Texas Success Initiative

The Texas Success Initiative is a state-legislated program designed to improve student success in college. There are two components of the program.

  1. An assessment to diagnose students’ basic skills in reading, mathematics, and writing
  2. Developmental instruction to strengthen academic skills that need improvement

Our Texas Success Initiative program only serves incoming and current students at The University of Texas at Austin. While the Texas Success Initiative is a statewide program, our office can only address the needs of incoming or current students at UT Austin. For TSI questions related to another institution, please contact that institution directly.

TSI and Admission to the University

TSI status does not affect your admission to UT Austin. Our office only works with students once they have been offered admission to the University.

TSI Faculty Advisory Committee

The TSI program gratefully acknowledges the support and direction of our Faculty Advisory Committee. These faculty members assist TSI in creating policies and procedures to ensure our students’ success.
