Approved Test for TSI Purposes

Important Update: Students may now retest as often as they would like. The Center administers an approved test for TSI purposes. It is a comprehensive computerized adaptive testing system that helps place students into appropriate courses.

Placement and diagnostic exams are offered in mathematics, reading and writing. LSCPA offers unlimited testing, with their approved test for TSI purposes, for the purpose of advancing to the next level of developmental coursework or placing out of developmental courses entirely.

The test is offered on a daily basis between the hours of 8:00am and 2:00pm, at a cost of $15. per section, and students may retest as often as they would like.

Students must see an admissions advisor to obtain a referral form for testing. Upon completion of the exam, students will be given a copy of the scores.

Please return to the Advising Office to determine if your developmental requirement has changed. Passing scores do NOT release a student from their current course obligations and do not award the student a passing grade for the course.
