Apply To UHCL
When University of Houston-Clear Lake opened in 1974, we built our school with transfer students in mind. We didn't even accept freshmen or sophomores into our programs until 2014. That means we have plenty of expertise working with community colleges and other four-year institutions to make your transfer process easy.

After the priority deadline, please contact the Office of Admissions. Students who apply after the priority deadline must submit a paper application and submit all required documentation through the Office of Admission. Applications may be processed through late registration. A $50.00 Late Registration Fee or $50.00 Late Payment may apply.
Review the UHCL Academic Calendar for registration and payment dates and deadlines.
Paying For College
You've already been to college, so you know the academic side is challenging enough without having to worry about finances. At $1000 per semester, our Automatic Transfer Scholarship might make things little easier! You must:
- Be a new degree-seeking undergraduate transferring from a college or university;
- Transfer 30 or more credits to UHCL; and
- Possess a transfer GPA of 2.75 or above.
If you want to know more, our financial aid office is ready to have a conversation with you about paying for college.
