0.0 stars

The Scholar Enrichment Program (SEP) includes the TC Energy Summer Scholars Academy (SSA) and 1 credit hour supplemental instruction workshops supporting freshman level and gateway 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. SEP also offers a tutoring center providing support for 20 different STEM courses. 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.

DELIVERY FORMAT: The program is in-person only.

PROGRAM SCALE: Medium-scale (reaches between 10 and 25 percent of its target population)

APPROXIMATE PARTICIPANTS SERVED IN 2021-22: 2320

HOW TO ENROLL: Students apply for the Summer Scholars Academy and to serve as mentors, tutors, and peer facilitators for the program. Students self-enroll into the supplementary instruction workshops.

Student success is a key strategic goal at UH as we strive to create a learning environment in which student success can be ensured. Toward this end, UHin4 was launched in 2014 to create an institutional culture consistent with four-year graduation expectations and deploy tools that enable students to graduate on time. This initiative is a partnership with students that provides a comprehensive graduation plan. A cornerstone of UHin4 is the Freshman Four-Year Graduation Plan that outlines responsibilities of both students and the University in achieving timely college completion. Initial student eligibility requirements include admission to a four-year major or as an undeclared major and enrollment in at least 15 hours at the University of Houston during the first fall semester of attendance. To maintain eligibility and meet ongoing responsibilities, students are required to successfully complete a minimum of 30 semester credit hours per year toward their degree, remain in good academic standing, meet with an advisor each semester, select courses consistent with degree requirements, provide notification of course unavailability, and monitor their degree progress. University responsibilities include delivery of courses needed for four-year degree completion, providing updated Four-Year Academic Maps that reflect current degree requirements in a recommended sequence over eight semesters, ensuring advisor availability, providing degree monitoring tools, and making appropriate course substitutions to allow timely graduation as needed. The graduation agreement also includes a guarantee that students who have maintained eligibility and fulfilled their responsibilities under the plan but do not graduate in four years will pay no tuition beyond four years if the University is responsible for the delay. Students who sign-up for the graduation plan receive access to the Fixed Four-Year Tuition plan which guarantees the same tuition rate for four consecutive academic years from the initial fall term of enrollment.

DELIVERY FORMAT: The program has a hybrid format.
