1. Apply to UVU
Submit the online application on www.uvu.edu/admissions and pay the application fee. You will then receive an email confirming your application and providing you with your UV ID number. To complete the application process, submit the following
a. Official transcripts: All transcripts must arrive at UVU in an unopened envelope from the sending institution and must be printed within the last six months to be considered official. Items must be postmarked before the admission deadline.
b. Official ACT or SAT scores: Current ACT or SAT scores are required for all students under age 24, and either ACT/SAT or Accuplacer is required for all students regardless of age. Send official test scores to the Admissions Office. If the ACT or SAT have not been completed or are expired (two years for math and three years for English), placement testing (ACT-R, Accuplacer) is required and can be taken at Testing Services in the Wolverine Service Center. ACT-R testing is offered on a weekly basis by appointment; Accuplacer testing is given daily on a walk-in basis. If you cannot complete the New Student Assessment Test at UVU Campus, you may call the Aviation Student Support Center at 1-888-901-7192 to set up a Compass Test in your area. All testing must be complete before the admissions deadline.
