Student success is a campus-wide effort — each and every college, school, and unit at The University of Texas at Austin is an essential partner in ensuring Longhorns have the resources they need to change the world. Student Success Initiatives is home to a number of programs and services that support the work of students, faculty, and staff across campus.
The Graduation Help Desk consolidates all the tools available to help students stay on track to graduate and offers students assistance enrolling in classes required to fulfill degree requirements. Graduation Help Desk staff work with students, advisors, and faculty to resolve roadblocks to timely graduation.
A common challenge faced by students early in their college career is finding the right academic path — students often learn that science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is not a good fit for them early in their first semester. Major Switch was created to give students the opportunity to transfer to non-STEM major courses mid-semester, save their GPAs, and stay on track to timely graduation.

Student Success Initiatives partners with the Office of Admissions and the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to provide scholarships that recognize students’ hard work and help support their timely graduation
Students commit to graduating on time. We help them get there. By enrolling in Senior Countdown, students are given priority access to the Graduation Help Desk and are guaranteed access to courses they need to graduate.
Each semester, Student Success Initiatives hosts a Student Success Symposium, where colleagues from across campus convene to celebrate the efforts of the campus community and learn about goals for the coming year.
Effective academic advising is an essential component of student success. Texas Advising Excellence promotes student success by advocating for the academic advising community, providing outlets for sharing knowledge and information through cross-campus collaboration and communication.
