University of Houston-Victoria

University College

The Honors Program at UHV will fulfill the needs of students who are academically talented and motivated. We seek students who are searching for a university experience that offers enriched opportunities and challenges.

Students will be recruited for the Honors Program through presentations during orientation and other student events. The director of the Honors Program will work with UHV’s recruiting offices to identify incoming students who are candidates for the Honors Program. Application materials will be sent to students who meet application criteria. The goal will be to attract the top 5 to 10% of incoming students. There is no deadline to join the Honors Program—after the first semester students with high GPAs will be offered a chance to join the program. Students who transfer or join late will be considered for inclusion as well.
