How to Apply as a Former UH Student
"Former" students are considered students who have taken undergraduate courses at UH. This includes former summer visiting and post-baccalaureate students.
Students who previously completed undergraduate coursework at UH Main Campus may apply by General Petition if they have not had an interruption of four consecutive semesters or 13 consecutive months between their last completed coursework at UH and the application semester. See the General Petitions Guidelines section for more information.
For questions regarding the former student admission process, please contact the CAP Admissions Coordinator at [email protected].

Official transcripts from each higher-educational institution attended must be submitted. Ask your college or university registrar to send your transcript data electronically through an EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) system, e.g. Speede. If this electronic option is not available to you, your transcripts can be mailed.
If UH already has all of your most up to date transcripts on file, you most likely do not need to resubmit your transcripts.

Applicants can e-mail a copy of their most recent résumé highlighting professional and academic experiences, as well as recognizable accomplishments. This step is optional unless the CAP Admissions Coordinator contacts you for additional information needed to make an admissions decision.
