Learning Support Placement Guidelines

Tennessee State University's placement requirements are designed to help you succeed. All students will undergo an initial assessment. Students who do not meet minimum college-level criteria will undergo a secondary assessment to determine learning support requirements.

Students who do not meet TSU's minimum admission requirements have the opportunity to take the ACCUPLACER assessment covering skills in Math, Reading, and Writing.  All academic deficiencies can be met by taking courses identified through testing and assessment.
