TSI Assessment Retesting


A student may retest as often as they choose, at cost, providing space is available.

RETEST THURSDAYS-- Beginning with Fall Semester 2013 with the launch of the new TSI assessment, the El Centro College Testing Center will begin administering Retest sessions on Thursdays.

A student who is not satisfied with his/her performance may retake the TSI Assessment at any time between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Thursdays without an appointment. Before attempting to retest, it is strongly recommended that students set aside time for additional study and review preparation materials. 

Students desiring to retest on any section of the TSI assessment must acquire a (violet) retest referral from an academic advisor (A-110) and pay the $10 per section payment at the Cashier Window (A-244) prior to returning to the Testing Center.  The Retest Referral, Cashier receipt, and a current student ID are required items for testing.

Regular (Non-Dual Credit) Students:

  • Check with the Advising Office (A-110) or Testing Center (A-067) for information concerning retesting and review options.

Dual Credit Students:

  • Retest for Dual Credit students allows for one free retest, beyond that, the test is at cost.
  • Testing Center staff will NOT return to High School campuses to retest.
  • Check with the Dual Credit office (A-071) or Testing Center (A-067) for information concerning retesting and review options.
