Office for Student Success
The mission of the Office for Student Success is to amplify student success needs at Texas A&M University by assessing and addressing policies and procedures on student persistence, achievement, and timely graduation. As an extension of the Office of the Provost and the Student Success Initiative, our office was created in 2019 to increase first-year retention and timely graduation rates and decrease achievement disparities. To all undergraduate, first-generation, and transfer students: we are your advocates.
- Academic Advising: Our office provides leadership for Academic Advising at Texas A&M University through training and professional development. We also help undergraduate students stay on track for graduation through in-person and virtual advising sessions. Students can ask questions through our Student Success Help Desk and find their departmental advisors through Find My Advisor.
- Hullabaloo U: Texas A&M's first-year experience course is designed to help freshmen make a successful transition to Aggieland. Each 25-student section meets for 50 minutes a week with their faculty/staff instructor and student peer mentor to discuss topics such as adjusting to college life, taking advantage of campus resources, and contributing to our diverse and inclusive environment as a member of the Aggie community. First-year students will learn more about Hullabaloo U at their New Student Conference.
- The Routh First-Generation Center: The Routh First-Generation Center supports all first-generation students at Texas A&M University through high-impact experiences, student involvement opportunities, and a Gen1 Learning Community. First-gen students – students whose parents or guardians have not earned a bachelor’s degree – are invited to visit the Routh First-Generation Center Lounge and get involved with our staff, resources, and events throughout their time at Texas A&M. Nearly 25% of Texas A&M students are first-generation and we believe that should be celebrated!
- Transfer Student Program: Students transferring to Texas A&M University can find resources and support from the Transfer Student Program (TSP). TSP helps undergraduate students, Veterans, and non-traditional students get connected with a community. TSP hosts transfer peer mentorship, a Transfer Connection Workshop series, academic and social programming, and so much more! Visit us in the Transfer Village (Hotard Hall) to get involved.
- Navigate Student: Make every semester count with the Navigate Student app! Designed to get you from NSC to graduation, students can view their class schedule, explore campus resources, schedule advising appointments, keep up with deadlines, and much more. Available in the App Store and Google Play.
The Office for Student Success is located in Hotard Hall – across the street from Northside Garage.
