The University of Houston-Victoria was founded in 1973 as the University of Houston Victoria Center. Ten years later, a bill was passed by the Texas Legislature to allow the center to become UHV with permanent status as a degree-granting university offering junior-, senior- and graduate-level courses. Legislation signed into law in 2009 allowed UHV to admit its first freshmen and sophomores in fall 2010. UHV is now a dynamic destination university in the Coastal Bend region of Texas that serves the educational needs, promotes the economic well-being and advances the quality of life for the university and community through teaching, research and service excellence.
UHV offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the following colleges, many of which can be earned online:
