Students on academic probation or academic suspension are provided zero-hour, course-based support for academic recovery. Course curriculum and activities align with activities that lead to academic success in the students' other courses. Students meet with an academic recovery coach, receive coordinated care from other offices such as counseling services, engage with tutors for coursework, and more. All support is available both in-person and virtually. UNIV 2001, for students on academic probation, and UNIV 3001, for students on academic suspension, are designed for students to regain good academic standing, thereby increasing credit accumulation, increasing GPA, and decreasing time to completion.

The Academic Success Center's embedded tutoring program provides equitable access to academic support by aligning support between the instructor, the tutor, and the course content. Embedded tutors provide support to students enrolled in gateway courses such as MATH 1314 College Algebra, CHEM 1411 General Chemistry I, MATH 1420 Calculus, and more. The Academic Success Center identifies potential equity gaps in end-of-course outcomes and provides scaffolded and aligned academic support using in- and out-of-class tutoring. Tutors provide in-class support during classroom practice and activities, particularly in active learning classrooms. Tutors provide out-of-class support in study groups, one-on-one tutoring sessions, and review sessions. Tutoring services are located in a centralized tutoring and mentoring center inside the campus library to provide access to connect students to different support services. All tutoring is also available online.

Academic Support Referral (Early Alert)
Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating
0.0 stars

The Academic Support Referral (ASR) acts as an early alert system which is designed to increase students' persistence and promote the development of the intellectual and affective domains to improve how students learn. The University of Houston, Clear Lake is committed to make certain that students, faculty and staff are aware of the educational and academic support programs offered to students and has implemented a retention program through the Academic Support Referral. This program is managed by the Student Success Center (SSC). I feel everyone at the university has a vested interest in student success.
The Academic Support Referral exemplifies how the University of Houston, Clear Lake is an academic community, in every sense of the word. We come together to support those who are in need of assistance and to support student learning.

The Academic Support Referral program allows faculty to be proactive and involved in assisting with the student retention efforts, through the early detection and intervention of students who are experiencing problems that may affect their academic performance.

Academic Support Referrals are for student(s) for which faculty has a concern(s) and/or do not feel that you as faculty can provide the additional out-of-class support the student may need. The Student Success Center will contact the student, share the faculty member's concern(s), and the SSC will provide recommendations. Students will receive an alert email once faculty submits an ASR due to the following concerns:
• Excessive absences
• Missing tests or assignments
• Failure to complete homework
• Classroom behavior
• Tardiness
• Low scores on tests/assignments/quizzes

After the request is sent, the Assistant Director of the Student Success Center will contact the student within 72business hours (the SSC will make multiple attempts to contact the student). In addition, the Student Success Center will notify you, the instructor, as well as the student on the plans we deem necessary to assist the student personally and/or academically.

Coordinated Care Network
Rating
0.0 stars

SHSU is a partner of Navigate EAB and utilizes this technology as our primary student success management system. The Coordinated Care Network is a function of Navigate EAB and has been employed at SHSU as a retention-based partnership across several divisions. The Coordinated Care Network supports student success by bridging institutional efforts in receiving and triaging student alerts and referrals through Campus Connect (Navigate EAB). When faculty or staff issue an alert or referral, Campus Connect is configured to enact a chain of technology driven events to connect the student with the expert department who then provides appropriate intervention. Additionally, we target high-needs students to submit an alert or referral on themselves to receive assistance with their particular need(s). Overall, students who are alerted through the Coordinated Care Network and/or self-alert process experience positive gains in credit completion, term GPA outcomes, and persistence rates.

Course Embedded Tutoring

Rating
0.0 stars

Embedded tutors (ETs) work closely with instructors for the duration of a course to help students understand course concepts and enhance student engagement. The tutor attends class meetings each week, and class attendance is based on the needs of the students and the structure of the class. In the classroom, the ET functions as a mentor and a model for successful academic strategies and habits. ETs are not classroom observers, teaching assistants, personal assistants to the instructor, or instructors. They have authority over students because instructors introduce them into courses. ETs follow the same “hands-off” rules as tutors in the Student Success Center (SSC): Help students understand materials, but don't do the work for them. Embedded tutors use “best practices” learned during the tutor training they receive at the beginning of the semester of employment. The tutors are intended to optimize classroom learning by working with individuals and small groups, including going over an assignment, reviewing a key lesson or skill, and preparing for exams. ETs also take on an advocacy and intermediary role with students, voicing concerns and ideas to the instructor based on student feedback. Their presence in the classroom enables students to better understand their instructor and the lessons. In addition, the tutor may hold study sessions for students outside of the designated class time. Instructors recommend their embedded tutor(s) from students that have previously taken their course and received an “A” or “A-” in the course. Currently, all of the ETs are assigned to courses in the College of Science and Engineering.

Peer Mentoring (First Year Seminar courses)

Rating
0.0 stars

Peer Mentors have successfully completed the Learning Frameworks course and now work closely with the First-Year Seminar instructor to provide peer mentoring and instructional support to one section of the Learning Frameworks's first-year and transfer students. Coordinating with an assigned Learning Frameworks faculty member to prepare for each weekly lesson, peer mentors serve as liaisons between students and faculty. Peer mentors are also clearinghouses for student success resources and campus events. They exemplify critical thinking by modeling class assignments, assessing weekly writing assignments, and facilitating small group discussions. During weekly peer mentor-student conversations about academic success tips, co-curricular opportunities, and targeted workshops, they create an atmosphere of trust, responsibility, and encouragement with students.

The First-Year Seminar Peer Mentor Program also benefits peer mentor cohorts. Peer mentors develop leadership skills vital to college and professional success; receive mentorship from faculty supervisors; create a close community within their cohort through shared trainings and experiences; cultivate fairness by engaging in challenging assumptions about cross- and intra-cultural diversity; and participate in professional development opportunities such as presenting at academic conferences, moderating First-Year Seminar events, and networking with campus and community leaders.

The Scholar Enrichment Program (SEP) includes the TC Energy Summer Scholars Academy (SSA) and 1 credit hour supplemental instruction workshops supporting freshman level STEM courses. Low-income students from predominately minority serving high schools are recruited through site visits to their campuses, information sessions, email, and phone calls. All eligible students, however, are welcome to apply. During the SSA, students complete Calculus 1 and receive instruction in chemistry and college success. In the fall, students transition into the SEP where they receive continued mentoring, are placed in Collaborative Learning Groups for their STEM classes, and participate in career development activities. SSA students are encouraged to take on leadership roles as tutors, peer facilitators, and mentors as they advance through their studies. All students at the University are welcome to enroll in the SEP workshops that utilize peer facilitators to guide students through team-based problem-solving sessions to master challenging course material. Between 900-1000 students per semester enroll. The program is supported in part by a National Science Foundation Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation grant, the University of Houston, TC Energy, Conoco Phillips, Halliburton, and alumni donors.
