Find Your Admissions Counselor​

​​Your freshman admissions counselor will be your point of contact for any questions you may have regarding the application and admissions process at the University of Houston-Downtown.
Freshman applicants are those who will complete high school by the end of the current academic year and hold one of the following citizenship or residency statuses:

  • U.S. citizenship
  • Permanent Residency
  • DACA
  • Undocumented who do not hold DACA status but have resided in the U.S. for an extended period of time
  • Refugee/Asylee
  • ​Students enrolled in concurrent high school and college courses are considered first-year candidates.
Students who have elected to take time off from schooling between graduating from high school and enrolling in college are considered freshman applicants. Completion of a high school diploma (or an equivalent) prior to enrollment is required for all new incoming students.​
