Graduate Transfer Credit
The graduate transfer student must meet the regular admission requirements. Credit may be transferred only for graduate credit courses completed with a grade of A or B and completed in residence under a graduate degree program at a college or university with recognition in some form from the U.S. Department of Education or the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. These courses must be certified as graduate level by the Office of the Registrar and Student Records of UHV. Except for the graduate business and nursing programs, the transfer student must complete 75% of the coursework required for a degree program at UHV (for example, 36 hours in a 48 hour program) unless transferring from a UH System institution. In the latter case, the student must complete 50% at UHV. The graduate business programs accept only 6 semester credit hours in transfer, subject to approval by the Dean’s Office. The graduate nursing programs accept only 9 semester credit hours of graduate transfer hours, subject to approval by the UHV academic advisor.
Advanced work completed with another institution prior to the time the institution offered graduate credit will not apply as credit toward an advanced degree at UH-Victoria. The student bears the final responsibility for securing the Office of the Registrar and Student Records’ evaluation. Approval of transfer credit toward a degree is by the appropriate school dean with the advice and consent of the president or his/her designee.
Graduate credit is not granted for correspondence courses and courses taken prior to the student’s admission to a graduate school.
