The amounts shown in this section are provided to better assist students in assessing the cost of enrolling at the University of Houston-Downtown. While this information is intended to be comprehensive, tuition and fees are subject to change without notice by action of the Texas Legislature and/or the Board of Regents of the University of Houston System. Students are responsible for any additional amounts due to UHD, including changes to any fees and waivers, resulting from audits and corrections, such as registration assessment errors, or schedule changes resulting in additional charges.
