IMPROVE YOUR PLACEMENT BEFORE ENROLLING AT TSU
Before you enroll at TSU, you can improve your placement in reading, writing, and math courses by participating in TSU’s Summer Success Institute. This five-week program helps you as a high school sophomore or junior to prepare to make higher ACT/SAT scores. As a high school senior, you can build your skills in English, math, and reading, and have the opportunity to fulfill learning support requirements before your first fall semester. By taking summer classes on TSU’s beautiful campus, you’ll also develop positive relationships with our faculty members and know where you’re going when you return to class in the fall.
