Academic Success/Student Services

Academic Services at the University of Houston aim to support Cougar athletes in their primary goal of earning a degree, while also assisting them to prepare for life after college through career resources and broadening their horizons by exposing them to community service opportunities.

Under the direction of the Assistant Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Services, Maria Peden, the Student-Athlete Academic Services unit runs a comprehensive program. In addition to Peden, the staff includes an academic coordinators, four academic counselors, and an outreach intern who assists over 350 UH student-athletes in 16 sports. One of the greatest resources available to current Cougar student-athletes is the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), which is located in the Athletics/Alumni Center.

Open from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. weekdays and 6:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. on Sunday, ACE includes a 22-station computer lab with IBM and Macintosh computers. The computers are updated annually and all have internet access, CD-ROM capabilities and are connected on-line with the M.D. Anderson Library on campus. Each computer is connected to laser printers and includes a wide variety of word processing, spreadsheet, study skills tutorials and career education software packages.

ACE also offers a career resource library, a community service office, two 50-person classrooms, five six-person small group study rooms and 16 one-on-one individual tutoring areas.

Study hall hours are designated for each team, and all freshmen student-athletes attend mandatory study halls. Tutors are available to assist all student-athletes in a variety of subjects.

Cougar team grade point averages are on the rise because academic success has been a point of emphasis of UH Director of Athletics, Dave Maggard, since he arrived on campus. All student-athletes, coaches and Academic Services support staff, in conjunction with the UH faculty, share the same commitment for educating and graduating every UH student-athlete who puts on the Red and White Cougar uniform.

The University of Houston student-athletes continue to improve academically. After the fall semester, six of our programs had average grade point averages of 2.70 or above with three programs above a 3.00. Thirty-eight student-athletes were named to the Dean's List, while 111 student-athletes attained a GPA of 3.00 or better.

The University of Houston celebrated the graduation of almost 50 student-athletes at its annual student-athlete graduation reception.
