In an effort to promote a seamless transition to UHCL, all incoming junior and senior students are obligated to follow our Transfer Advising Program (TAP).
- Students will have an advising hold preventing class registration after admission to UHCL.
- Students with 60 or more credit hours are required to schedule an appointment and meet with an adviser in the Transfer Advising Office.
- Upon completion of the visit, the advising hold is removed and students are able to register for classes for their first semester at UHCL.
- After the session through TAP, students will be transitioned to the appropriate academic college for their major.
