TSI Completion in Reading and Writing
ESOL students can become TSI complete by passing ESOL exit-level courses. Although they must have taken the TSI test at some point, students who pass these courses do not need passing TSI scores.
ESOL CE and CR classes that make students TSI complete.
- Passing grade in Reading and Vocabulary 4 (ESOL 0314)= Reading TSI completion.
- Passing grade in Writing 4 (ESOL 0374) = Writing TSI completion.
- The student will automatically be TSI completed in XTOV.
- Continuing Education:
- Passing grade in Reading and Vocabulary 4 (COMX 4014) = Reading TSI completion.
- Passing grade in Writing 4 (COMX 4074) = Writing TSI completion.
- The student must convert these CE credits to CR credits for them to count for TSI completion
Steps for converting CE credits to CR credits:
Once Reading 4 and Writing 4 are complete through CE, the student can begin the process of converting their CE credits into academic credits to become TSI complete.
- The student completes the credit application/enrollment process.
- The advisor waives the TSI hold for registration.
- The student completes one college credit class with a grade of C or higher. *
- The student requests a copy of their official CE transcript.
- CE Registration sends the student their CE Transcript and a Conversion Request Form.
- The student completes the Conversion Request Form.
- The student emails (1) their CE transcript AND (2) their Conversion Request Form to Admissions and Records (email@example.com).
- Admissions and Records converts the CE credits to college credits.
- After the credits are converted in the system, the TSI Office marks the student as TSI complete.
- NOTE: It takes approximately 7-10 working days for the conversion to appear in the student’s record. Please be patient. You may ask for a status update on your credit conversion 14 days after you emailed firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact the HBC Admissions & Records Assistant at (512) 223-7207 to get the status update.
*If a student doesn’t pass the credit class, the adviser may need to waive the TSI hold again.
