New International Student Orientation


Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Houston-Clear Lake and welcome to our family. Your presence here enriches the UH-Clear Lake campus environment and adds great diversity to our institution. New International Student Orientation is your first chance to experience all that UHCL has to offer you! Attendance is mandatory for all undergraduate international students and for all F-1 and J-1 international graduate students as you will benefit from valuable information that helps ease your transition to UHCL and life in the United States.

New International Student Orientation Fall 2015:

You can register for the orientation by signing into your E-Services account.  New International Student Orientation is a Two Day Program and is Mandatory for you to attend both days.

Day 2 - Thursday, August 20, 11:00 AM - 5:30 PM

You will have a hold placed on your account, and will not be able to enroll in classes the following semester if you do not attend both days in their entirety.

Airport Pickup

As part of New International Student Orientation (NISO), the Office of International Admissions and Programs (OIAP), provides a complimentary one time pick up from George Bush Intercontinental Airport or Hobby Airport for arriving new international students.  Currently, the service is only offered for first time arriving new UHCL students and is not available for current UHCL students or individuals who are not UHCL students.

1) The Fall 2015 service will begin on July 20, 2015 ending on August 18, 2015.

2) For the safety of our drivers, airport pickup’s will be offered for flights arriving between 8:00 AM and 8:00PM.

3) The Drop-off Address is to be in the Clear Lake area only.

4) We cannot confirm your Airport Pickup unless you register for New International Student Orientation on August 19 & 20, 2015.

If we cannot arrange a pick-up service, you may consider reserving a seat with Super Shuttle. You can do this online through their website at or by phone (800) 258-3826. The cost should be around $55 for a one way trip from the airport. You can also use a taxi cab; however, please realize that this may cost up to $100.  You can also check the Airport websites for more information about other local shuttle ground transportation.
