    Testing on Home Campus

    EMS ISD allows students to take the TSI assessment once on their home campus. The testing window is February 19-23. Students that miss testing in the window must take the TSI at the TCC NW Campus Testing Center. Students must test before or after school. 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
    • 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 ISD 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 need to re-take a portion of the test, TCC will allow you to take only that section.
