FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I make an appointment?

Call the Department of Languages and Cultures Office at 801-863-8518 or email Languages@uvu.edu to make an appointment with your advisor.

Why do you only take appointments?

By taking appointments, our advisors can be sure they are there and are prepared for the meeting with you.  If something comes up, we have your contact information so you don’t arrive at the advisor’s office and find our advisor not able to assist you.

What if I really just need to ask a quick question?

If you have a quick question, you can always send us an email or our office admins may be able to answer a general question you have.  Occasionally we offer walk-in hours which is a first-come, first-service opportunity to talk – quick questions taking only 10-15 minutes at most.  Otherwise, you will be asked to make an appointment.  Call the office to ask when walk-in hours are offered (801-863-8518).

How often do you answer emails?

We answer email every day, and make a point of responding no later than three days after an email is sent.  Sometimes you might get a response within ten minutes!

How soon can I make an appointment?

You can book appointments anywhere from 12 hours in advance to 3 weeks in advance.  There are NO same day appointments.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Ideally, you should come prepared for your appointment by first reviewing your Wolverine Track and identifying what classes you are interested in and what degree you are wanting to major in.

What if I’m late for my appointment?

If you’'re more than ten minutes late, you might be told to reschedule.  As your advisor, we will be there on time and prepared for you, and it is your responsibility and common courtesy to do the same in return.
