Graduate Classification

The University classifies a student as a graduate student when an admission application and the required credentials have been submitted, the student has been approved for admission, and has registered for classes as a graduate student at the University of Houston.  All graduate students must go through the formal application process in order to obtain the graduate student classification.

Post-baccalaureate Status

The post-baccalaureate status is designed for applicants who have earned one or more degrees at an accredited institution and seek another undergraduate degree, wish to enter a non-degree undergraduate  program, or wish to further their education by taking undergraduate courses in varying fields of study.

Students who would like more information on post-baccalaureate status should consult the Undergraduate Studies Catalog, and complete the undergraduate application on the online application web site.
