Comprehensive Student Success Program
The Comprehensive Student Success Program (CSSP) is a part of the THECB College Access Challenge Grant, funded by the United States Department of Education. The purpose of the CSSP is to improve student success in postsecondary institutions.
Pilot projects began in April 2011, targeting data-driven student support interventions and enhanced faculty training to increase student completion and success rates in entry-level, gatekeeper courses. Institutions identified courses with high non-completion rates for intervention. Grantees integrate research-based practices into these courses and institutional policies and practices to increase student persistence and success through targeted interventions. Upon award, grantees are eligible for up to five years of funding, depending on sites meeting project expectations and availability of funds.
Among the 2012-2013 Grantees, Texas Woman's University was recognized for developing individual success plans to guide students to supplemental instruction, tutoring, academic advising, and mentoring services through a collaborative early alert system.
