Resources for School Counselors

The University of Houston provides school counselors with admissions resources to help students learn more about educational opportunities available here. We are committed to providing future students the best answers to questions about our community. We understand that students, parents, counselors, and teachers need to be well informed in order to make decisions about higher education.

Check out our counselor handout, designed for counselors to share with their students. This handout gives an overview of UH admissions information.
