Test for College
The ACT and SAT exams are required by most but not ALL colleges. The Texas Success Initiative Assessment, better known as the TSI test, is a program, which determines the appropriate level of college course work for an incoming student. Read below for more information about the TSI, SAT, ACT, and other tests.
For 4-year Universities (4-year bachelor's degree) a student will need to take either the SAT or ACT. The college does not have a preference, but the student will.
Here is a chart of the differences between the two tests:
