College Placement Tests & Score Requirements
To enroll in dual credit courses, students must show college readiness in reading, writing, and/or math as applicable to the course(s) the student plans to take.
All students in Texas public colleges are required to demonstrate college readiness through the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA2), which is a state program designed to promote student success by assessing students' academic skills through the TSI Assessment (TSIA2).
Students may either take the TSIA2 or show scores from other accepted assessments approved for placement. Approved assessments are the TSIA2, ACT, SAT, and STAAR.
*Secondary Schools (ISD, charter, or private) may have a different deadline that supersedes Lone Star College's published deadline. Please confirm the secondary school's deadline with your high school counselor.
