The Wintrode Student Success Center features the
These programs continue the efforts of Virgil and Josephine Wintrode to help students overcome obstacles and gain the skills they need to move forward with confidence.
Wintrode Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction Program
SDSU students can receive free tutoring in select courses through scheduled appointments or walk-in sessions. We also offer free Supplemental Instruction (SI) for a wide range of courses.
Tutoring and SI are provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material, improve their grades, and increase their self-confidence about course material.
First Year Advising Center
The First-Year Advising Center (FYAC) is designed to help students transition to college and build a firm academic foundation.
Academic advisors in the FYAC work with most incoming first-year students and all students who have not declared a major.
Academic Success & Recovery Program
The Academic Success & Recovery Program supports students who are currently on probation or have been readmitted to South Dakota State University following suspension.
We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to succeed, and we are committed to helping you achieve your potential.
The Wintrodes Make a Difference
Students with outstanding academic records have many friends who want to reward their success. When it came to assisting students, however, Virgil and Josephine Wintrode always preferred to put their money on the student who needed just a little encouragement.
The Wintrode Student Success Center is funded by the Wintrode Endowment through the SDSU Foundation.
