The University of Houston-Downtown invites prospective students, transfer students and their families to its fall open house from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 31, where they will learn more about UHD’s award-winning program, academic majors, and student activities and organizations.
“UHD offers students tremendous opportunities to work with professors directly on individual research projects, something not offered at many other four-year institutions,” said UHD President William V. Flores. “We want families to come out and learn more about us and programs that help first-generation college students.”
Registration begins at 9 a.m. in the Shea Street Building, 320 N. Main St., and students that bring high school transcripts can apply for on-the-spot admissions for fall semester 2010. UHD’s newest degree programs include bachelor’s degrees in social work and insurance and risk management. The University’s Scholars Academy for students in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics has won national acclaim, and its graduates have gone on to careers in space, medicine and business.
UHD’s “Destination Downtown” program includes sessions on financial aid, scholarships, majors, student activities and campus tours. UHD’s application deadline for freshmen for fall 2009 is June 1, with a deadline to turn in all documents by July 15. Transfer students have until Aug. 1 to apply. Students that apply early get the best selection of courses for the fall semester.
