complete Dual Credit Agreement Form, and need to take the TSI for the first time will be tested the week of February 20, 2017 on the home campus. Students must have applied to TCC and have a TCC ID number to test.

    Testing on the TCC Campus

    If you need to take the TSI and miss the campus testing date, or need to re-take a portion of the TSI, you will need to do so at the TCC NW Campus Testing Center. After successfully completing the assessment, bring a copy of your scores to the campus CCRS for your dual credit file.

    Cost: Free 1st test at TCC/Re-takes at TCC $11

    **Students must have applied at TCC and have a TCC ID number to test.

    On testing day bring a government issued photo ID or EMS school ID to the testing center, and identify yourself as an EMS ISD Dual Credit student. If you took the TSI on the home campus, and just need to re-take a portion of the test, TCC will allow you to take only that section. You must see the campus CCRS to receive a printout of your scores and take that printout to the TCC testing center when you test.

    TCC NW Campus Testing Center- Building: WCTS Room: 1132 Phone: 817-515-7444

    TCC NW Campus Testing Center- Hours: Mon-Thur 8am-7pm - Friday 8am-5pm
