Admission Requirements  > Transfer Student Admission Requirements > Introduction

In accordance with the UH System Strategic principles, the University of Houston actively provides outreach and recruits transfer students from junior colleges, community colleges, and other lower-division institutions of higher education. The outreach and recruiting programs include junior college and community college visits by transfer admission counselors, Discover UH Days, and Transfer Counselor Updates which provide prospective transfer students and community college counselors with information regarding the transfer application process, transfer admission criteria, and academic programs. The University of Houston also offers Transfer Excellence Scholarships and Phi Theta Kappa Scholarships to transfer students who meet the scholarship criteria.

The University of Houston (UH) also partners with many of the Community Colleges in the Houston metropolitan area to offer a Joint Admissions program that guarantees university admission to any student who completes the associate’s degree (A.A., A.A.T., or A.S.). The agreement benefits students by reducing the total cost of higher education by encouraging students to complete the associate’s degree at the community college. Students also benefit from improved and collaborative academic advising and by completion of joint admissions contracts. This agreement provides only for general admission to the University of Houston. Requirements for admission to individual academic programs may vary. (found at
