At UH-Victoria, the Office of Admissions and Records and the Registrar are responsible for administering UHV admissions policies.

Official Transcripts

All official transcripts must be sent from the sending institution directly to UH-Victoria and must be received in the Office of Admissions and Records no later than the 12th class day of a fall or spring semester/term or no later than the 4th class day of a summer term; failure to comply with this requirement may result in the applicant’s being administratively withdrawn from all classes for the fall, spring, or summer semester/term and the student may forfeit all tuition and fees.

Students must supply the UHV Office of Admissions and Records with official transcripts, mark(grade) sheets, and confirmation of degrees or diplomas of any and all academic studies attempted at international colleges/universities prior to enrollment. If necessary for English translation, two sets of official transcripts are required. One set must be in the original language and one English translation (if necessary), describing all academic studies attempted and completed must be on file before the final evaluation can proceed. Transcripts should plainly indicate the dates of attendance, the subjects, and the marks (grades) earned. They should also reflect any degrees or diplomas awarded.

Official transcripts should be issued directly to UHV by the registrar, principal or responsible head of each institution attended. When this is not possible, documents certified by an embassy or consular official as true copies may be accepted. Uncertified copies are not acceptable. The university will make a reasonable determination of those courses completed outside the United States. However, international students may be required to have a catalog match evaluation performed by an outside agency in order to determine course equivalencies. This may take longer to complete, and it is imperative that students submit international documents as early as possible to ensure adequate time for application approval.

If a student has previously obtained a comprehensive evaluation from an outside agency, UHV will accept an official copy of the evaluation and a copy of the original documents for admission purposes. The student should request the agency to send the evaluation copy, as well as a copy of the documents evaluated, directly to the Office of Admissions and Records.

There are no specific deadlines for admission applications from citizens or permanent residents of the United States. However, applicants should submit credentials as early as possible to ensure adequate time for processing before registration.

International students must submit applications for admission and all supporting admission documentation, regardless of your degree objective, by the following dates to ensure time for processing:

Fall – June 1 Spring – October 1 Summer – March 1
