A minor is a small grouping of courses in a particular field that is important to developing a broad based knowledge of an academic area in a relatively short period of time as compared to that of doing a second major. Minors allow you to gain skills in a second area that compliments your main interests in your major. Sometimes, having the right minor can serve as a sort of tiebreaker between you and an otherwise equally qualified competitor for the same job.3. How do I change my major?
Any of the advisors in the Woodbury School of Business can change your major to a School of Business Degree. Please come in to the Woodbury School of Business Advisement office, WB 257 or call 801-863-8032.4. Why do I need to see an advisor and how do I make an appointment?
All new and transfer students must see an advisor after being admitted to UVU. After you have been cleared to register for classes, advisement is no longer a requirement.

Advisors can help you avoid common pitfalls. Also, students who are on academic warning or probation must meet with an advisor in order to be cleared to register. To make an appointment with an advisor call the School of Business Advisement office at (801) 863-8032.5. What is matriculation/advanced standing?
