FAQ and Concerns


Will I be risking my personal information doing this?

Microsoft Teams is HIPAA and FERPA certified.

What does that mean?

In the simplest terms, these are both regulations that help to secure all personal information that you share with UVU in general, or with UVU Medical Services.

Do I have to have Teams to have my photo verified?

Having Teams on your Desktop or Phone is not a requirement for this verification. All you have to do is select the Join on the web option when starting your meeting.

Can I use a different email, and not my UVU one?

Unfortunately not. Because of the high security standards required for this interaction, only the UVU provided email address is accepted.

What if the time I first picked doesn't work for me?

From the email that was sent with your meeting time you may select More options, then Propose a new time, if something has come up and you are unable to meet at this scheduled time.

What if I don't have a microphone or camera on my computer?

If you are unable to participate in this process on a computer, you can also use your phone for these meetings. If neither of these options will be available to you, please let us know in your email.

What if I'm not registered for classes?

Unfortunately if you are not registered for any classes you will not be able to get an ID card. We can help you through the ID Card process as soon as you are registered for at least one credit, or during your new student Jumpstart orientation.
