UHD prefers the use of EDI/SPEEDE transcript submission. However, if this option is not available, official paper transcripts are acceptable as long as they are unopened and bearing the seal of the sending institution.
If sending your official transcripts by a 3rd party service such as eSCRIP-SAFE, JST, National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment/DocuFide, ADDS/AVOW, etc. please use the UHDETranscripts@uhd.edu email address. PLEASE NOTE: PDF transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing company and directly to the UHDETranscripts@uhd.edu email address to be considered official.
If you are unsure as to whether or not your electronic transcripts will be considered official at UHD, please contact the Office of Admissions by phone at 713-221-8522 or via email at email@example.com before you request or send your electronic transcripts.
UHD maintains transfer guides for all area community and junior colleges that provide course equivalencies. If you have a general question about transfer credit, please contact an Admissions Counselor. Guides are found at the following links:
If you attended a college or university outside of the United States, your transcripts must be evaluated by a credential evaluation service recognized by UHD prior to applying for admissions to the university.
Once accepted and assigned a student ID, you may request a transcript evaluation. UHD accepts credits from regionally accredited institutions. Course appeals are handled by the College.
If you are currently attending a community or junior college and want to get a head start on your bachelor's degree, the Joint Admission Program (JA) is for you. Through JA you can be a student at a community college and at UHD at the same time. You can earn credits toward your associate degree and your UHD bachelor's degree at the same time.
If you intend to complete your degree completely online, then you may apply as an online student. Currently UHD offers degree completion programs. Students who are classified as online only students, must seek approval from their advisor to take hybrid or face to face classes. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admissions at 713-221-8522, firstname.lastname@example.org or contact an Admissions Counselor. You may also talk to the UHD Online Advisor at 713-237-5454 or contact John McConnell at mcconnellj@UHD.edu.
