Official Transcripts

All transcripts sent to UHD must be official; an official transcript includes the school's official seal, the signature of the school official, your class rank and size, and your high school coursework. Copies and faxes do not satisfy this requirement. If your high school does not rank class members, include a statement from your school stating its policy, a copy of your school's profile and grade distribution. All high school GPAs are converted to a 4.0 scale.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admissions at 713-221-8522, or contact an Admissions Counselor.
