Receive the Crucial Advice You Need

Our mission is to serve your interests and education so you can make a seamless transition to life in America and to our campus. We work closely with all the students, dependents and scholars sponsored by UHCL. This includes assistance with the processing of immigration documents, government reporting, status letters, change of status, work authorization and more. As part of the advising process, we also conduct immigration workshops and send monthly emails throughout the academic year to assist you in maintaining your immigration status.

If you have any questions about your experience as an international student at UHCL, contact International Student Services directly at intladvising@uhcl.edu. We’re able to assist you with concerns like 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.

Schedule Your Advising Appointment Today

International Student Services looks forward to assisting you. If you would like to meet with your adviser, schedule an appointment by calling 281-283-2740 or email intladvising@uhcl.edu.

We also have Express Advising available Tuesday and Wednesday, 2-5 p.m., with no appointment necessary. Express Advising is meant for quick immigration questions, so if you have complex immigration questions or processes, it will require an appointment.
