All incoming freshman attending a public higher education institution in Texas are required to take one of the four exams approved for the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), unless exempted. Exams that are TSI approved include the ACCUPLACER, ASSET, COMPASS, and THEA (or the Quick THEA).  For frequently asked questions about the TSI, please visit UHV’s TSI PLAN.


Students must wait 30 days before re-taking the ACCUPLACER.


The ACCUPLACER is a computer-based exam and also a computer-adaptive test (the next question is determined by how the previous question was answered). Test scores are available upon completing the test and should be interpreted by an academic advisor.

Cell phones (and other electronic communication devices) are not permitted in the testing room. Examinees should leave cell phones at home or in a vehicle. An examinee using a cell phone or possessing a cell phone that rings during the test session will be dismissed, and the scores may be voided.
