Student Success

UH is committed to student success — our programs support first generation, transfer, and traditional college students. We empower you from the moment you are accepted to graduate in four years and stay connected to the history and traditions of the University. Begin with New Student Orientation, where you develop strong bonds with classmates, learn the rich history of UH and begin your experience with confidence. Enroll in UH in 4 — by graduating in 4 years, families save time and money because students can enter the workforce or begin graduate studies as quickly as possible.
