UHV open house to help students prepare for summer, fall semesters
May 18, 2013 at 5:18 a.m.
University of Houston-Victoria staff members will host an open house for current, future and transfer students.
The UHV Open House will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday in the Multi-Purpose Room of the UHV University Center, 3007 N. Ben Wilson St.
The event is free, and advance registration is not required.
Summer classes begin June 3, and fall classes get underway Aug. 26.
"Students always have last-minute items that need to be completed before the semester starts," said Billy Lagal, manager of UHV's Letting Education Achieve Dreams and student recruitment programs. "This event gathers all the resources needed for students to finalize requirements needed before starting the summer or fall semesters."
UHV representatives from the four academic schools and different service departments will be on hand to guide students through any requirements they need to complete before the semesters begin. Representatives also will be able to answer any questions students have about the campus and student life.
At the open house, students will be able to:
Fill out an admission application
Register for courses
Talk with an advisor
Apply for financial aid
Sign up for student housing
Make a fee payment
Learn about student life activities
Take a campus tour
Students who are transferring from another school, or who are heading back to college, can bring a copy of their unofficial transcripts for on-site advising or registration.
Any necessary immunization documentation, including a record of the state-required bacterial meningitis vaccine for students under age 30, also can be brought along.
