General Academic Regulations and Requirements

The regulations and degree requirements outlined here have been approved by the Graduate and Professional Studies Committee (GPSC).  Due to the very nature of graduate and post-baccalaureate professional education, students admitted to graduate and professional studies at the University of Houston should expect the coursework to be at a more advanced level.  In addition, students are expected to display a greater level of maturity and self-learning skills.

Since each individual college within the University of Houston establishes and monitors its own graduate programs, these university regulations are established as minimal standards for graduate studies at UH.  Each individual college or graduate and professional program may have entrance requirements and degree requirements that exceed these established by the university. Each prospective graduate student must contact the individual college or department for information concerning its graduate or professional requirements.
