Freshman | Summer Orientation Before You Attend Orientation

Required Items

  • Testing— Exempt Status, TSI Assessment, Math Placement

    All students entering a Texas public college must meet score requirements with their ACT, SAT, TAKS, or STAAR exams to have an Exempt or “College Ready” Status.

    All students who are Not Exempt or “Not College Ready” from the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) must take the TSI Assessment and have scores submitted to the UTSA Admissions Office PRIOR to attending orientation, Roadrunner Roundup. If you have not taken the TSI Assessment and have a "Not College Ready" status, prior to registering for the TSI Assessment, a Pre-Assessment Activity is REQUIRED. Contact Testing Services for details. You may also take the TSI Assessment at a college or university near you, and have results sent to the UTSA Admissions Office well in advance of your Orientation session.

    Math placement testing dates are also available at the Testing Services Registration link on ASAP.

  • Complete the ENGAGE Assessment Online
      • All new students entering UTSA are required to take the ENGAGE assessment, a 30 minute online questionnaire.
      • All incoming students must complete the ENGAGE assessment PRIOR to attending their new student orientation program and meeting with their academic advisor.
      • The results from your ENGAGE assessment are used to provide recommendations tailored specifically to help you be successful at UTSA.
