In-State Transfer Student Information
Students transferring from any Texas public institution must provide official transcripts showing their current TSI status. Transfer students meeting a TSI requirement must have their status documented on an official transcript (Transferring grades in certain classes does not guarantee that the student has met the TSI requirement). Please note that developmental courses do not transfer into PVAMU . Transfer students who have not met all of the TSI requirements will be placed in the PVAMU developmental sequence based upon test scores provided until all TSI requirements are met.
Students attending Texas public institutions of higher education must be in compliance with the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), as of fall 2003 (Texas Education Code §) in order to enroll in public institutions of higher education. The law requires all entering college students to be assessed for college readiness in reading, mathematics and writing unless the student qualifies for an exemption. Each student who fails to meet the minimum passing standard of the exam offered by the institution must be placed in a developmental education program designed to help the student achieve college readiness.
