Even as a non-Utah resident, you may qualify for in-state tuition at UVU. The Reduced Tuition Program and various scholarship opportunities help make university education affordable. Also, out-of-state students have the option to explore residency options while they attend UVU.
UVU is an open-admission university, meaning no student is denied admission. The University does, however, have enrollment standards in order to help students enroll in courses that match their academic preparation and ability.
UVU is located in the beautiful Utah Valley just south of Salt Lake City. Orem City, the home of UVU, was ranked as the 19th most safe city out of 500 cities in America in 2012. Safe communities and low cost of living make Utah Valley a prime location for an institution of higher education like UVU.
UVU and Brigham Young University's campuses are only five miles apart, so UVU students get to live in a true "college town" environment. The Provo/Orem area is the hot spot for those looking for the college lifestyle. Mix and mingle with fellow students and check out what Utah Valley has to offer.
Although UVU is one of the largest universities in the state, we are committed to giving our students the best classroom experience possible. Small class sizes and alternative degree options like online and hybrid courses give you flexibility in your education.
