International Admissions

Welcome to the UHD International Admissions website. We are glad you are considering UHD as your university for higher studies. UHD is located in downtown Houston. The fourth largest city in the U.S. with a metropolitan area population of four million, Houston is truly an international city. Its residents, representing a variety of cultures, contribute to Houston's strong international representation in arts, entertainment and commerce.

According to UHD, you are considered an international student if:

  • You hold a non-immigrant visa, you are classified as an international student.
  • You have applied for immigrant status, but have not adjusted your status with the Immigration and Naturalization Service
If you meet the above criteria, you must apply for international admission.


We are here to assist you! If you have questions, contact the Office of International Admissions team.
