Student Pathways

The University of Houston System Student Pathways Program is designed to make all UH System institutions accessible to all undergraduate UH System students.  This initiative supports the University of Houston System’s goal of providing greater access to UHS students and will enable students to progress more quickly toward the completion of their degrees at their home institutions by taking advantage of course opportunities that may be more available, convenient, or affordable at one of the other UH System institutions.

Through the UHS Student Pathways program, undergraduate students in any of the four UH System universities, with the approval of their academic departments, are able to take up to six hours of courses toward their degree, at any of the universities.  The Student Pathways courses may be taken during a single semester or in two different semesters. Currently, the program allows for a maximum of 6 hours during the student's academic career and the courses must apply to the student's degree at the home institution. There is no application fee, and all university services at both the home and the host institution are available to students during the semesters in which they are enrolled in the program.  At the conclusion of the semester, the student’s grades and credit are sent back to the student’s “home” university automatically.  Financial aid is also available through consortium agreements among the four universities. Participation in the Pathways Project does not automatically waive academic requirements.
