Texas Success Initiative(TSI) Assessment

Texas law requires that you complete assessments in reading, writing, and mathematics before you enroll in college. The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) mandates that any new undergraduate student entering a public institution must be assessed for readiness to enroll in college coursework.

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Advanced Placement Program (AP)

The Alamo Colleges recognize the credit-granting scores recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE). Students can be granted a maximum of 32 hours of non-course based credit (i.e. CLEP and/or AP). No credit will be awarded until the student has successfully completed as least six (6) hours of course credit from any of the Alamo Colleges.


Palo Alto College provides proctoring services for Alamo Colleges Distance Education instructors and their students. Examinations are administered in a secure, proctored environment.

Students with a documented disability that need accommodations for TSI, make-up and/or distance testing may contact Disability Support Services (DSS) in advance. For more information regarding documentation requirements, students may call DSS at 210-486-3020.
