Visiting students are not eligible for financial aid.
Once admitted as a visiting student, no application is necessary for enrollment in future term sessions. Enrollment as a degree-seeking student requires a visiting student to complete the Visiting to Degree-Seeking student form, meet admission requirements of the University of Houston (and their intended major) and submit all transcripts from previous colleges or universities attended.
