Student Success Center

The Student Success Center is a resource center for students, faculty, and staff. We promote student success by working closely with faculty to provide academic support programs. We offer a writing center for students and staff and a tutoring program for students at all levels in addition to supplemental instruction and testing. Our writing and tutoring services are delivered face-to-face and online in order to meet the demands of our diverse and widespread student population.

Writing Assistance. Click here to submit document for online writing tutoring. 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.

Along with face-to-face and online writing tutoring, the Student Success Center now offers a combination of both—face-to-face online writing tutoring through Adobe Connect. All you need is Internet access. A camera and microphone are helpful to have but not essential. After registering through WConline make your appointment by selecting UH-Victoria Virtual Writing Tutoring from the dropdown menu.

Trained tutors review these documents, make suggestions for revision, and discuss techniques for analyzing and revising writing. Submit Documents Here!

Subject-Area 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.

Testing Services. 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 TSI ASSESSMENT EXAM is offered periodically during each semester. The paper-based TExES/ExCET is provided four to six times per year, and the TExES/ExCET CAT is offered one or two times each month.

Writing Guides and Tips. The Center maintains a comprehensive website that contains writing and ESL resources, including such items as APA and MLA documentation and grammar.
