Transfer Students

Welcome New Transfer Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Houston-Clear Lake. The Orientation and New Student Programs (ONSP) Office is excited to welcome you to campus! You will be joining a vibrant and diverse community of students from across Texas and around the world. ONSP hosts various orientation and welcome programs to ease your transition and welcome you to UHCL.

Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) is mandatory for all new transfer students with 30 or more credit hours. Students who fail to attend the entire required program will have a hold placed on their accounts and will not be able to enroll in classes the following semester.

You must be an admitted incoming transfer student to register for TSO. Depending on which academic semester you are admitted for, we offer a specific TSO Session for you. We will contact your UHCL student email when orientation registration opens for your admitted semester.

During TSO, you will join other transfer students and will receive a snapshot of UHCL resources, an overview of services and an understanding of academic policies. You will also connect with your faculty members, fellow students and UHCL administrators. Specific presentations include:

  • College Finances 101
  • Meet Your College
  • Title IX & Mental Health
  • Campus Tour
  • Hawk Talk Breakout Sessions

You must be an admitted incoming transfer student to register for TSO. Depending on which academic semester you are admitted for, we offer a specific TSO Session for you. We will contact your UHCL student email when orientation registration opens for your admitted semester.

Remember, all new transfer students with 30 or more credit hours must sign up for and complete the TSO program to fulfil the university orientation requirement.
