Project GRAD


Project GRAD: Graduation and Retention through Academic Diversity is a project led by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMUCC) in which a seamless pipeline has been formed to increase the number and proportion of high-need students who are academically prepared for, enroll in, and graduate from college. 



The TSIA Summer Prep Academy aims to prepare students who did not pass one or more sections of the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) through a summer bridge experience. The goal of the TSIA Summer Prep Academy is to assist underprepared students with math, reading, and writing skills so they can retest the TSI and avoid the developmental pipeline. Through academic preparation courses, College 101 workshops, and a mentor program, students are provided support for a successful transition to college through graduation.  


Project GRAD develops and implements engagement events for students and their families on campus. Events range from financial literacy and planning, the college experience for students and parents, and social engagement. All events are free to students and their families.
