Additional types of Students
We welcome many other additional types such as Military and Veteran students, adult students who are 25 years or older but are attending college for the first time, students who are interested in dual credit, and students who are looking for fully online programs.
The Dual Credit program at the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) provides an opportunity for high school students to earn college credit while still in high school.
Students who successfully complete dual credit courses earn both high school and college credit simultaneously. This allows them to get a head start on their college education and accumulate credits that can be applied toward a degree program at UHV or transferred to other colleges and universities.
UHV's Dual Credit program offers a wide range of course options across various disciplines, including English, mathematics, science, social sciences, and more. This enables students to explore their academic interests, fulfill general education requirements, and gain exposure to college-level coursework.
Dual Credit Partners
Participating in the Dual Credit program can lead to significant cost savings for students and their families. UHV offers reduced tuition rates for dual credit courses, making college education more affordable and accessible.
Participation in the Dual Credit program may have specific eligibility requirements and enrollment procedures, which can vary depending on the high school and UHV's policies. It's recommended to consult with your high school counselor or UHV's Dual Credit program coordinator for detailed information regarding course availability, registration, and any prerequisites or qualifications needed.
UHV is committed to supporting adult learners throughout their academic journey. We provide a range of academic support services, including tutoring, academic advising, career counseling, and access to library resources. These services are tailored to meet the unique needs of adult learners and help them succeed in their studies.
Community and Networking Opportunities
UHV's Adult Learners Program offers a supportive and inclusive community where adult students can connect with peers who share similar life experiences and educational goals. Additionally, UHV provides networking opportunities, workshops, and events specifically designed to enhance the professional development and career prospects of adult learners.
Financial Aid and Scholarships
UHV offers financial aid options and scholarships specifically for adult learners. These resources can help make higher education more affordable and accessible for those returning to college or starting their educational journey later in life.
