Your academic experience and the quality of your education are directly related to the outstanding UHCL faculty and instructors doing the teaching.
More than anything, including our see-it-to-believe-it campus and our many educational options, what makes UHCL really shine are the people with whom you’ll study every day. They’re more than experts in their fields. They want to share their knowledge and help you understand the intricacies of the topics you’re studying.
No matter which college you enroll in – Business, Education, Human Sciences and Humanities or Science and Engineering – you’ll gain practical experience solving real-world problems. Our students gain co-op experience at leading energy companies, teach in one of the state’s best school districts, conduct undergraduate research in our specialized science labs and go far, far off campus in our study-abroad programs.
Study Hard. Breathe Deep. We’re Here.
Your courses will be rigorous. They’ll make you challenge your assumptions, push your limits and maybe work harder than you ever have before.
But you won't be on your own! In addition to your professors – who make your success a priority – we make it easy for you to get the help you need to pull ahead. Our Student Success Center, Math Center and Writing Center are ready to provide personalized instruction in case you hit a roadblock in your studies.
Education on Your Schedule
UHCL offers a wide range of traditional and nontraditional courses. But we know that many of you have jobs and families, making full-time classes difficult, and we’re ready to accommodate you. Nearly 60 percent of our undergraduate students are here part-time. Our online education and extended and professional education offerings can accommodate your busy schedule, too.
Looking for an opportunity to expand your education? Invest your time in one of the centers and institutes at UHCL. You will receive valuable experience working alongside faculty members and experts in the community as you conduct valuable research, experiments and studies into the pressing issues of our day.
The culmination of your academic career, commencement serves as the opportunity for the entire UHCL campus to celebrate you and your fellow graduates. But before the big day arrives, it's crucial that you follow the necessary steps to ensure you walk across that stage in style.
