Do I need my Transcripts from Other Institutions sent to UVU before I Apply for Graduation?

No. There is a section in the online application where you can indicate if you are sending transcripts from another college/university.


Can I Graduate with More than 1 Bachelor Degree?

Yes. All requirements must be met for both degrees and you must complete "30 semester hours beyond the original degree." You apply for each Bachelor degree separately & receive 2 diplomas.


What is a Dual Major?

This is when a student is seeking two Bachelor degrees but has not met the required "30 semester hours beyond the original degree" requirement as listed in UVU's Course Catalog under the Graduation and General Education section. You apply for 1 Bachelor degree and receive 1 diploma with both majors listed.

Due to specific major requirements, very few majors have fewer than 30 semester hours difference. Students must have prior approval to seek a dual major.

Approximately 8-10 weeks after the end of the semester, graduation deficiency notices will show in the Graduation and Diploma Status link listed below.

When will my Records Show I have Graduated?

The Graduation Office will start awarding/posting degrees approximately 2 weeks after the end of each semester. This posting process takes approximately 6-8 weeks and is done alphabetically by last name. The moment your degree is awarded/posted, the status text in the Graduation and Diploma Status link will say "Graduated for (year and semester)."
