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 located 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:

 

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.

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.

Amarillo College Tutoring for Success Policy

The Tutoring for Success policy applies to any student whose grade or performance in the course falls below a departmentally determined minimum threshold. In either of those cases, the instructor will direct the student to the appropriate tutoring service, which may be faculty-led, discipline-specific, and/or general. Under this policy, the instructor will follow specific departmental guidelines governing the use, duration, and grade component of the tutoring need.
