Your Degree on Your Time
We realize that the everyday pressures of work and family – not to mention finances – make it unrealistic for most people to drop everything and head back to college. We get it. That’s why we offer classes online, in the evening and at off-campus locations. If you want to earn your graduate degree, we want to make sure you have a convenient way to get it.
If you could invent your own campus, far from the noise and pressure of everyday life, you’d come up with something a lot like UHCL. We’re located in a 524-acre nature and wildlife preserve, yet easily accessible to the NASA Johnson Space Center and 20 minutes from Galveston. Tours are offered several times weekly. Reserve your spot today, or join us at an open house or another admission event.
