Faculty Resources

testing center

The Student Success Center works closely with faculty to support academic student success at UT Dallas. We partner with faculty to:

  • Connect with students about available resources in writing, math, science and other subjects.
  • Recruit qualified tutors, PLTL leaders and SI Leaders.
  • Provide a secure testing environment.
  • Provide real-time feedback for our staff on student academic needs.

Our Services Include

Writing Center

Whether your students are just starting college or working on a dissertation, the Writing Center is a resource to help them improve their writing.

Our consultants will work with students on anything from rhetorical analysis papers, to personal essays, to graduate school applications.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a formal partnership between a faculty member and a SI leader. The SI leader candidates are recommended by faculty.

Once chosen, the SI leader will set-up weekly appointments to meet with the faculty member for resources, assistance, and course direction.

SI offers FREE, out of class, study sessions for historically difficult courses. Our institutional data shows that students who regularly attend SI earn, on average, 1/2 to 1 whole letter grade higher than non-SI participants.

Testing Center

The Testing Center is a proctored, technologically advanced computer testing lab with more than 150 computers to support online exams and quizzes in an array of courses.

Academic integrity is ensured in the Testing Center through video surveillance and remote monitoring of each individual computer station inside the Testing Center. Students are prohibited from bringing any testing aids or personal items into the Testing Center. Lockers are provided free of charge. A valid UT Dallas ID is required to take exams.

Math Lab

The Math Lab is staffed by learning specialists and tutors who help undergraduates and graduates become successful.

Peer-Led Team Learning

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) is an innovative model for engaging students—especially in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

Sessions are designed to encourage problem-solving strategies in pairs and in groups. UT Dallas and national studies show that students who regularly attend PLTL earn, on average, 1/2 to 1 whole letter grade higher than non-PLTL participants.

Peer Tutoring

Check our website each semester to see which subjects have free tutoring available. If your course would benefit from Peer Tutoring, ask your department head to contact the Program Coordinator.
