We review individual’s documentation of disability and assess eligibility for services and determination of reasonable accommodations.

Our motivation is to help students develop the skills necessary to achieve academic success and independence in a supportive learning environment that fosters intellectual growth.

 

  • Student Support Services (SSS): The Student Support Services program is a federally funded TRIO program through the United States Department of Education and is committed to identifying, attracting, and graduating students, especially those from low-income and first generation groups who have been historically underrepresented in Texas higher education. The emphasis is to provide a special environment in which students can come for assistance in meeting their academic, personal, career, cultural awareness, and social needs. 

 

  • Office of Distance Education: Texas A&M Corpus Christi adopts e-learning technologies and processes to positively transform teaching methods such that students are fully engaged in learning and do not drop out of courses. In addition, space constraints are relieved by the use of online experiences for students outside of physical classrooms. Online degree and certificate programs are offered that meet the needs of citizens in Texas. And, in the event of a disaster, faculty and students are able to continue the business of education by using online technologies.
