Stay Healthy, Hawks: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Apply for Admission

Important COVID-19 Update

Test-Optional Policy - UHCL has approved a temporary test-optional policy to waive the ACT/SAT requirements for fall 2020, spring 2021, summer 2021 and fall 2021 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.

For applicants currently dealing with difficulties presented by COVID-19 (including school closures, cancelled tests, distance learning, lack of access to school documents or personnel, delayed results on AP/IB/national exams, or other circumstances), we encourage you to contact the Office of Admissions. For one-on-one assistance, schedule a virtual appointment.

For university and health alert updates related to Coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit the UHCL Health Alert webpage.

We're excited that you're considering UHCL as your educational home, so we want to help you apply for admissions. The process depends on your status as a student:

We also want to connect with you personally as you apply to attend UHCL. You can set up a campus tour, which will give you a closer look at our classrooms, facilities and the 524-acre wildlife and nature preserve that gives the school its personality.

Since we're sure you have questions about the admissions process, review the rest of our available resources as you prepare for life as a student at UHCL. You can also contact us directly to speak with a helpful admissions counselor.
