Submission Rules

Class notes, in print and online, are a way to share what’s going on in your life with your alma mater and classmates. Class Notes rely upon an environment of trust and mutual respect for the rights, differences, and dignity of others; of free expression and inquiry; and with a commitment to truth, excellence, and personal accountability. The views and opinions expressed by alumni are theirs alone, and are not endorsed by and should not be ascribed to UH or UHAA.

By submitting a class note, you agree to the following:

  • • All Class Notes are visible to the general public. Do not submit anything you wish to keep private.
  • • The University of Houston reserve the right to edit all submissions for style and content. The following content will be edited or deleted: Personal attacks or insults, hate speech, or harassment.
  • • Posts with the intention of eliciting negative responses, or posts with the clear intention of annoying or offending other users.
  • • Advertising or any form of commercial solicitation.
  • • Material that slanders, abuses or threatens others.
  • • Material that contains vulgar, obscene or indecent language or images. This includes the use of substitute symbols (for example, “a$$” will be deleted).
  • • Communications that violate or incite others to violate the law or communications that discuss illegal activities with the intent to commit them.
  • • Unauthorized copyrighted material.
  • • Communications that could be confused with official communications of the University or Alumni Association.
  • • Posts which are deemed inappropriate by UH Alumni staff.

The spirit of these restrictions is to create a positive reading experience for all visitors.

We have implemented automated measures to detect submissions that may violate these terms. Any submission flagged by these measures is held for review before it can become publicly visible. We try to review submissions promptly during normal business hours, but cannot guarantee a turnaround time.

If you see any content you believe to be in violation of these policies, please contact us at Email:
We ask for your email address and phone number so that we can contact you if we have any questions. We do not share this information with parties outside the UH community.

All notes are considered for publication in AlumLine or other university publications. However, we do not guarantee inclusion, neither in a particular issue nor at any time. Submissions that are included may be edited to fit the allotted space.

Our editors may select a handful of notes of special interest for highlighting, either online or in print. Selections are at the sole discretion of our editors.

We may revise these policies at any time, and reserve the right to modify or discontinue services.
