Important COVID-19 Updates
Test-Optional Policy - UHCL has approved a temporary test-optional policy to waive the ACT/SAT requirements for summer 2021, fall 2021, and spring 2022 terms. This means freshmen are not required to submit an ACT/SAT score to receive an admission decision, but are encouraged to submit scores if they have them. Applicants will not be penalized for not submitting ACT/SAT scores.
Enrollment at University of Houston-Clear Lake - Gain an understanding of our course modes as we move through the pandemic for the current and upcoming semesters. View enrollment and course mode information.
