Automatic Transfer Scholarship

You Can Earn an Automatic Transfer Scholarship

At University of Houston-Clear Lake, we love connecting our transfer students with the resources they need to fit in smoothly and effectively. And, we’ve made the process even simpler, especially financially, with our Automatic Transfer Scholarship.

Jumpstart Your Education at UHCL

The scholarship award amount is $750 per semester and the application process is quite easy. We use the application you submitted when you applied for admission to UHCL as a transfer student to check if you meet the following criteria:

  • Be a new degree-seeking undergraduate transferring from a college or university
  • Transfer 30 or more credits to UHCL
  • Hold a transfer GPA of 2.75 or above

Renewing Your Scholarship

If you meet the renewal criteria, you can receive the scholarship for three additional long semesters (fall or spring only). Your scholarship will be automatically renewed for the second year if you have done the following:

  • Received the scholarship in your first year
  • Maintained consecutive enrollment in the first two long semesters at UHCL
  • Earned a minimum of 18 semester hours of academic credit at UHCL before the start of the 3rd long semester
  • Maintained a cumulative UHCL GPA no lower 2.75
  • Enrolled in nine (9) or more hours at UHCL in the third consecutive long semester

Receiving Your Scholarship

Your Automatic Transfer Scholarship will be credited to your UHCL student account approximately seven days prior to the first class day of the fall and/or spring semester. If you are enrolled for less than nine credit hours on the 12th class day of that semester, you may have your scholarship reversed, and the credit will become a debit on your account
