The UVU flight program is a demanding program and requires full commitment each semester. There are no requirements to enter the professional pilot Bachelor of Science degree, but due to the current demand in aviation we are not able to accommodate all new students wanting to start flight training until their 2  nd or 3  rd semester.

Enrollment in the on-campus professional pilot flight courses are by a competitive points-based application and contingent upon completion of required prerequisites. New aviation students must meet with an aviation academic advisor before registering for flight courses. A class II Medical from a FAA designated Medical Examiner is required and must be completed prior to applying to the flight training program.

In addition to UVU tuition, students training at the UVU flight school will pay flight course fees to cover costs associated with the required flight training. For more information regarding student loans, please contact the UVU financial aid & scholarship office located at the main UVU campus.

Students for whom English is a second language are conditionally admitted but must demonstrate acceptable level of English skills prior to beginning flight training. New students may be required to meet additional English language proficiency standards set by the school and determined through both oral and written testing.
