Temporary Graduate Admission
Temporary Graduate Student Admission
To be eligible for admission under the temporary graduate classification in the graduate career, a student must have at least a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution but not be admitted to a graduate program at UHV. An official transcript showing the completion of the student’s most recent degree must be sent directly from the institution conferring that degree to UH-Victoria.
Students who reside outside the United States to complete the graduate program may be granted temporary graduate admission status. Holders of F-1 student visa must be fully approved into a graduate program and the university prior to enrolling in classes if you come to the United States to complete your graduate studies. All students must provide proof of English proficiency prior to approval for admission. Although unofficial documents may be accepted for course registration purposes, official transcripts showing the last semester of course work and degree earned must be received in the Office of Admissions by the 12th day of classes during the fall and spring terms and by the 4th day of classes during the summer terms.
Temporary graduate students may take a maximum of 12 credit hours of graduate work. Temporary graduate students in the School of Education and Human Development’s VOICE program may take a maximum of 18 credit hours of graduate work. If a temporary graduate student is later admitted to a graduate program, applicable graduate courses taken, up to a maximum of 12 credit hours (18 for VOICE students) successfully completed within the previous 10 years or the period specified by the degree program, will be included on the student’s degree plan as approved by the school.
Temporary graduate students intending to seek admission to a graduate program are officially approved temporarily into a graduate program, up to a maximum of 12 semester credit hours. Temporary graduate students seeking admission to a graduate program may obtain application forms from the Office of Admissions. A student must file a new application for a future term if the student does not enroll for the term indicated on the original application. Permanent admission to a graduate program will be made on the basis of an admission index (see “Requirements for Graduate Admission”). Temporary graduate students NOT intending to seek admission to a graduate program are considered “Non-Degree Seeking,” and are not eligible for federal financial aid funds.
