Student Success Center
The Student Success Center is a comprehensive resource center for students. We promote student success by working closely with faculty to provide academic support programs. We offer a writing center and a peer education program for students at all levels in addition to supplemental instruction and testing. Our writing and peer education services are delivered face-to-face and online in order to meet the demands of our diverse and widespread student population.
By appointment or online, the Student Success Center's staff reviews class papers, articles for publication, and university publications. Face-to-face tutoring is available in Victoria. To find out how to have materials reviewed online, visit Online Tutoring.
In response to student or instructors’ requests, the Center also offers subject area tutoring in mathematics, computer science, and biology during some semesters. Students may discuss concerns related to courses that are in progress.
The Center also provides academic testing services in Victoria for UHV students (correspondence and entrance or placement exams) and on behalf of UHV faculty (makeup exams). To schedule a test session, individuals can call (361) 570-4288.
The Center maintains a comprehensive website that contains writing and ESL resources, including such items as APA and MLA documentation and grammar.
