What is TSI? – TSI is the Texas Success Initiative – It requires students to be assessed in reading, writing and mathematical skills before enrolling in a Texas public college or university. Students must be “TSI complete” before enrolling at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Courses required for remediation will not be counted toward the minimum degree requirements at either institution.
What is a Consortium Agreement? – Two or more schools may enter into a consortium or contractual agreement so that a student can continue to receive Federal Student Aid funds while studying at a school or organization other than his or her "home" school. The "home" school is the one that will grant the student's degree or certification. For additional information visit the Consortium Agreement webpage.
