Postbaccalaureate Students

Admission Requirements  > Other Student Admission Considerations > Postbaccalaureate Students

Postbaccalaureate students are students who have earned a bachelor’s degree or higher at a regionally accredited institution. Some course work taken in the postbaccalaureate status may be applied toward a graduate degree, but there are limitations that particularly affect those students whose goal it is to earn a graduate degree at the University of Houston. These restrictions include the following:

  1. Postbaccalaureate students are not eligible to take undergraduate business courses and may not pursue an undergraduate degree in the Bauer College of Business.
  2. Enrollment in graduate level courses in some colleges is either prohibited (e.g., the Bauer College of Business) or severely limited (e.g., the Cullen College of Engineering).
  3. Application of course work completed as a postbaccalaureate student toward a graduate degree is restricted and is subject to the approval of the individual department after enrollment as a graduate student.

Students who wish to obtain postbaccalaureate status at the University of Houston should submit an application for undergraduate transfer admission and official transcripts from their previous institutions showing the bachelor’s degree posted.

Students with degrees from the University of Houston need not submit official UH transcripts.

The deadlines stated previously for undergraduate students are applicable to those seeking admission as postbaccalaureate students.
