Receive the Crucial Advice You Need

Our mission is to serve your interests and education so you can make a seamless transition to life in America and to our campus. We work closely with all the students, dependents and scholars sponsored by UHCL. This includes assistance with the processing of immigration documents, government reporting, status letters, change of status, work authorization and more. As part of the advising process, we also conduct immigration workshops and send monthly emails throughout the academic year to assist you in maintaining your immigration status.

If you have any questions about your experience as an international student at UHCL, contact International Advising directly at intladvising@uhcl.edu. We’re able to assist you with concerns like full-time enrollment requirements, restrictions on working in the U.S., traveling around the U.S. and other rules and responsibilities connected to your immigration status.
