At UH-Victoria, the Office of Admissions Processing is responsible for administering UHV admissions policies.

Admission policies that were previously located on this page can now be found on the Policies  page.

General Admission/Application Information

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. You will find steps to the admission process, 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 will receive the application within 1 to 2 business days. The applicant will receive a myUHV student ID number by email. The applicant can then 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 based on incorrect information or omitted facts, which, if known, would have caused the applicant to be ineligible.

Students must contact the Office of Admissions Processing if they do not enroll for the semester/term indicated on the original application.

If a student does not contact the Office of Admissions Processing to update their term or enroll for their admitted term, the student’s account will be deactivated. At that time, the student must reapply through ApplyTexas and pay the $25 application fee.

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 programs 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 to meet 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 seeking 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.
