**This is from my online experience NOT in person** Overall my experience here wasn't the best, but it wasn't as horrible as I had experienced with the previous university. For the MOST PART the professors I had were good, but they were either good professors or they were HORRIBLE, there was no in between. The reason I'm giving this three stars is because I'm having to drop out because I don't have 2 accounting classes, which means I have to be a transient at a different college for 1-2 semesters and pay out of pocket (which I can't do) all because of TWO classes. The reason is because they don't offer lower level classes here at all, but especially online where it's even more limited. I work full time so I can't attend school in person. But when I entered the Human Resources Management (HRM) program I was told that it was available fully online and that I would be able to complete the degree with all the classes I already had. This was a lie, which I find out when I only have 2 semesters left before I graduate. Now, I'm having to drop with only 2 semesters (nearly one year) left all because I was lied to about the program at the beginning before I applied. Everyone here (meaning financial aid, admin. people, etc.) were very nice, but they lied just to get me into the school. Overall, don't attend here unless you have every last one of your lower level classes completed or you'll end up like me over 2 accounting classes that you can't complete. Very frustrating.

If I could put no stars I would. I have spent the last 3 years trying to get things done at this college. My son was taking courses and we were okay until the last year of his degree. He had one course that was a on-line course required for graduation. It is only offered once a year. He signed up for it and it didn't make. He had to call to find out about the course not making. They did not notify him. This was a required course for graduation that is only offered once a year and they didn't have it! This was the only course he needed to graduate! We had to write to the President of the College and while he offered apologies..the course did not come up again until the following year. We had to write again to get the course offered. After completing the course, we waited for a diploma. No diploma. We didn't apply for it in time. Apparently you have to apply in February for spring graduation. Applied for summer graduation. this is now November and we have not received the diploma. We kept calling to find out why and were constantly reassured that it was mis-delivered and we would get it. Today, he drove the 2 hour trip to Victoria and found that they had placed a hold on the diploma because of a fee they had never told him about. Even after the phone calls about not receiving the diploma...NO ONE checked to see why it had not been issued. No idea now when the diploma will come. But it has taken 2 years to get one on line course and almost 6 months to find out why his diploma has not arrived. Do yourself a favor and NEVER ATTEND THIS SCHOOL.

As a graduate, most professors care liberally for students. Education degrees are specific, but this is a worldly public school so dont expect any wisdom from God. The professors have love for students however. It would be nice if someone let there be a chapel on campus.

Overall Rating:

The MBA course used to be good in face to face classes but due to fall in enrollment, UHV has now reduced the requirements from 48 credit hours to 36 credit hours. They had already reduced the face 2 face classes in favor of online classes (which are not of good quality). Looks like the sole focus of UHV is to make money by catering to students who care more about getting a degree than actually learning any skills.

Wife likes the place, very clean, nice parking area, students need to watch were the hell they are walking and get off the phone while driving!Edit, from what I understand this school is trying to push for a $1000.00 parking pass. This would be mandatory for all students even for the ones that go to this school online. Scam! I could understand 25-150$ if they really needed to enforce a parking permit but damn!
