General/Additional Admission Requirements

For admission to most programs offered by the university, it is necessary to meet the general admission requirements. There are several programs or majors that have additional requirements for admission. If an applicant to one of those programs with different requirements does not meet the stated standards, but does meet the general admission requirements, then that applicant may be admitted to the university as an undeclared major into Undergraduate Scholars at UH or admitted to the university by their second or third choice major.

For more information on UScholars, see the section on Undergraduate Scholars at UH.

International Student Admission Policies/Procedures

The following policy statement is applicable to undergraduate and postbaccalaureate applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents with international education credentials or foreign nationals holding a temporary visa permitting permanent residence in the U.S. Although U.S. citizens and permanent residents who completed their education outside the U.S. must demonstrate sufficient English proficiency (TOEFL), they are required to meet the academic requirements for U.S. citizens. All international Freshman applicants are highly recommended to submit SAT or ACT test scores to fulfill the English language Proficiency requirement.
