President's Message - Supporting DACA Students
Dear UHD Community,
Many of you are likely following recent news regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Presently, DACA is being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court and a ruling is expected sometime in spring 2020. UHD, like many institutions of higher education across the United States, is monitoring news regarding the future of DACA.

The University of Houston-Downtown (UHD)—the second largest university in Houston—has served the educational needs of the nation’s fourth-largest city since 1974.
As one of four distinct public universities in the University of Houston System, UHD is a comprehensive four-year university led by Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz. Annually, UHD educates more than 14,000 students; boasts over 50,000 alumni and offers 44 bachelor’s and eight master’s degree programs within five colleges (Marilyn Davies College of Business; Humanities & Social Sciences; Public Service, Sciences & Technology; and University College).
UHD has the most affordable tuition among four-year universities in Houston and one of the lowest in Texas.
