UHCL spotlights on-the-spot admission, new building at Open House
News Release
Wednesday, October 17, 2018

PEARLAND, Texas — UHCL Pearland is offering the community a firsthand look at its expanding campus and educational opportunities at Open House, Nov. 3 From 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Future students, their families and guests are invited for campus tours, and information about admissions, financial aid and degree programs.

“Our goal is to make sure students have a smooth, convenient transition to UHCL Pearland,” said Tiffany King, interim associate director for admissions campus visits. “This event is great opportunity for students to meet faculty who will be teaching their courses and to familiarize themselves with their future campus.”

Students who attend the Open House can apply for admission to UHCL without an application fee at the event with help from enrollment management counselors. Additionally, transfer students and graduate students applying to select programs can bring official sealed college transcripts and required test scores to be reviewed on the spot by admissions counselors. This way, students do not have to wait for an admission decision and can begin their next steps toward enrolling at UHCL immediately.

Campus tours will include information about the Health Sciences and Classroom Building, set to open in spring 2019. It will house labs for chemistry, biology and health care training along with classrooms, study spaces and large lecture hall.

The event presents a unique opportunity for Alvin Community College students to learn about course offerings at UHCL Pearland. In July, UHCL and ACC built on their partnership to expand opportunities for students to take freshman- and sophomore-level courses at UHCL Pearland, making it easier for ACC students to transition to a four-year degree program at UHCL.

“ACC students have the opportunity to take classes at Pearland and finish their degrees here, so we definitely encourage those students to come and learn more,” King said.

UHCL Pearland offers undergraduate degrees in accounting, management, behavioral sciences, criminology, psychology, information technology (BAS), nursing (RN-to-BSN), and interdisciplinary studies (with several certifications and certificate programs in ESL and special education).

Graduate students can pursue a master’s degree in behavioral sciences, criminology, psychology, educational management (with principal and special education certifications), counseling (with certifications in college counseling and licensed professional counseling), as well as a doctorate in educational leadership. Engineering management will be offered starting in spring 2019.
