What are Academic Placement Exams?
Texas Wesleyan University uses placement exams to check the academic skill level of entering students in subjects such as Math, English and Reading. The results of these scores determine if more preparation is needed before taking college-level classes.
Do my TSI scores count?
Certain TSI scores could exempt you from placement exams. Please submit your TSI scores to your admissions counselor as soon as possible. Here is our reference chart on scores and placements. Our Testing Coordinator, Richard Jolivette, can answer any questions concerning TSI scores.

What if I live out of town?
If you live out of town, we can find another location for you to test. Please contact our testing coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will locate a testing center near you and email you a voucher to test at that location. Keep in mind some remote locations charge a test administration fee.
