Accessibility to Courses

All 1000- and 2000-level business courses are open to all UVU students along with selected 3000- and 4000-level courses. Some courses have prerequisites, which must be satisfied. No more than 9 credits of upper-division courses can be taken before a student has been formally matriculated into the UVU Woodbury School of Business.

Repeating Failed Foundation Core Courses

Each business major has foundation core courses. A student will be allowed to repeat a failed foundation core course only twice. If the foundation core course is not passed with a minimum grade of “C-” after the third retake, the student will not be allowed to apply for advanced standing (matriculation) toward a degree in one of the Woodbury School of Business majors.

Business Computer Proficiency Exam

Most of the degrees offered in the Woodbury School of Business require the student to demonstrate business computer proficiency. Students pursuing most bachelor degrees must complete this proficiency requirement before they can be matriculated. This proficiency can be attained by completing the Business Computer Proficiency exam with a score of 80 percent or higher or complete the IM 2010 course with a score of 80 percent or higher. The prerequisite for IM 2010 is (IM 1010 recommended) or (Basic Computer Applications Challenge Exam with a minimum score of 80% recommended). Students can either complete the IM 1010 course with a score of 80 percent or higher or take the exam in the Aculis Testing Center located in CS 612.
