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.
