Students are encouraged to meet with advisors in programs and with TWU Career Services their first semester on campus in order to develop or refine career goals and to develop a career plan.
- The Math and Technology Success Center is available to assist TWU students in reaching their educational goals in math and technology through technology programs and individual and group tutoring. Tutoring is provided to TWU students who are enrolled in math and technology courses, enrolled in any courses with math and technology components, or preparing to pass the math section of THEA.
- Science Learning Resource Center (SLRC) offers a variety of resources for freshman and sophomore students taking biology, chemistry, and physics courses. SLRC offers programs called "kits" on CD or video format; online chemistry homework for various introductory chemistry courses; and peer tutors for freshman and sophomore students in biology, chemistry, and physics.
- The Write Site offers trained tutors who provide support and guidance to university students seeking to improve their skills in composition. These services are provided to university students free of charge and are intended as assistance to students of every level of writing experience and skill. The Write Site strives to help writers develop their composition skills by assisting them with individual papers in an intensive, non-threatening, one-on-one setting.
- The Online Writing Lab (OWL) is another option for those students who are unable to visit the Write Site. The goal of OWL is to provide an opportunity for students to have a trained reader offer feedback and guidance to help them improve not only a given written product, but their writing processes and practices as well.
- Bridges to the Bacculaureate is a program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that Texas Woman's University along with several community colleges in the area participate in to assist more individuals from underrepresented ethnic groups to pursue a baccalaureate degree in mathematics or science. This program was developed so students can eventually obtain a Ph.D. degree and build a career in biomedical research. This program is part of a nationwide endeavor to increase the number of underrepresented groups in biomedical research. Bridges students have access to research faculty as well as peer mentors. The Bridges Program also provides opportunities for participants to learn more about biomedical research by offering seminars, laboratory tours, a summer preparatory course for research, and research-related events.
- MentorNet - Each Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, and Mathematics major at TWU has access to MentorNet, an award-winning, electronic mentoring network that has been shown to positively affect the retention and success of those in science and mathematics, particularly but not exclusively women and others underrepresented in these fields. MentorNet provides participating students with positive, one-on-one, email-based relationships with mentors from industry, government, and higher education. TWU students began participating in this program in Spring 2007.
Throughout the College of Arts and Sciences there are numerous opportunities for student internships in various fields of study.
