The primary test we use at San Jac is called the TSIA. Students need to take the pre-assessment, once complete print your certificate and take it to an Admissions Advisor or the Admissions Office to get a test referral form. For more information about the pre-assessment click here. If your scores show that you’re ready for college, you’re in. If not, you’ll just need to take some developmental courses, which we offer right here at San Jac.
Students can re-test on the TSIA once per day for a $30 fee for each day. Students may re-test once per day. Student must see and advisor or educational planner for a Testing Request form and pay a $30 fee at the Business Office.
If your test scores require you to take developmental courses, the first step is to meet with a San Jac Admission Advisor. Your advisor will determine which courses you need to take and help you with anything you need to succeed through options such as tutoring and retesting.
TSI requirements and developmental courses do not apply to you in any of these cases:
