2017-2018 Academic Catalog

Success Center


The Success Center on the Washington Street Campus is located on the third floor of the Ware Student Commons.  Other Success Centers are being developed on West Campus, East Campus, Hereford and Moore County Campus.  These centers are each set-up to meet the needs of students at each campus.  At all locations we strive to provide highly in-depth and individualized experiences to ensure student success.  Services include but may vary depending on location:

Developmental Advising

We discuss and assist our students with developmental placement and acceleration options, while working to help each student find a good balance between school and work as they begin their college journey.

MAPS (Mandatory Pre-Assessment Sessions)

Sessions are offered daily on the Washington Street Campus to students interested in taking the TSI assessment (Texas Success Initiative).  This information session is required of all students prior to taking the TSI.

TSI Quick Reviews

Sessions are offered to students who have never taken the TSI or want to retake the TSI.  Instructors work one-on-one with students to review skills.  No appointment is necessary and there is no fee for this service.  Hours vary from campus to campus.

Math Workshop Options

Appointments are necessary, although there is no cost to the student.

Save-a-Semester - Students can schedule to be part of an intensive review of math skills to prepare to take a challenge test for each level of developmental math.  Students are given only one attempt at each challenge test level.

Rapid Reviews - Students can schedule to be part of an intensive review of higher level math skills to prepare to test or retest the TSI math test.

Reading Option

No appointment necessary and no cost to the student.  Students complete the department reading test to save a semester of developmental reading.
