What student success data does LU track and how is it used?

We look at multiple indicators before a student attends Lamar University, such as high school performance, standardized test scores, and geographical location. Once on campus, we track real time data on students' participation in classes and support services utilized on campus. We use this information to streamline suggestions for best fit resources and support based on unique student's situations as early as possible.

What does LU do if I’m struggling in class?

Various resources on campus (such as The Tutoring Center, The Math Shop, The Writing Center) conduct outreach throughout the semester to students who have been identified as potentially struggling in their class by the professor to offer tutoring assistance where needed.  These services are included in Lamar University's student fees and are highly recommended.

Does LU have academic progress reports?

Yes, progress reports are sent to professors once-twice a semester to complete and check student's academic progress.  Professors are also encouraged to issue early alerts on a student's academic progress for various offices on campus to intervene. Once an alert is issued, an appropriate support service will follow up with the student.
