Is the purpose of the recommendation letter only to ensure that I am able to complete my degree in time while taking courses at UTSPH, or is it also to let the committee know more about me as a person?

Do the courses taken at UTSPH count towards graduation at Rice?

Do the Rice and UTSPH academic calendars align? If not, what do I do?
Sometimes. Since both are independent institutions there may be instances when the different academic calendars are not in synch. In reality, this usually means they may be “off” by a week either on the front or back end of the semester. When this occurs it is up to the individual student to make arrangements to begin classes at both institutions according to each academic calendar. Further, Rice does not offer or provide living accommodations to affected students during these instances and it is up to students to make alternative arrangements until both institutions are in full session.
