All community or junior colleges in Texas now use ONE placement test, the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment Test, testing in reading, writing, and math in order to determine if first-time students are ready for college-level coursework. Another important change is that there are now “Mandatory Pre-Assessment Activities” that students must complete before taking the test – basically the colleges are now making students study before taking it, which is a good thing. If a student does not score at college-level, he or she will have to take remedial courses – time, money, no college credit. Since these steps have been added to the registration process, it is even more important to begin that process early, at least three months before classes begin.
Please review sample questions here. The college you’re applying to will have more information and tips for studying.
Student registration may happen anytime in the month of August in person or through this website. Coming to our physical location is always preferable but be prepared for construction in front of our building. The front entrance to our building is currently difficult to access. You may however enter through the garage of the building which is located on Westpark Dr. Please refer to the map below:

Houston Community College and most community colleges offer year-round personal enrichment courses in everything from arts (creative writing & publishing, digital photography & photoshop) to languages, to how to start your own business, be a better parent, or find a job. Take a class this summer, do some thing fun, learn something new:
The Texas Senate has passed a bill, referred to as “The Tim Tebow Bill,” that will allow home schooled students to participate in University Interscholastic League (UIL) activities offered at public schools. This includes more or less all public school extracurricular activities such as basketball, football, speech, debate, chess, etc.
The bill must still pass the Texas House of Representatives to become a law. The Texas Home School Coalition outlines details of the law and what it may mean for home schooled students & families.
