UHD Waiving Fees for Summer Sessions

University of Houston-Downtown students completed Spring 2020 despite many challenging circumstances.

As Gators plan the next steps in their academic journeys, they will receive support through scholarships and other financial assistance initiatives.

UHD will offer further cost savings by waiving the following fees during upcoming Summer 2020 (including May mini-mester) sessions:

● Student Service Fee

● University Center Fee

● Wellness & Success Center Fee

● Library Fee

● International Education Fee

Waiving these fees can save students up to 15 percent off the regular cost of tuition and fees this summer, depending on how many classes they take.

The fee waiver complements the University’s Summer Scholarships that will cover up to two classes during Summer 2020. Students also are encouraged to apply for assistance through the UHD Emergency Funds, which provides financial assistance for tuition and unexpected cost-of-living expenses incurred during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

All questions related to scholarships, the UHD Emergency Funds and Summer 2020 fee waivers can be sent to coronavirus@uhd.edu.
