Graduation Application Form

Are you planning to graduate this semester?  If so, you should have submitted an Application for Degree form to the Registrar’s Office when you registered for fall classes.  If you did not, please do so right away, and submit a copy to the SBMI Office of Academic Affairs.  We are now located in Suite 650 of University Center Tower.  You may also email the form or fax it to 713-500-3060.  The form is located at PicAcad.pdf.
Once your form is processed, a $75 graduation fee will be posted to your Student Center in myUTH, and you may pay online, as you did for fall classes. If you have any questions about preparing for graduation this semester, please contact Academic Affairs at or by phone at 713.500.3591.

At the Student Inter Council Salutation on September 11th, UTHealth's student government (SIC) began the new school year by celebrating the students. Students enjoyed food and met the deans, the UTHealth Interim President, student government leaders and the UT System student regent, Ashley Purgason.

Keep Your Copyright! New Class Offered at the HAM-TMC Library

Copyright imageDid you know that when you sign a contract to publish an article in a journal, you often sign away your right to give copies to your students and colleagues and even the right to post a copy in your university’s online repository? Also, you may not even be able to access your own published work unless your university's library can afford to subscribe to that journal. There are easy ways to negotiate with your publisher to maintain some of your copyright before signing on the dotted line. This class will teach you the methods to gain more access to your works.

Thursday, September 27th
Noon – 1 p.m.
Taught by:  Kate Krause, Digital Projects Librarian - Collections
Phone: 713.799.7126
