There is only one UH campus Downtown, and that is UH-Downtown. The main campus isn't Downtown, but in Third Ward (basically).

At UH Downtown (http://www.uhd.edu/admissions/freshman.htm - broken link), all that you need to is a pulse and to have graduated from high school or possess a GED.

UH Main (http://www.uh.edu/admissions/undergraduate/apply-freshman/admissions-criteria/#major - broken link) has slightly stricter requirements and some major have their on minimum standards.

UH-Downtown and UH are two different schools now, with different boards, etc. UH-Downtown is not a satellite campus.

Also, UH-Downtown is very easy to get to from Metro/ Metro Park n Ride/ Light Rail.

Both schools have some good programs- UH-Downtown has a good teacher training program- Interdisciplinary Studies and UH has a great pharmacy school and a good optometrist school.

You're right...I was thinking Third Ward is downtown but it isn't, it is just very close to it.

UH Main has some well-ranked programs. Their Entrepreneurship program at the Bauer College of Business was ranked #1 in the country by Entrepreneur magazine and Princeton Review.

Back in the day (mid 90s), admissions "ease" for the (most popular) public schools used to be

UT & A&M hardest
UH & TTU easier
SFA, SHSU, SWT easiest

Is it still like that nowadays?

All they require is for you to be breathing and have a pulse.

It also depends on the department you are studying in.

I am a music major there and it is very hard to get in. The same is true with the business school. They have seperate criteria.

How safe is the downtown area in Houston?

I'm not so much worried about the surrounding area of UH, i feel that some things can be avoided by simply having common sense.
