Academic Success Resources

Whether you need special accommodations to make the most of your learning environment or just need some additional help with a particular class, we offer many options to help you succeed.

Academic advisors assist with defining your academic goals. They can help you explore majors, select courses and meet degree requirements. They can also tell you about educational and personal support programs, co-curricular opportunities and career options.

Our academic coaches work with you to create and develop educational success strategies. Coaches identify your strengths and weaknesses and individualize appropriate activities to help you. They can meet one-on-one or in small groups.

The Student Success Help Desk is a great resource for when you encounter academic problems. Staff members listen to your concerns and help you find a solution to stay on track for graduation.

Our Academic Success Center offers tutoring for specific courses and subject areas. The center provides tutoring to individuals or small groups.

We work to make sure students with disabilities have a quality learning environment. Disability services include accommodations, evaluation referrals, assistive technology services, sign language interpretation and transcription services.

The Routh First-Generation Center supports first-generation students from admission to graduation. A first-generation student is a student whose parents haven't earned a bachelor's degree.

Support Programs

Navigating college as a transfer or first-year student can be challenging. That's why we offer a variety of programs to help you make the successful transition to student life at Texas A&M.

Undergraduate students who have had academic difficulty in the past have a chance to be admitted with a clear academic record. Through the Academic Fresh Start Program, credits and grades for college courses taken 10 or more years before the date of enrollment may be ignored for admission purposes.

Our academic coaches work with you to create and develop educational success strategies. Coaches identify your strengths and weaknesses and individualize appropriate activities to help you. They can meet one-on-one or in small groups.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a peer-led program aimed at improving your academic performance. It is offered for select courses, and attendance is voluntary. SI leaders teach collaborative learning methods to help you achieve course learning objectives.

If you are a transfer student, the Transfer Student Program will help you make the most of your new academic home. It provides transfer support services, advising, social and wellness activities, academic mentoring and opportunities to meet other transfer students.

The Office for Student Success helps first-year students find connections and tools for success. If you are a first-year student, you need to register for a New Student Conference. You are also encouraged to take Hullabaloo U, our first-year experience course, and participate in Howdy Week, our week of welcome activities for students.

Student Mobile App

Our Navigate Student mobile application helps you stay on track.

  • Viewing your class schedule and locations.
  • Staying on top of registration and academic and payment deadlines.
  • Scheduling advising appointments.

Honors Program

We offer honors experiences at the university, college, and departmental levels. You may join one or more programs that apply to your major. Honors education includes in-class and extracurricular activities that are broader and more complex than typical learning experiences.

Admission to some honors programs as an incoming freshman requires a separate honors application.

Gaining Work Experience

The Career Center can also help you find internships, co-ops and part- or full-time jobs. These work experiences will increase your skills and experience in your area of interest.

An internship is a work experience related to your major or industry of interest. It may or may not offer pay and academic credit. A cooperative education (co-op) program is a supervised academic program for qualified students. It combines semesters of academic study with paid, full-time work experience. Meanwhile, you will keep your full-time student status.

You can use the Career Center's HireAggies website to find internships, co-ops and jobs. Create an account to start your search.
