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 Program (Student Orientation and Registration, S.O.A.R.) or our Transfer Student Orientation (TSO). 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 Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR)
We are excited to offer a brief Family & Guest Orientation program on the first day of the Student Orientation and Registration (S.O.A.R.) program. The majority of the S.O.A.R. program is developed for your student to engage with fellow UHCL students in course advising and registration, small group activities and presentations. If you are interested in joining your student during S.O.A.R., you will follow a separate program track. The cost for this program is $35 for each family or guest and can be paid prior to the session or at check-in of the session.
Family and Guest Orientation at Transfer Student Orientation (TSO)
Although we do not offer a separate Family & Guest Orientation Program during our Transfer Student Orientation (T.S.O.), family and guests are welcome to join their transfer student during T.S.O.. The cost for this program is $35 for each family or guest and can be paid prior to the session or at check-in of the session.
