PIVOT for Academic Success

PIVOT for Academic Success is a Department of Education Title V supported set of programs created to prepare, inspire, validate, orient and transition (PIVOT) students through a targeted array of academic and social student support services to achieve six goals:


  • Further develop and support an institution-wide culture at UTSA that actively recognizes, encourages and supports its first-generation, low socioeconomic and Hispanic students
  • Increase the number of transfer students who graduate from UTSA with a bachelor’s degree
  • Increase the number of first-time, full-time Hispanic, low socioeconomic and first-generation students who graduate with a bachelor’s degree
  • Increase the number of students who pass the university’s MAT 1073, Algebra for Scientists and Engineers, course with a grade of B or better so they have a strong foundation for subsequent math course work in science and engineering
  • Increase the number of students who graduate with an associate’s degree from one of the Alamo Colleges
  • Increase the number of Alamo Colleges graduates who transfer to UTSA as bachelor’s degree-seeking students
