Academic Success/Student Services

The Student-Athlete Development Program (Academics) at the University of Houston aims to support Houston student-athletes in their primary goal of earning a degree, while also assisting them to prepare for life after college through participation in the Leadership Academy, and broadening their horizons by exposing them to community service opportunities.

Under the direction of the Associate Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Development, Maria Peden, the Student-Athlete Academic Services unit - the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) runs a comprehensive program. In addition to Peden, the staff includes six full-time academic counselors, a Senior Learning Specialist, two part-time Learning Assistants and a full-time Tutoring Coordinator who assist over 350 UH student-athletes in 17 sports. The Academic Center for Excellence and the Cougar Pride Leadership Academy are located in the Athletics/Alumni Center.

Open from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. weekdays and 2:00 p.m. - 8 p.m. on Sunday, ACE includes a Laptop Library, with over 60 laptops available for check-out, and a Student-Athlete Lounge with 12 IBM-pc stations, two printers, 3 flat-screen TVs and space for quiet study/relaxation.

ACE also offers 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, monitored by the academic counselors or learning assistants. A staff of twenty part-time tutors are available to assist all student-athletes in a variety of subjects and is required for athletes taking Math, English, Political Science and History.

All student-athletes, coaches and academic services support staff, in conjunction with the UH faculty, share the same commitment of 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. The 2012 fall semester saw several academic records set as the average student-athlete passeD 13.9 credit hours per semester with a 2.87 or higher (the highest overall gpa in program history). In addition, 22 percent of student-athletes earned Dean's List honors. In the spring of 2013, UH student-athletes posted a record 2.85 cumulative GPA, the highest ever after a spring semester.

Records continued to fall in the fall of 2013 as Houston student-athletes set the highest cumulative GPA, 2.95, in department history while also hitting a record fall GPA of 2.92.

Academic achievements rolled in again in 2014 as Houston student-athletes set the highest GPA ever after a spring semester, 2.89, and the highest ever GPA ever for a spring term, 2.82. There was no rest in the fall however as a semester GPA of 2.84 ranked as the second-best fall semester in UH history while the 2.89 cumulative GPA ranked as the second-best following a fall semester.

The 2015 spring semester provided no change as Houston student-athletes combined for the best spring semester grade point average in UH history, 2.92, the best cumulative GPA following a spring semester, 2.92, and the most hours ever passed per student-athlete in the spring semester with an average of 13.88 hours per student-athlete.
