Developmental Education

If you are enrolled in a degree program, then your TSI Assessment scores determine when you may begin taking College-Level courses. South Texas College is dedicated to helping you meet College-Ready standards and become successful in academic level courses.

Please meet with an advisor to review your options before registering for courses. Your options may change depending on your TSI scores, your degree plan, and if you plan to transfer to another institution.

Students that need to take developmental courses are also required to take a College Success course during their first semester. Details can be found in the catalog: Academic Information (see "College Success" section).
