Utah Valley University maintains an open admission practice, admitting all applicants whose qualifications indicate they may benefit from the instructional programs offered. UVU provides educational opportunity free from discrimination in accordance with federal and state law and University Core Values. Applicants must adhere to established admission deadlines and provide all required application material as stipulated by the University. Admission deadlines and required application materials are published in the current UVU catalog and the the UVU website. Admission to the University does not constitute admission into an individual major or program of study. Some programs of study may require additional program admission processes. Enrollment standards are established by President's Council. Newly admitted students who do not meet the enrollment standards shall be guided through a series of requirements designed to support their academic success.
As a member institution of the Western Interstate Commission of Higher Education (WICHE), UVU participates in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE). This program offers reduced tuition for students whose permanent residence is in one of the participating states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming.
The WUE tuition rate is 150% of the Resident tuition rate for the semester in which the student is enrolled (roughly $1,200 more than the resident rate). Students interested in taking advantage of this program must complete the WUE Contract (Spring 2014) (Summer & Fall 2014) and return it to the UVU Admissions Office. If you have any questions contact the Admissions Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students on the WUE program are not able to gain Utah residency during any semester they are a WUE participant. Time in Utah cannot be counted towards Utah residency requirements.
Even as a non-Utah resident, you may qualify* for in-state tuition at UVU.
Take advantage of UVU's deferred admission program, which encourages future students to apply now, but enroll in courses upon their return.
