Parents and Family

Welcome to the Hawk Family

Maximize your student's social and academic experience at University of Houston-Clear Lake by participating in the informational and fun events and programs that emphasize both academic and social opportunities. We are pleased to prepare your student for a successful year and to discover what it really means to soar with the Hawks at UHCL.
To assist your student's transition to campus life, they will be asked to register for First Year Student Orientation and Registration (known as Lift-Off: New Student Orientation), or Transfer Student Orientation (known as TSO). Incoming Lift-Off students will have the opportunity to meet with professors in their interest areas as well as advisers to help plan a program of study specific to their needs, skills and interests. Family and guests are welcome to attend these events with their student.

And, because we definitely believe that becoming a Hawk is a family affair, we invite family and/or other guests to participate in the fun-filled, information-packed Family Weekend, featuring sessions created to answer your questions about UHCL, our campus, and all we have to offer. Take this time to meet faculty members and university administrators who will guide you through topics you need to know about, from academics to campus life.
