PARENTS OF FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS

As your student begins college they will be experiencing so many new and exciting things that it might be overwhelming for them to know how to navigate a successful path forward. UVU has a very specific set of required/recommended activities for freshmen that are outlined in detail on our First Year Experience site. These activities are "best practices" designed to help new college students build a successful foundation. Please become familiar with them, as parents and family are invited to participate in several of the activities, too. And, now that you are part of the UVU family, be sure to sign up for our Parent Newsletter and stay in the UVU loop!

PARENTS OF CONTINUING STUDENTS

College is a rewarding journey, but it is not meant to last forever. Even experienced students can benefit from a little extra support and guidance to get them successfully through their college experience. We encourage parents and family members to be familiar with UVU's resources that keep students moving forward toward program completion. Additionally, UVU has excellent career development and internship services designed to help your student transition successfully from college to a productive and meaningful life!
