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

Information for School Counselors

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.

Interested in learning about University of Houston-Clear Lake as a destination for your students? We’re glad to be of service. Whether you work as a high school guidance counselor or college counselor at a two-year community college, we want to help you provide your students the necessary information they need to make the right decision for their educations and lives.

The best place to start would be with our Counselor’s Brochure. It contains crucial details about admission requirements, degree programs, scholarship opportunities and more. From there, choose the section that’s right for you and your students so you secure the right material for your students.
