Global Citizens Credential

Watch the video to learn more about the program and how to earn points

The Global Citizens Credential (GCC) is an undergraduate program offered at the University of Houston that recognizes students for activities that build global knowledge and skills and awards its graduates with a transcript credential, certificate, and honor cord. The GCC is a good resume-builder and helps students stand-out when applying to jobs, graduate school, and competitive international scholarships. The program also encourages students to be more active global citizens and make a greater impact in their community.


The GCC is open to any UH undergraduate student in good academic standing with a GPA of 2.00 or above
