UHV now offers a test-optional policy, which means you can choose whether to submit your SAT or ACT scores as part of your application. This option allows you to showcase your strengths and achievements beyond standardized test scores.

We’re remaining Test Optional

The University of Houston-Victoria will not require first-time college applicants to submit an ACT or SAT score for admission. Your freshman application will be reviewed with or without test scores (as in the ACT or SAT). Applicants applying without a test score must meet a different set of requirements. Below is a comparison of admissions requirements with or without test scores:

Official Transcript Options

Electronic Transcripts

We highly recommend requesting your high school or institution to send your transcripts electronically through a TREx (for Texas institutions) or EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) system. This method is preferred as it enables faster processing of your application.

eDoc Service

If electronic submission is not available, you can ask your school administrator to send us a PDF version of your official transcript through secure eDoc services such as Naviance/Parchment or Speede (FICE code: 013231). When prompted for our university email, please provide admissions@uhv.edu. Please note that transcripts sent via email as direct attachments will not be accepted as official documents.

Mailed Transcripts

If electronic submission or eDoc services are not feasible, you can request your high school or institution to mail your official transcripts to the following address:

Office of Admissions
University of Houston-Victoria
3007 N. Ben Wilson
Victoria, TX 77901

Authenticity

Ensuring the authenticity and accuracy of your transcripts is vital in our evaluation process. Please make sure your transcripts are official and sent directly from your high school or institution.
