TSI (Placement) TESTING REQUIREMENT FOR REGISTRATION
The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a program designed to help students be successful
in college. It includes assessment of students before entering a state-supported college
or university, advisement and an individual plan designed to prepare students to meet
college-readiness skills. Students are required to submit TSI Assessment test scores
or proof of exemption or waiver prior to enrolling.
Not all students need to take the TSI Assessment. Previous academics, certificate seeking status, military service, and other tests may exempt you. Detailed information on these exemptions and TSI assessment are located on the TSI Information & Requirements page.
As of January 1, 2014, all entering students under the age of 22 at an institution of higher education are required to show proof of an initial meningococcal vaccination or a booster dose during the five-year period prior to enrolling. They must get the vaccine at least 10 days before the semester begins. Students planning to take online classes only are not required to submit meningitis documentation.
- When submitting meningitis documentation via email or fax, include your MC student ID number.
- Local pharmacies that carry the vaccine include: HEB, Grahams, and Walgreens.
- Typical shot cost at pharmacy is $129.00.
A separate, signed application must be submitted ONLINE for each individual to receive an exemption from Texas meningococcal vaccination requirements. This form is for official use only and is not valid if photocopied. You must have a working printer to complete this transaction.
