Required Academic Proficiency Assessment

All junior level students, including transfer students, are required to complete the ETSR Proficiency Profile assessment test after completion of 60 semester credit hours. Students who have not completed the assessment before registering for 90 semester credit hours will have a hold placed on their registration.  Students pursuing a second baccalaureate degree are exempt from the assessment requirement.

Completing the assessment is a graduate requirement although individual student scores are not used by the University.  There is no student fee for the assessment.

The ETSR Proficiency Profile is offered at the main Tyler Campus, the Longview University Center, and the Palestine Campus and for UT Tyler engineering students at the Houston Community College District – Alief Campus.
