For transfer students from any Utah State Higher Education Institution (USHE), UVU shall accept at full value all General Education course work approved by the sending institution (with a "C-" grade or higher received) in any area specified by the Board of Regents document R470. These areas include Composition, Quantitative Literacy, Fine Arts, Humanities, Social and Behavioral Science, Biology, and Physical Science.
UVU requires transfer students to complete any additional coursework needed to satisfy the unmet portions of the UVU General Education Requirements. Previously completed General Studies course work will be applied to assure the best possible fit with UVU General Education Requirements.
An Associate in Science/Arts degree earned at any USHE institution will meet the General Education requirements of UVU (except - all students must meet College Writing, Quantitative Literacy and American Institutions requirements). Some majors may require students to complete specific general education courses.

Once UVU has received and evaluated a student's official transcript from another college, the student may find out how their credits have been accepted through UVLink (see UVLink Transfer Credit Awarded Instructions below). UVLink will display transfer credit that has been awarded up to the current moment. Information included in the Transfer Credit Awarded section are the dates UVU received and reviewed your transcript(s), the school(s) you took the course(s) from, the course(s) you took at the other school(s), the grade(s) you received, and the equivalent(s) which UVU awarded for the course(s).
The Transfer Credit Office uses a General Education Code System to aid in granting credit for courses not offered at UVU. Please refer to the current UVU Course Catalog underGraduation and General Education then General Education Code System for questions you may have regarding codes when viewing how your credits have transferred to UVU.
