Advising Procedures

  Undergraduates
 

If you are an undergraduate with under 54 credit hours, you should connect with your academic adviser in the Freshman and Sophomore Advising Center. When you have completed 54 or more credit hours, you will be assigned an adviser in the college of your chosen major. To schedule an appointment, download the Navigate mobile app.

  Transfer Students
 

If you are an incoming undergraduate transfer student entering your first semester at UHCL with 54 or more hours, you should contact Transfer Advising or Off-campus Advising if you intend to take classes at the Pearland campus or Texas Medical Center.

If you are entering UHCL with under 54 credit hours, you should connect with an academic adviser in the Freshman and Sophomore Advising Center.

As a new transfer student, you will be required to attend an advising session prior to registering for classes. We do this to ensure you have a smooth transition from your previous institution to UHCL. Your adviser will work collaboratively with you to develop a realistic course load and recommend appropriate classes for your chosen major in your initial semester.

The International Advisers within the Office of International Admissions and Programs can assist you with questions about full-time enrollment requirements, restrictions on working in the U.S., traveling around the U.S. and other rules and responsibilities connected to your immigration status.
