College Entrance Exams
Students planning to attend a 4 year university, community college, or junior college will need to take a college entrance exam.
4 Year Universities often require the SAT or ACT but please check with the institutions website to see their specific requirements. Some may also have a minimum score for admission.
Community Colleges and Junior Colleges will accept the SAT or ACT but if in Texas will also accept the TSI Assessment.
The TSI Assessment is part of the Texas Success Initiative program. It is designed to help your college or university determine if you are ready for college level course work in the areas of reading, writing and mathematics. If you are an incoming college student in Texas, you are required to take the TSI Assessment unless you are exempt. Exemptions are listed below.
ACT: 23 composite with 19 on english (to exempt reading and writing) and 19 on math (to exempt math)
SAT: 480 on Evidence Based Reading and Writing (to exempt reading and writing) and 530 on Math (to exempt math)
Rains HS will pay for one TSI and one ACT or SAT administration for each student during their junior or senior year. Rains HS will also pay for one retest when a student fails to meet TSI Criteria in ELA/Reading and/or Math.
M-F 8:00 am- 12:00pm
