Requirements are super laxMar 24 2022Unknown
Requirements are super lax. The smart student will take all pre-reqs at Community College to minimize their time at UH, along with their college costs. The school prioritizes people from out of state and out of the country because the fees are well over 10X what they get from in-state students.

If you are transferring from college in Texas then you can check for yourself. The website is easy to use. If shows that you course should transfer and admissions staff tell you that it does not, and that the website is not the correct website; tell them they are wrong. If it is on the website, then you are not supposed to even fill out a petition form.
If they still reject it, remind them that refusal to acknowledge tccns coursework can result in loss of funding from the state of Texas. Because as far as the state of Texas is concerned they already paid for it once. You can use google to find the actual regulations for Texas if you need to. I had to show them the actual regulation before they acknowledged at four classes.
