Transfer Students

Applicants are considered transfer students if you:

  • are a student who earned 15 or more transferable hours of college credit after high school graduation (during fall/spring semester) and
  • do not qualify for readmission and
  • are a U.S. citizen, have applied for permanent residency, or qualify for Texas residency based on Senate Bill 1528

The ApplyTexas application and portfolio should be submitted by the February 1st priority application deadline. Applicants must meet general University admissions requirements before being accepted by the University of Houston. Applicants who indicate Architecture, Interior Architecture, or Industrial Design as their first choice major will be considered for admission into the College of Architecture and Design. No additional application is required.

Once applicants are admitted to the University of Houston, all applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a portfolio, including a statement of interest. Only those applicants admitted to the University of Houston will be invited to submit a portfolio for consideration by the College of Architecture and Design.
