As in admit rate?

If so I’d email UHouston as I don’t believe they publish admit rate by major.

At 65% admissions rate for the Class of 2024, I don't think the University of Houston is very competitive across the different majors.

If you want to study CS there, I recommend that you have more STEM core requirements like 4 years each of Science and Math. That can only help you.

Also, the higher your GPA is and your class ranking like the top 25%, the better. I think a lot of Texans apply to UofH as a safety school so some of their GPA/Ranking stats seem high compared to their SAT/ACT scores which are 1150-1300 and 22 to 27 for their middle 50% percentile. After reading a lot of blogs, it appears that it's easier to get in than it is to graduate on time with great grades. There are some very rigorous classes that are core requirements depending on your major.

Here is the link to the latest U of H stats from the 2020 common data set, you need to view them in MS Excel.

Good luck with your college admissions process.

So I agree with Nurse a lot but almost always CS is more competitive than the school as a whole if the school admits you into a major and or school. If they admit you to the university not a college then disregard what I just said.
