Student Services

The Student Success Center, located in room 129 of University West, offers writing assistance, subject-area tutoring, testing services, instructional handouts (both in print and online), and a grammar tip of the week to UHV students.

Writing Assistance
The Student Success Center has staff available to review student papers, and other written work. During sessions with the tutors, individuals may discuss a paper that is in progress. Tutors will offer a critical response to a draft and make suggestions for revision. Students may have their papers reviewed by Student Success Center personnel in either a face-to-face session or an online session.

Subject-area Tutoring
The Student Success Center provides subject area tutoring if requested by students and/or faculty in areas such as biology, mathematics, psychology, and computer science. During sessions with the tutors, individuals may discuss concerns related to courses that are in progress.

Testing Services
The Center provides academic testing services. Students can schedule correspondence exams, makeup tests, THEA Quick Test, ACCUPLACER and practice TexES throughout the year logging onto Register Blast. Faculty can also refer students to the Register Blast for makeup exams, which are provided on an appointment basis to students located at UHV. The Student Success Center’s staff provides standardized testing for students enrolling in college or completing their certification: The THEA Quick Test (formerly Quick TASP) is offered prior to the beginning of each regular semester, and the TExES test is provided on the four test administration dates set by National Evaluation Systems. Students also can take practice TExES exams through the Center.

Information Resources
The Student Success Center provides a number of instructional handouts that may assist you with both your academic and professional writing. The handouts are organized into various groups or "centers," including business and professional communication, documentation style, grammar and punctuation, English as a foreign language, research paper, and writing and learning across the curriculum.

Workshops and Presentations
The Student Success Center may offer face-to-face workshops and presentations each semester. Additionally, the center offers online workshops or presentations that can be worked through or viewed at your convenience. These workshops or presentations may be web-based or Power Point presentations. Power Point presentations may contain audio.

Grammar Tip of the Week
Grammatically Correct is a grammar tip of the week created by Academic Center Peer Writing Tutors at the University of Houston-Victoria.
