Winter Mini Session

Get closer to earning your degree through UHCL's four-week Winter Mini Session. During the winter break, earn credit hours* to get ahead and graduate sooner. You can choose from a variety of courses, including online options.

*The maximum number of hours an undergraduate may take in any given semester is 19. As a result any student taking three in a winter session would require an override to take more than 16 in the Spring term.
