    TSI Assessment Exam 

    All first time students pursuing a degree or Level II certificate are required to take a state approved Texas Success Initiative (TSIA) Assessment  prior to registration.  This exam can be from one to nine hours long – based upon the individual.   http://www.coastalbend.edu/collegeplacement 

    Pre-Assessment Activity Mandatory

    All first-time college students will need to go through a Pre-Assessment Activity which consists of the following:   

    (1) the importance of this assessment, [Based upon your scores on the TSIA – this will decide whether you are eligible for a college level course or if you will need to take a developmental or preparation course – which will not give you college credit.  A developmental course will help you build your skills so that you will eventually be able to take a college level course.  These courses give you a foundation in the subject area that you need preparation in.  The TSIA exam is very important and we want you to do as well as you possibly can.]
    (2)
    sample questions, [go to:  http://www.coastalbend.edu/tsiresource/ for sample questions and other resources to help you prepare for the TSIA]

    course options, and [Coastal Bend College offers various course options:   NCBO - Non-Course Based course - which is a non-semester length course delivered in an intense workshop setting,  Integrated Course - which is a course that integrates two areas - such as Reading and Writing together so that a student gets two courses for the time and price of one course,  Lecture courses (class-room style course with instructor – face-to-face); Distance Learning courses (class-room setting, but video cameras and microphones link you to other sites with other students.  The instructor may move around from site-to-site to have face time with each area); Internet courses (do your course work from home, but some courses may have you take a proctored exam at a CBC site); Accelerated Learning Academy courses (go to: http://www.coastalbend.edu/ala/)]
