We put students first by providing various resources, services, and programming that support the academic and personal development of our students throughout their college experience.
When you need a little help studying…
Tomás Rivera Center: Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction
Academic support for courses in biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, mathematics, statistics and business. Students can access free drop-in, appointment-based, and group tutoring.
Peer mentors are fellow students who serve as mentors, but they are part of the First Year Experience (FYE) and help first-year freshmen specifically. They meet with freshmen to ensure they’re adjusting to college life and are on a path to success.
The Writing Center
Helps students through each step of the writing process from brainstorming, establishing a thesis and achieving coherence to recording and revising grammatical errors.
UTSA has three libraries that provide all the space, technology, materials and personalized help you need to for academic success.
When you need to discuss your future plans…
Student Success Center
Houses select student support programs, such as the Tomás Rivera Center’s Academic Success Coaching, as well as all academic advising offices. Academic advisors can help students figure out their degree plan, graduation and more.
Academic Success Coaching
Serves as academic mentors to new students and can help develop or improve study habits, prep for exams, use proper time management and more. Academic Success Coaching, along with other support programs, is housed in the Student Success Center.
Graduation Help Desk (GHD)
Support center that can help ensure that your graduation stays on track. The GHD also works to identify common reasons for delayed graduations, especially if those reasons relate to institutional policies or procedures.
Stay healthy inside and out.
UTSA utilizes an integrated approach to student physical and mental health to promote student success and wellbeing. The Mental Health Service provides same-day consultations, short-term individual counseling, group counseling, psychiatry and a 24/7 Crisis Helpline.
Wellness 360 is a nurse-led clinic, located at UTSA and operated by UT Health San Antonio, that offers a number of services including primary care, prescriptions, women’s health, chronic conditions and much more!
Student Support Services
The term Dreamer(s) addresses undocumented students with and without Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Our Dreamers Resource Center provides resources and information to help Dreamer students know their rights and ensure their success and graduation from UTSA.
First-Generation students (First-Gen for short) are defined as students whose parent(s) or guardian(s) have not completed a four-year degree. Our First-Gen & Transfer Student Center guides these students to success through activities, mentorships, and building a sense of community.
The First-Year Experience (also known as FYE) helps students adjust to life as a college student. First year freshmen are given a peer mentor who provides them with support in their studies as well as their social and personal lives.
The Multicultural Student Center works to build a sense of community at UTSA and San Antonio. The Center hosts equity-based trainings and works with student organizations to create programs and events that foster reflection and engagement with the many cultural backgrounds and identities of our diverse Roadrunner student body.
We strive to empower UTSA students with a history of foster care through our Fostering Educational Success Center. The FESC provides these students with various resources including incentives for enrollment and participation, emergency funds, peer mentoring, laptops available for checkout, and more.
At UTSA, we provide support for transfer students before, during, and after their time as a Roadrunner. From digital resources like our transfer credit calculator, appointing students their own transfer advisor, and our scholarships intended strictly for transfer students, we work to ensure our transfer students are successful and satisfied with their time at UTSA.
We pride ourselves on our service to Military Affiliated Students, whether they be dependents of military members, veterans, or active duty. Our Center for Military Affiliated Students (CMAS) makes sure our students have all the help they need while at UTSA.
