Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the wait list for courses work?
A: I have built an instructional slide show that should help you navigate this new registration feature:
Q: When do you meet with students?
A: We meet with students all year long, and we are usually here Monday through Friday. Typically, we meet with students between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, with the last available appointment beginning at 3:30. During peak times, such as the beginning of the term, we will not schedule appointments and only do walk-ins. Appointments are usually about a half hour long or less. We want you to come prepared with your UV ID number and your questions about the program.
Q: What if I am out-of-state or I cannot make it on campus at that time?
A: We do make phone appointments and can also do quite a bit via e-mail.
Q: How can I make an appointment?
A: Call Natalie Limb at: 863-8452 (Communication Dept. Office). She is in the office from 8:00 am–4:00 pm, Monday–Friday.
Q: What does an Academic Advisor do?
A: We assist students with their registration, graduation plans, course selection, department-specific career options, and much more. We are not experts on applications, financial aid, tuition, accessibility services, or student employment. However, we are happy to help you get in contact with experts in these areas.
Q: But I just have a quick question?
A: Please feel free to e-mail us, call, or stop by. We may inform you that we need to meet in order to fully address your issue.
Q: I have a hold. Can't you just remove it?
A: Holds are placed on student records for a variety of reasons. Most of the time there is some action that must be taken for the hold to be removed. If you are a new student, we must meet (this can be over the phone if you are out-of-state) in order for the hold to be removed. If it is an Academic Standards hold, see http://www.uvu.edu/academicstandards/ for more information.
Q: I am having a problem with my professor, what can you do for me?
A: Our first response to these issues is usually "Have you talked to them yet?" If you haven't addressed it directly with them then there is little we can do. If the issue cannot be resolved with the professor we can point you in the direction of on-campus resources. It is not our job to be your advocate in a dispute with a professor. If you feel you have been the victim of abuse by your professor we want to know about it immediately. Short of that you need to fight your own battles.
Q: Which class/professor is the easiest?
A: If you have the audacity to ask us this question we reserve the right to give you bad information.
