Texas Residency

Under state statutes pursuant to Title 3 Texas Education Code and the Rules and Regulations for Determining Residence Status made known by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) which interpret those statutes, an individual will be classified as a resident or nonresident. Residency rules are adopted and amended by legislative action.

Homeschool Graduates are required to take and submit either the ACT or SAT exam and meet 2 of the 3 requirements listed above.  Upon receiving test scores, the student will be assigned a class rank based on the average class rank for those with comparable exam scores.  Home-schooled transcripts must be signed by the principal.

Official Transcripts 

Here are options on how to send your transcript(s) to UHV: 

  •  Ask your high school or institution administrator to send your transcript data electronically through an TREx (for Texas institutions) or EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) system. (Preferred method for faster service) 
  • Send using an eDoc service: Can't send it electronically? That’s okay! Ask your school administrator to send us a PDF version of your official transcript through Naviance/Parchment, Speede (FICE code: 013231), or any other secure eDoc service. If a service asks for our university email, please useadmissions@uhv.eduPlease note, transcripts sent via email as a direct attachment will NOT be accepted and will be unofficial. 
  • If both of these options aren't available, ask your high school or institution to mail your official transcripts to the address listed above.

  • Admission application
