ABOUT THE TSI
 
It is STRONGLY SUGGESTED that all seniors and anyone wanting to do dual credit classes take the TSI Exam. TSI Complete means you are "College Ready" and ready to start college level classes. If you score lower, you may absolutely still go to college and be highly successful, but you will be required to take additional developmental "co-requisite courses". Talk to your counselor or CCMR about your scores and if you should re-test to bring up your scores.
TSI Complete: TSIA2 Test - a 950 math score and math diagnostic level of 6. TSIA2 Test - a reading and writing score of at least 945 and an essay of 5 or greater OR a reading and writing score below 945, a diagnostic level of 5 or 6 & an essay score of at least 5. ACT Test - a 23 composite and a 19 on math and English SAT Test - a 530 math and a 480 evidence based reading and writing.
