HETS supports Students (Part 1)

HETS has developed a section at the Virtual Plaza site to support students needs in College even at High School. This section includes Tools, Resources and Study Aids about readiness, learning, technology and success for Hispanic / Latino  Students pursuing opportunities to succeed in Higher Education. Starting with this article we will highlight some of the Student Support Services we have.

Our focus is to provide free or low-cost services or resources to help students meet their academic goals. We have divided this area in sections that we believe makes sense to you. Therefore, we have Resources and Services to help students determine their future careers using tools validated by third party organizations. Study aids are included to help Hispanic students overcome deficiencies with English, Science, Math, Engineering, and Technology.
