    The College Success Program (CSP) supports students that are First Time In College Freshmen (aka "FTIC") who have not yet declared a major and is also open to students in a major who are interested in making their transition into university life a positive and successful experience. Our program is intentionally designed to guide students through a curriculum developed to enhance the life skills of CSP students and to prepare them to declare a University of Houston major that bests suits the student so that they can achieve both their academic and career goals. Besides FTIC students, CSP serves several other populations including students transferring to UH from another institution (other than high school) looking to explore our many academic options. Our transfer students are served by informative orientation sessions and the Next S.T.E.P. program which was developed to help students adjust to the academic rigor at UH, and to learn more about UH resources, activities, traditions, and spirit.

    CSP is also committed to assisting students who may be facing some academic performance challenges including being place on academic warning, probation or suspension. These students may be struggling with coursework, time manage ment, personal situations, or having the motivation to accomplish their academic and personal goals. Through completion of required workshops, UScholars staff help struggling students to develop a plan that will get them back on track to graduation. CSP offers students many benefits including a computer lab, one-on-one and small group tutoring for most of the core curriculum, peer mentors that are experienced and successful students, academic and student development workshops, and scholarships.
