TCU Athletic Academic Services
TCU recognizes the special needs of today's NCAA Division I student-athlete and has made the commitment to address those needs with a comprehensive academic support program. In addition to the demands of being a student-athlete in a quality private institution such as TCU, Horned Frog student-athletes must also deal with the extra pressures associated with participating athletically in one of the most competitive conferences in the nation.
