General Registration Information
Online registration is required for every term of attendance at UH-Victoria. Specific dates and detailed instructions for each registration period are included in the class schedule available online “Registration / Payment Calendar”. Registration is not final until the student has completed all registration procedures and tuition and fees are paid in full. NOTE: Students will not be allowed to register for classes at this campus or any other UH institution until all UH System financial indebtedness has been cleared.
Students completing registration during the late registration cycle will be assessed a non-refundable late registration fee. Questions regarding registration should be directed to the Office of the Registrar and Student Records.
Cancellation of Registration
A student may cancel registration after payment without financial penalty if the student does so before the official first day of class. The student is entitled to a full refund and is regarded as never having registered.
A class schedule of course offerings for the term, may be viewed in advance of the beginning of the term online. The “Important Dates & Deadlines” calendar includes online registration dates and procedures. Course offerings are generally available for web viewing on the following dates:
Fall – April 1 Spring – November 1 Summer – April 1
Class Membership and Attendance
A student should not attend a class unless properly registered for that course and section. Failure to follow proper registration procedures may jeopardize the student’s good standing at the university and result in a loss of credit. Instructor’s class rolls are made up only from the official enrollment records. A student whose name is not on the class roll in each registered class should contact the Office of the Registrar and Student Records to verify proper registration. “Attendance” at UHV is defined currently to include attendance in person or by correspondence, including participation via paper correspondence, video conference, satellite, Internet or other electronic or telecommunication method where students are not physically present in a classroom. (A “student” is defined as an individual who is or has been “in attendance” at an educational agency or institution and regarding whom the agency or institution maintains education records.)
The university reserves the right, when necessary, to discontinue classes or to otherwise alter the schedule. If a class is discontinued, students will be notified as soon as possible by the academic school, so that they may register for alternate courses. A student who is enrolled in a discontinued class must officially drop the course and, if the student wishes to enroll in another section, the student must officially drop and add immediately. If the university discontinues a course and the student elects not to replace it with another course, then the student will receive a refund from the Office of Administration and Finance.
Add/Drop Courses - Section Changes
After completing registration the student may add a course or change a class section during the times listed in the “Important Dates & Deadlines” calendar available online at www.uhv.edu . The form for section changes is available online with Admissions. The student should check the “Important Dates & Deadlines” calendar for important deadlines and information regarding adding and dropping sections.
Prerequisites and co-requisites as specified under the UHV course listings are enforced. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.
A student who plans to graduate at the end of the current term should check the academic calendar for deadlines to apply for graduation. The student must apply for graduation before the deadline indicated for each term in the academic calendar. Students who have not applied for graduation will not be graduated in a given term. The application for graduation is submitted online through the Student Self-Service system (myUHV).
