Whats Next After You Apply

1. Complete the Application

Fill out the application completely (must be 18 years or older to apply) and pay the $100 application fee.

2. Affidavit of Support

The Affidavit of Support form is to be completed by the person who will be providing money for tuition, fees and living expenses, with an original bank statement or Tax return attached. Please note: If you are sponsoring yourself you will need to provide a letter from your bank showing the needed amount on deposit under your name.

 All financial support papers must be in english, showing amounts in U.S. Dollars.

3. Official Transcripts or Records

Send official transcripts or records, with your application, showing you have graduated from a school level that meets U.S. high school requirements for graduation.

4. English Proficiency is Required

You must submit either an official TOEFL test score (66 or better, IBT) or the IELTS- 6.0 or better. Test scores must be less than one year old. If you meet English proficiency requirements, you must take an entrance exam prior to registering for classes. This exam will determine your first semester classes. If you apply for English as a Second Language no test score is required, however you must attend at least one full semester before testing out of ESL and requesting an undergraduate I-20.

5. Transferring from Another Institution

 This step applies to transfer students only.

If you transfer from another institution in the United States, your previous school must complete the Transfer certification form. Put your name on the top of the document, and give the form to the previous school. The previous school will complete the form and send it directly to Utah Valley University along with an official copy of your transcript from their institution.

6. Notice of Processing Time

Please allow 3-4 weeks for documents to be reviewed, processed, and returned to you in time for your current school to transfer your SEVIS record (I-20) to UVU prior to the beginning of class. You will be required to attend a mandatory orientation for all new UVU students.
