At my university the ti92 is allowed for all tests, and no one has
complained yet. I think the real problem is that most test would be
to easy to do with a ti92, so until they get some test which test
how good you are at math and not how good you calc is, they con not
allow the ti92.

You do not need a ti92 for the university, but it is nice to have. One
of my friends who is studying engeneering uses a ti30-stat. Most test
are alot esaier to do with a big calc though.
