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 Exploratory Studies at UH or admitted to the university by their second or third choice major.

For more information on Exploratory Studies, visit www.uh.edu/provost/exploratorystudies.
