Final Requirement for Some Undergraduate Students

Texas Higher Education Assessment/Texas Success Initiative (THEA/TSI): The TSI requires students to be assessed in reading, writing and math skills prior to enrolling in college. Those who are not TSI exempt will be required to obtain passing scores on a TSI Assessment. Students can be exempted from TSI through a variety of means.

ALEKS Math Placement Assessment Exam (ALEKS): UT Dallas uses the ALEKS Assessment to optimize the placement of all students in their first math course. The assessment is an open format that does not use multiple choice questions. All incoming first-time freshmen to UT Dallas are required to take the ALEKS Assessment. The ALEKS Assessment module at UT Dallas costs $40 per student.
