The University Studies Division (USD) is designed to assist undergraduate students with core curriculum and Texas Academic Skills program (TASP) information at first enrollment. Students who have a declared major also have available to them the services of their major department or college advisors.
The USD is the primary advising resource for:
Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP)
The University Studies Division has responsibility for TASP screening and TASP advising, TASP compliance monitoring, and TASP remediation assignment. Because of potential legislative action, the developmental education program may be modified for Spring 2000. For current information, see the catalog web page at www.uh.edu/academics/catalog.
Declaring a Major
Students who choose not to declare a major at the point of admission to the University of Houston will be offered assistance through the USD that will help them later make an informed decision about a major field of study. All USD students must declare a major by the beginning of their junior year (60 credit hours), if they have not already done so.
The Academic Advising Center
The University Studies Division's chief operating arm, the Academic Advising Center, provides University Studies advising and is responsible for the university-wide collection and coordination of advising information and advising policies. The University Studies Division's Academic Advising Center is located in room 320 of the Student Service Center and is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary. As a convenience to evening students, the center is also open Monday and Tuesday evenings to 6:00 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters when classes are in session.
