Family and Guests

Welcome to the Hawk Family

Congratulations to the parents, friends and family members of our incoming UHCL Hawks! You can play an active and supportive role as they transition to their academic and social life at University of Houston-Clear Lake. Our office offers various programs and resources to help better inform and prepare you to support your student.

To assist your student's transition to campus life, they will be asked to register for First Year Student Orientation and Registration (Lift-Off: New Student Orientation), Transfer Student Orientation (TSO), or New International Student Orientation (NISO). Please encourage your student to check their student email account and E-Services for more information regarding their required orientation program.

Family and Guest Orientation at Lift-Off: New Student Orientation

We are excited to offer a brief Family and Guest Orientation Program on the first day of the Lift-Off: New Student Orientation. The majority of the Lift-Off program is developed for your student to engage with fellow UHCL students in small group activities and presentations. If you are interested in joining your student during Lift Off: NSO, you will follow a separate program track. The cost for this program is $35 for each parent or family member. Pre-registration and payment are preferred; however, you can also pay during check-in at the orientation session.
