Welcome to University of Houston-Clear Lake! We want you to find success on our campus, and that starts when you get connected to the right adviser for your needs - from freshmen and undergraduate transfer students to graduate students and everyone in between.
Find the Right Adviser for You
If you apply to UHCL as a freshman, sophomore, or first-time-in-college student and you have less than 60 hours of college-level credit, the University Advising Center will assist you with choosing classes, setting educational goals, navigating college life and more.
If you come to UHCL having earned more than 60 hours of college-level credit, the Office of Academic Transfer Advising will provide a range of services that will lead you to success at UHCL. This includes helping you understand how the credits you earned at previous colleges and universities will transfer and be applied to your degree program here, assisting with the transition process, and selecting classes for your first semester.
Once you have selected a major and have 60 hours or more of college-level credit – or you are a graduate student – academic advisers within the individual College that houses your degree program will provide the necessary assistance for selecting classes, understanding degree requirements and working towards your eventual graduation.
The Office of International Admissions and Programs at UHCL provides services and programs to assist you as an international student with becoming a UHCL student. You will receive special attention with any immigration concerns you might have, while also being directed to the appropriate academic adviser and receiving help with adjusting to life in the United States.
We want all of our students to receive the advising they need and deserve – especially if you enrolled in one of our programs, we’ll help you choose your classes, plot out a plan of study for your intended major and connect you with other crucial academic resources.
If you attend one of UHCL’s satellite campuses, our great advisers ensure you have the same access to help with your academic concerns. You can be assisted with picking your courses, developing a plan for how you will achieve your degree, working with your professors and more.
