The rapid expansion of access to the Internet has created new opportunities for meeting UHD students’ educational needs. UHD offers a growing selection of upper division courses delivered over the web in support of degree programs. The courses are organized to pro­vide students with a variety of activities designed to enhance the educational experience while providing the student with flexibility in taking the course. Students generally work within defined time frames for completion of course modules, and they often have the opportunity to interact directly in real-time with fellow students and their professor through chats and bulletin board discussions.

To meet students’ needs to access education anytime, anywhere, the University of Houston Downtown offers degree completion programs online. Students complete the required lower division course work, and UHD provides the upper division course work online for the degree.  Classes offered are identical to those earned on campus and may be transferred to any other accredited institution. Students in the programs are not limited to online courses but can also take courses on campus or at UHD’s off-campus locations at their convenience. UHD has established the Office of Online Degree Programs to provide support to students completing degrees online. This office will provide assistance with services such as admissions, academic advising, registration, and financial aid.
