Geico Partnership


Geico Employee Partnership Program

The University of Houston-Victoria is proud to announce its partnership with Geico to help its associates complete their core business courses or earn a business degree. The Employee Partnership Program gives employees the opportunity to complete their core courses close to home, close to work, at work or online.

Partnership benefits:

  • Waived application fee.
  • Deferred tuition payments for all pre-approved Geico employees.
  • Depending on the employees’ completion of approved course(s) with a grade of C- or better, the employee will receive the tuition benefit paid directly to their student account by Geico.
  • Flexible class schedules:
    • In Person at UHV Katy, 22400 Grand Circle Blvd., Katy, TX 77449
    • Online
  • Pre-advising on course completion and alignment of previous credits taken toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree.
  • Completion of college credits through an accredited state university. The College of Business is accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.


  • What if I have already completed a bachelor’s degree?
    • UHV has aligned approved graduate-level business courses with Geico’s Core Requirements. You may be able to complete core course requirements with graduate-level courses that also apply toward the completion of a Master of Business Administration (MBA). These pre-approved courses would also qualify for the tuition deferral benefit.
  • Can I qualify for any scholarships while also using tuition deferment?
    • GEICO employees may qualify for any other internal and external scholarships. You will simply submit UHV’s Scholarship application and our Financial Aid office will contact you with any scholarship opportunities.
