Academic Success

Success Starts Here

Academic Advising

The University Advising team is dedicated to providing data, resources, leadership, and professional development to all professional academic advisors, faculty advisors, and college/departmental administration to ensure valuable academic advising is an institutional priority. The Department of Academic Success works to create an advising community that unifies academic departments and colleges and supports all undergraduate advisors, and through them, all undergraduate students.


Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are voluntary, regularly scheduled study groups that support some of UT Tyler's more difficult courses. These courses are identified in the course schedule each semester.

Study sessions are led by faculty-identified students who have previously completed the courses successfully and are trained to facilitate sessions. Information on successful note taking, study strategies and test preparation along with course content are emphasized within the SI sessions.

UT Tyler students who have participated in SI sessions have consistently demonstrated improved grades and course completion success.

PASS Tutoring Center

The PASS (Patriot Academic Success Services) Tutoring Center is a free walk-in tutoring center, with an individual appointment option, for current UT Tyler students. Support for 28 courses is being offered in a variety of subjects. Those chosen for coverage are selected because of their historically high failure and withdrawal rates at UT Tyler.

The Free Tutoring Schedule can be accessed by following this link.
