Taking Your Placement Test

Are you prepared?

Your success matters to us, and you’ll be more successful at San Jacinto College when you start in the right classes. San Jacinto College uses the TSIA exam to determine your college readiness levels in math, reading and writing.  Before you meet with an advisor and attend new student orientation, it’s important that you take this exam. Your test scores will determine if you are ready for college level courses, or need a bit more practice with college preparatory courses. Testing takes place at your campus of choice, and can usually be completed in three to four hours.

Ready to get started? You will need to complete the below TSIA Pre-Assessment Activity. Find a quiet location allowing for approximately 1-2 hours to review. Due to the nature of the material and navigation of the module, you should complete the activity in one sitting. This activity includes audio and video elements; therefore, please ensure you have access to working speakers or a headset.
