Testing Services

Frank Phillips College is a state and national testing site for the:

  • American College Test (ACT)--pick up registration packets from your high school counselor or register online at www.act.org. Testing dates available at FPC are listed on the website.  Testing fee is prepaid to ACT.
  • TSI Testing: Students are required to take placement tests in math, reading, and writing before registering for classes.* The results of these placement tests will be used by college advisors when creating class schedules for students. Prior to taking the TSI placement tests, students must complete the pre-assessment activity. To access the Frank Phillips College pre-assessment activity, go to TSI Preview. This pre-assessment activity may be completed at home any time prior to testing.
    TSI group testing is offered in January and August. To schedule a testing session during any other month, call Student Central at extension 844, 742, or 787. The cost is $10 per test, so the total cost for all three sections is $30. Students must produce a non-expired photo ID before testing. TSI tests are not timed, but you should allow for approximately two hours per test section. If you have any questions about TSI testing, call 806-457-4200 ext. 777 or come by the Classroom Learning Complex, Room 22.
    *Certain exemption criteria for TSI placement testing is available in the Frank Phillips College catalog.

    Transfer 101

    The website www.transfer101.org is packed with user friendly information and step by step instructions on how to successfully transition from community college to universities.

    Many students begin their college careers at a community college like Frank Phillips College, knowing that they will eventually transfer to a university to finish a bachelor’s degree. If this is your future, we want to help you choose Frank Phillips College courses that will transfer and count toward your university.

    It’s important to remember that specific majors have specific requirements. Many times, you can find this information on the website for the university you plan to attend;counselors and other advisors can help you make these decisions as well. Sometimes, students don’t realize that there is a difference between transferability and applicability. In other words, courses may transfer to a university, but not apply to the major you have chosen. For instance, if you begin your college career intending to major in History and then later switch to Business, many of the courses that you completed for the History degree will transfer and apply, but some will not. Many majors have specific course requirements, as do most universities.

    Until you know what you are majoring in and where you want to complete your degree the counseling and advising staff will recommend that you take basic classes that transfer well to universities. The more specific you can be will help both you and our advising staff to serve you better.

    If you are transferring hours from another institution to Frank Phillips College, please provide updated transcripts when meeting with your advisor.
