Submitting Transcript Info
To expedite admission decisions, the University of Houston requires U.S. freshmen applicants to self-report high school grades as part of the admissions application process. Applicants must report grades from all English, math, science, and social studies courses.
There are various ways for your students to send their transcripts to UH, including electronically or by mail. View our Transcript Submission Guidelines webpage for more details.
