Transfer Admissions

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.

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 $750 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.

Want to meet us in person? We’d love that. We regularly offer admissions events such as open houses and information sessions so you can ask questions and get a first-hand look at UHCL. You’re welcome here any time. Schedule a campus visit today!
