Degree Completion


Welcome to University College located in The University of Houston Downtown. The College houses two baccalaureate degrees: the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies (BS-IS) and the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree with a major in Applied Administration (BAAS-AA). Among the academic enrichment programs are Supplemental Instruction, Honors Program, Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, and the Gator Success Center. Moreover, University College maintains several initiatives that assist undergraduate students in making the most of their university experience as they transition into higher education and beyond.


Freshman or returning student? Transferring to UHD?
University College is the choice for you!

Reason No. 5

We designed our degree programs to be convenient for you. Both the BAAS in Applied Administration and the BS in Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS) can be completed entirely through online courses. The BSIS students especially like being able to select from online, face-to-face, and hybrid courses (i.e., online with some classroom attendance required) to create the schedule that works best for them.

Reason No. 4

We strive to make your experience at UHD a good one. We provide activities and programs with proven track records for student engagement and success, such as the Greater Texas Foundation Scholars; Freshman Convocation/Common Reading Program; and the newly Gator Success Center.

Reason No. 3

We're there to help when you need it. We have our Academic Support Center located in N925. We also provide peer tutoring through Supplemental Instruction (SI) for students enrolled in historically difficult courses. These focused study sessions enable students to learn from peers who have been successful in the course, review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and prepare for exams.

Reason No. 2

We graduate students with distinction. Our University Honors Program recognizes and supports intellectually gifted and academically talented students with personalized advising and innovative teaching and mentoring programs.

And the No. 1 reason to choose UHD's University College is…

It is the best place to explore your options and expand your opportunities!​
