Adult Completion Program at UHV

At University of Houston-Victoria, we focus on providing access to higher education to all, including busy adults who still need to complete a bachelor’s degree. UHV goes beyond offering online classes and flexible class schedules, we focus on helping students 25 years old or older, who may need to work full-time while attending college, who have dependents, and who may have been out of college for a few years. To help you return and finish, we have created a variety of flexible degree programs to help you transfer as many credits as possible. You can now see how your completed college credits can apply to one or more different degree programs with our Transfer Credit Estimator
