Graduate Status

Admission to all graduate programs in the College of Education is selective and often very competitive.  Simply meeting the minimal criteria does not ensure admission.  Admission to one of the College’s masters or doctoral degree programs requires the completion of the application requirements outlined by the Program, the Department, and the College. 

Admission to graduate programs at the University of Houston requires a 2.6 cumulative undergraduate  Grade Point Average (GPA) or over the last 60 credit hours of coursework.  Applicants who do not meet this requirement should address, in their goal statement, the reasons for their undergraduate degree performance and discuss other academic indicators that provide supportive evidence of their potential to meet the demands of rigorous study at the graduate level.

 All College of Education departments and programs have additional admission requirements, which may include letters of reference, resume, statement of interest, or a personal interview.  Deadlines for submission of application materials vary by specific program. For more information, consult the appropriate academic program.

Professional Certificates

Individuals with a bachelor’s or master’s degree who wish to receive professional certificate can apply.  To apply for a professional certificate, individuals must complete an application for admission and submit all required supplemental materials.     

Students who later decide to apply for admission to a graduate degree program must complete an application for admission and submit all supplemental materials.  Students may apply six (6) graduate credit hours taken toward a degree. The six (6) graduate credit hours must be approved by the faculty advisor, and must be applicable to that degree.
