Tarrant County College requires a state-approved placement test to satisfy admission requirements. Most first-time-in-college students are required to take a placement test to determine college readiness in Mathematics and Reading/Writing before enrolling in college-level courses.

The Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) is the state-approved placement test.
