Frequently Asked Questions

What majors do you offer?

UVU offers an Associate in Science and an Associate in Arts in Criminal Justice, Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science, Minor in Criminal Justice and Minor in Forensic Science

What is a minor and what can a minor do for me?

A minor is a small grouping of courses in a particular field that is important to developing a broad based knowledge of an academic area in a relatively short period of time as compared to that of doing a second major.

Minors allow you to gain skills in a second area that compliments your main interests in your major. Sometimes, having the right minor can serve as a sort of tiebreaker between you and an otherwise equally qualified competitor for the same job.

How do I apply to UVU?

To apply to UVU please visit www.uvu.edu/admissions.  Please be aware of admission deadlines for the fall and spring semesters.  During the application process, you will need to select the major you are pursuing.

How do I apply for Financial Aid/Scholarships/Grants

To apply for financial aid (loans and grants) and scholarships, please visit www.uvu.edu/financialaid/.

Scholarship deadlines for the upcoming year are due February 1 for all new students. Once you have applied for financial aid, please check your myuvu email and the financial aid menu to see if there are any requirements that you need to complete to receive your award.

When can I meet with an Academic Advisor?

Our advisors can help you with any questions you have about the program or how your coursework will transfer to UVU.  However, we are limited as to what information we can provide until you have applied and been admitted to UVU.

Once you have been admitted to UVU, you can schedule an appointment to meet with your assigned academic advisor. Please make sure that you have been formally admitted (all testing completed, all official transcripts received, etc.) and have completed the online orientation found at www.uvu.edu/orientation prior to scheduling your appointment
