Freshman Admissions

Before you start exploring subjects at University of Houston-Clear Lake because you love them, before you get to know the professors who will change your life, before the all-nighters, before the hours you’ll divide between our library and our art gallery and our nature preserve and our 100 student groups and before the weekends you’ll spend exploring Houston and all its diverse communities have to offer…Before all that, you have to apply.
