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 you have international transcripts, please view the International applicants section.
3. Résumé (optional)
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.
An applicant is considered international if they are not a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident. Additional transcript, proof of English language proficiency and visa requirements may need to be met. See the links below for more information about the additional documents that may be required for international applicants.
Transcript Information - Please submit all official transcript(s), mark sheet(s) and degree certificates for each year of attendance from ALL universities and/or college(s) attended. Official academic credentials must be submitted in the original language(s) of issue and with an official English translation.
English Language Proficiency Requirements - All applicants, regardless of citizenship status, must demonstrate proficiency in English to obtain admission to the university. Please visit the UH Undergraduate Admissions’ English Language Proficiency Requirements webpage for more information about exemptions and minimum exam required scores.
F-1 Visa Information – These documents are not required until AFTER you are offered admission.
NOTE: International students must have a four-year degree (or its equivalent) from an accredited university to apply for a post-baccalaureate program at UH main campus. Not all three-year foreign degrees are considered equivalent. Students with a three–year degree will likely need to complete the equivalent of a four-year degree before being eligible for admission.
