Visit the Admissions Web site � www.uhd.edu/admissions/ for details, phone and address information and timelines. A non-refundable application fee of $35 is due at the time of applying; late application is $75. Joint Admissions The Joint Admissions partnership between UHD Northwest and Lone Star College makes it easy to earn a two-year, then a four-year degree near home and work. Students may be admitted to both institutions simultaneously, maximizing transfer credits and giving students access to UHD advising and programs � often before their degree program even begins. Joint Admissions students follow the same admissions procedures as freshmen and transfer students, but the $35 application fee is waived.

They range in age from 17 to over 50 and mirror the rich ethnic and cultural diversity that define Houston. Many students complete their degrees while working full time and caring for families, and many are the first in their families to earn college degrees. Veterans Services UHD's Veterans Services office helps hundreds of veterans, reservists, guardsmen and dependents of disabled or deceased military veterans. Staff members help veterans complete, certify and file proper paperwork to obtain education benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs. UHD Degrees Lead to Many Careers College of Business College of Humanities & Social Sciences College of Public Service College of Sciences & Technology "I always had a passion for children and teaching and knew that the classes I took with UHD were going to be a wealth of resources for me. I didn't realize how many times and how often I would fall back on something I learned from a professor or classmate � I do that daily. My professors and classmates became like an extended family. I faced a lot of challenges along the way, but I'm teaching and I love it." -- Kathryn Mills Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies � Teaching College of Public Service 20515 State Highway 249 Houston, TX 77070 Phone: 713-237-5400; Web site: http://www.UHD.edu/northwest
