South Texas Writing Project Offers
New Summer Camps at TAMIU

You can improve your (Texas Higher Education Assessment) THEA score with help from Texas A&M International University's free seven-day Summer Academic Mathematics and Writing Boot Camp offered by the University College.

Registration is open until the date of each camp.

Register at Dr. Billy F. Cowart Hall (BCH), rooms 205 and 203.

Two Boot Camps are scheduled: July 12 – 21 and July 26 – Aug. 4, 9 a.m. – noon or 1 – 4:30 p.m.

The Summer Boot Camps are for students who scored: writing—220 THEA or a five essay on Compass; math—230-249 THEA or 39 – 44 on Compass.

The Summer Boot Camps provide a curriculum of content review and test practice so students may more effectively prepare for the THEA to improve skill levels in reading, writing and math.

Only current TAMIU students or students registered at TAMIU for Fall 2010 in developmental status may apply.
