Information Gathering and Exploration

student website to learn all about what UH Bauer College has to offer! (Hint:
You're already here!)
- Transfer Advising Program (TAP): UH has an innovative program through which UH academic advisors spend time advising students at various community colleges in the Houston metro area. Visit the TAP webpage to find out when and where you can see our business transfer advisor , as well as how to make an appointment.
- Before You Apply - Daytime Program Reminder and Full-time Courseload Recommendation: We would like to remind all of our prospective non-traditional and transfer students that the BBA Degree Program at UH-Main campus is a Daytime program - we offer a very limited number of early evening and online courses. Students who wish to complete their degree primarily at night, on weekends, or at home should consider other schools to pursue their degree at, including other UH-System campuses. In addition, due to state law requirements regarding timely degree plan selection and our commitment to student success inside and outside of the classroom, we strongly recommend that business students maintain full-time status (12 credit hours or more per fall and spring semesters).
