About Us

Our Mission

The Student Success Center supports undergraduate students by optimizing campus resources through innovative and intentional programs, which empowers students to attain academic success and persist toward graduation and beyond.

Who We Are

The Student Success Center is comprised of several people and departments whose main focus is your success. Our individual units include the Academic Assistance and Resource Center (AARC), SFA 101, and Academic Advising/TSI (Texas Success Initiative). In addition, the SSC houses two coordinators who focus on unique areas--transfer students, and special student populations including the GenJacks program, the Smith Hutson scholarship program, and the Buddy Low scholarship program. The SSC also partners with various units around campus and regularly builds programs and initiatives to better help students through their SFA journey.
