Frequently asked questions

Do I need to take a placement exam (ACT, SAT, etc.) to be accepted into TJC?

Tyler Junior College does not have an admissions test. Texas law however does require TSI Assessment or an approved alternative placement test for all non-exempt undergraduate students entering Texas public institutions of higher learning. Students may have to take the TSI Assessment or an approved alternative test prior to enrolling in any college-level course work. ACCUPLACER is the approved alternative test offered at TJC. (In accordance with HB 1224, TSI placement scores are under review and subject to change)
