We Help You Achieve Academic Success

The Student Success Center at University of Houston-Clear Lake is a comprehensive academic support department that offers:


Tutoring covers many classes from all four Colleges at UHCL and offers students one-on-one appointments, drop-in tutoring, or online sessions. Tutoring is designed to help students improve their learning of course content as well as develop course specific skills necessary for their success.

Embedded Tutoring

Embedded Tutoring is an intense academic support structure for specific courses. Course-embedded tutors work closely with faculty to design weekly activities and/or tasks to interact with students during the class. Students who work with the embedded tutors will have the opportunity to meet with the tutor(s) before the class starts or after the class ends. The embedded tutor may also hold study sessions for students outside of the designated class time.

Academic Coaching

Academic Coaching provides students with one-on-one, personalized skill building in areas like reading strategies, time and task management, note taking strategies, public speaking, test strategies and organization. Students are matched with a coach based on their schedule and needs and meet for weekly 50-minute coaching sessions. Students may decide to participate for multiple semesters or just a few weeks.

Academic Skills Workshops

Academic Skills Workshops are an interactive 50-minute overview of topics like public speaking, apps and sites for student success, test strategy, note taking, organization, time and task management, and reading strategies. Workshops are open to all UHCL students and staff.

CRLA ITTPC Tutoring Program Certification

The Student Success Center is certified with CRLA (College Reading & Learning Association) ITTPC (International Tutor Training Program Certification) at Levels I, II, III and Master Certified Tutor



The tutors... were encouraging, friendly, knowledgeable, and very patient.
