New to College Students

The Assessment Center of Eastfield College requires certain assessment procedures for use in course placement. Assessment is not used to determine admissions except for students concurrently enrolled in high schools. If you are a new-to-college student and you have not met the testing requirements as indicated on your high school transcript, you must take the TSI Assessment.

Your completed test score will assess your basic academic skills in reading, writing, math, and computer literacy. Based on your educational goals, an advisor will use the results of this test to help place you in the appropriate developmental, student success course, and/or college level courses.

Note: The TSI Assessment is available on a walk-in basis: Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Bring a photo ID and your referral form.
