Seniors: Financial Aid Pitfalls to Avoid
Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors: Deciding Which Colleges to Apply For
- Are you making an informed decision? Do you have all the facts you need about this college and what it might be like to attend?
- Are you making a reasonable decision? Have you considered your chances of acceptance and your ability to afford the college?
- Are you making a heartfelt decision? Does each school fit your personality -- and challenge you in just the right ways?
Seniors: University of Houston Scholarship Deadline Change
Sometimes there just isn’t enough time to get everything done. And with the various natural disasters that have been happening around the country, now is one of those times. S
Students deserve to have the time they need to complete their University of Houston application and have the best shot at receiving scholarship offers. That’s why we’ve decided to push back our scholarship priority deadline from Nov. 15, 2017, to Jan. 3, 2018.
Here’s what that means:
- Students who complete their application (including an official transcript and test scores) by 5 p.m. (CST) on Jan. 3 will be automatically considered for the Academic Excellence Scholarship which can be found at : http://www.uh.edu/financial/undergraduate/types-aid/scholarships/#freshmen which is our primary merit scholarship program.
- Students interested in applying for the Tier One Scholarship also have until Jan. 3 to complete that application. The Tier One Invitational, which was originally scheduled for Jan. 13, 2018, will be rescheduled. Updated information, as it’s available, will be posted at: http://www.uh.edu/tieronescholars/benefits/
- We also have a number of endowed scholarships, which students can apply for through myUH. Applications for these scholarships will be open from mid-November to mid-February. These applications can be found at: http://www.uh.edu/financial/undergraduate/types-aid/scholarships/#uh%20endowed
Just to recap: the scholarship priority deadline is now Jan. 3, 2018. However, the Fall 2018 application deadline for admission hasn’t changed. It’s still June 15, 2018.

Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors: When Early Action Makes Sense
- There are no strings attached. Unlike "early decision," which requires you to attend the college if admitted, early action has no such commitment. You simply decide by the regular decision deadline if the college is the one you want to attend.
- You can apply "EA" to more than one college. Most colleges offering EA will allow you to apply early action to other schools. Only a few highly selective colleges have restrictions.
