The Global Citizens Credential (GCC) is an undergraduate credential offered at the University of Houston that recognizes students for activities that build global knowledge and skills. This program is targeted to all globally engaged students. The Global Citizens Credential will allow students to enhance their degrees with a set of core competencies that will distinguish them as global citizens including global knowledge, global engagement, and global responsibility. Program completers are awarded a transcript notation, a Provost certificate, and an honor cord.
The GCC is open to any UH undergraduate student in good academic standing with a GPA of 2.00 or above
A graduate student level GCC is currently being developed with support from the Graduate School. More details will be given on this in fall 2022.
