Academic Excellence

UHV has been recognized by many national organizations that evaluate universities, including The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report. Several specific academic degree programs also have drawn top rankings.


Don't Wait

Start your graduate degree early with our Temporary Graduate program.

All you need is a bachelor’s degree and you can get started on your graduate degree before you even are admitted into a graduate program. Why do this? It can give you time to increase your GRE score or take the GRE. Maybe you’re waiting on letters of recommendation or need to finish up your writing samples. Temporary Graduate status is not available for our graduate Psychology programs. Learn more and get started today.

Visit Campus

If you are considering one of our graduate programs, one of the best ways to determine if it is right for you is to visit our campus to talk with faculty and students in your program of interest. Please join us by attending any of these upcoming events, or look over our university calendar to coordinate when you might want to visit.
