    As a student success-driven institution, Coastal Bend College offers many programs to help all students become college ready as efficiently and timely as possible.  

    TSI Testing

    TSI Testing Exemptions

    TSI Placement and Coursework  

    Students will be provided with an immediate print out of results after taking the TSI Assessment. These scores are used to place the student into his/her college courses. All incoming freshman should visit with his/her assigned advisor when enrolling in classes. Students, check your school email or campus connect for your assigned advisor.
