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.

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.

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 IM 2600 or IM 2010 with a grade of B- or higher. Students may also complete the Excel Educator course through MyEducator with an 80 percent or higher for the Computer Proficiency. See your Woodbury School of Business advisor for additional details.
