General Admission/Application Information

In order to be considered for admission a student must send appropriate documents and credentials to the Office of Admissions and Student Recruitment. For timely and accurate processing, students should ensure that all official documents have been submitted prior to registration. Students are encouraged to request electronic transmission of all transcripts; such transmission may shorten the processing time by two or three days.

For additional information, contact Office of Admissions and Student Recruitment:
Email: admissions@uhv.edu


The Apply Texas Application may be submitted by students who are U.S. citizens or Legal Permanent Residents (LPR) of the United States. To access the Apply Texas Application, see the UHV website and click on “Apply”.  A $25.00 non-refundable/non-transferable application fee will be required.

International applicants who currently hold a visa that permits enrollment, or have pending permanent residence status, may submit the Apply Texas Application for International Students. From the UHV homepage, choose the Apply link, then select International from the list on the left side of the page. This link will direct you to the International Student information page. Here you will find steps to the admission process listed, links to required admission forms, and related information in the left column under International Students.

When applicants submit the completed application, an email confirmation from Apply Texas will be sent to the applicant stating that the application was submitted successfully. UHV’s Office of Admissions and Student Recruitment will receive the application in 24 to 48 hours, and the applicant will receive a myUHV student ID by email. The applicant will then be able to log in and check their admission status through myUHV Self Service. Applicants may also be contacted by email to provide additional information needed for the admission process.

Applications for admission should be submitted as early as possible to ensure time for processing before registration. The completed application, with supporting documents, constitutes the basis upon which eligibility for admission is determined. All questions on the application must be answered fully. Admission is invalid if granted on the basis of incorrect information or omitted facts, which if known, would have caused the applicant to be ineligible.

A student must contact the Office of Admissions and Student Recruitment if he/she does not enroll for the semester/term indicated on the original application.

Distance Education Out-of-State Authority

UHV participates in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA), which regulates and provides protections for students enrolled in online courses and program while residing in participating states outside of Texas.

Students who wish to complete a full degree without relocating to Texas may contact their program advisor to determine whether all courses will be available online and whether there will be any short-term face-to-face requirements. Even in a fully online program, students may be required to attend short conferences, seminars, proctored exams, field trips, practicums, or internships. Students seeking a bachelor’s degree in an online program at UHV may need to complete some core curriculum or elective courses at another university and transfer the credits to UHV in order to complete all requirements.

UHV programs which typically lead to licensure (education, counseling, etc.) are designed to meet the licensing requirements in Texas and may not meet requirements in other states. Students who wish to seek professional licensure in other states should contact their academic advisor or program director for help learning about their home state’s requirements.

Out-of-state students who wish to file a consumer complaint should follow the Complaint Resolution Process described in the Course Catalog or the UHV Student Handbook.

More information about the reciprocity agreements can be found on the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements website.


The priority admissions application deadlines are listed below.  Note: Students who apply after the deadline will still be reviewed for consideration, but should be aware that certain academic programs have specific requirements which could preclude a student from enrolling. It is highly encouraged to submit credentials as early as possible to ensure adequate time for processing before registration.
