Intramural and Club Sports

The Intramural Sports Program is one of the largest co-curricular activity programs that complement the formal academic curriculum.

Participation in the program is voluntary and determined by interest.

Participation can provide one with opportunities to have fun, learn new sports, meet people from other cultures, test one’s physical ability as well as offer a break from routine. Team sports generally take on a league structure and a post-season tournament to determine champions. Special events range from one day to several day tournaments. In most events, skill levels and divisions are established to allow competition for men’s, women’s, co-ed and Mixed teams at various skill levels.

The Intramural Sports program strives to provide programming for all levels of ability and experience. Our aim is to serve the recreational needs of the majority of the student body and not just the athletic minority.

Club Sports bridge the gap between intramural and intercollegiate athletics by providing competition at specialized levels, participation in tournaments, and opportunities to practice. Although some clubs remain solely recreational, most are highly competitive.

UVU Club Sports offers a structured environment to practice and play the game students’ love.  Participation in Club Sports allows individuals to engage with the University in a unique way.  Club Sports are managed and run by the participants themselves, including coach selection, travel, fundraising, scheduling, practices, and participant development.  Club Sports are meant to enhance the individual learning experiences through involvement, commitment, and working in a team setting.

A competitive spirit of fair play and good sportsmanship is encouraged in order to provide all with a wholesome recreational experience. Participants and staff are asked to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with, and in support of, those values set forth by Utah Valley University.

Other Important Student Information

Student Right to Know

Utah Valley University hosts information regarding the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1991 on the HEA Student Consumer Information website. The Student Right-to-Know Act of 1991 requires all colleges and universities participating in Federal Student Aid Programs to disclose campus security policies, crime statistics, and information on students receiving athletically-related student aid, graduation rates, and other basic information about the University. To access a copy of the current Campus Security Report please visit

Alcohol, Tobacco & Drugs

Utah Valley University, historically and at present, seeks to encourage and sustain an academic environment that promotes the health, safety, and welfare of all members of its community. In keeping with these objectives, alcoholic beverages, unlawful drugs, or other illegal substances shall not be consumed, used, carried, sold, or unlawfully manufactured on any property or in any building owned, leased, or rented by UVU, or at any activity sponsored by the University. (UVU Policy 157)

Any individual known to be in violation will be subject to University disciplinary action and to substantial legal sanctions pursuant to Local, County, State and Federal laws.

Smoking is prohibited in all University buildings and concourses. (UVU Policy 158)

All students can access a copy of the University Drug Policy online each semester at It explains the policy and University sanctions that may follow as a result of inappropriate drug and or alcohol use and the known health risks associated with inappropriate use.

Confidentiality of Records Policy

Utah Valley University is concerned for the confidentiality of student academic records, and a reasonable balance between the obligation of the institution for the instruction and welfare of the student and its responsibility to society. The University will make every effort to maintain student academic records in confidence by keeping information from individuals who are not authorized to receive it or who might use it for illegitimate purposes. The policy also reflects the efforts of the University to comply with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

Upon presentation of appropriate identification and under circumstances which preclude alteration or mutilation of records, students will be able to inspect all records relating to themselves which are not considered by the University to be private records of University Personnel. A student is entitled to an explanation of any recorded data and may initiate action leading to a hearing, if necessary, to correct or expunge information he or she considers inaccurate or misleading.

Faculty and administrative officers who have a legitimate need to use student records will be allowed access to such records, as needed without prior permission from the student. A request from an educational institution to which the student has applied for admission, or from an institution or agency, from which the student is seeking financial assistance will be granted without written permission of the student. Similarly, data will be furnished to university accrediting bodies and governmental officials without written permission of the student.

No student information other than directory information will be given to any third party (except those mentioned above) without written consent of the student, and then only those records accessible to the student. The term party is construed to include parents, employers, government agencies, or any other people or organizations. Parents or guardians may have access to grade reports of a student’s activity if the parents establish to the satisfaction of the University that they are providing one-half or more of the student’s support. Court orders and subpoenas for records will be referred to and acted upon according to the directions of the Registrar. The University will make a reasonable effort to notify the student prior to release of information in response to subpoenas or court orders prior to actual submission of the material.

Directory information will be released to news media and to others upon request.

Directory information is defined as follows:

  • Name of student
  • Telephone number of student
  • Hometown city and state of student
  • Verification of current enrollment
  • Dates of enrollment
  • Degrees conferred, dates, major field of concentration and honors received

Students may request, at any time, through One Stop, the Admissions Office, and the Registrar’s   Office of the University, that Directory information be withheld by submitting a Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information form.

Civil Rights

Utah Valley University does not discriminate in recruitment or admission of students on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, or other legally impermissible factors.


Students who believe that they have been discriminated against or harassed should contact the Director of Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution, SL 201.

Note: Employees or students bringing a grievance against an employee who believe that they have been discriminated against or harassed should contact the Director of Human Resources Services or University Equity Officer.

Students should also consult the Student’s Rights and Responsibilities Code, which is printed in this catalog. See Student Rights and Responsibilities Section.


  • Purpose
    The primary purpose of this procedure is to provide a remedy through which to seek redress for alleged acts of discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, pregnancy-related condition, disability, or veteran status. This grievance procedure is not applicable for situations for which other appeal and adjudication procedures are provided in State law or in which the University is without authority to act.
  • Stages of Redress
    a. Students grieving against another student or an employee who is grieving against a student must present the grievance in written form to the SCCR within 14 days (two calendar weeks) of the violation.
    b. If not satisfied with the response the grievant may appeal within 14 days (two calendar weeks) of receipt of the response to the Dean of Students.
  • Hearing and Decisions
    At each of the levels noted above, the grievant shall be given the opportunity to be present and to be heard. Due process shall be accorded to all parties involved in the grievance, such as written notice of hearing dates and charge, right to counsel, right to present witnesses, and to present written statements. However, formal rules of evidence and trial procedure required in a court of law will not be applicable to such hearings. Decisions by the Campus Appeals Board shall be by a majority of the members present at the meeting. If an appeal is sent to the President, it must be accompanied by all documentation related to the prior hearings. The President’s decision is final.
    A grievance may be withdrawn by the grievant at any level without prejudice or record.
  • Reprisal
    No reprisal of any kind shall be taken by or against any party or legitimate participant in the grievance procedure by reason of such participation.
  • Confidentiality
    Appropriate confidentiality will be observed in all grievance procedures.
  • Informal Resolution of Grievance
    Nothing contained herein shall be construed so as to limit in any way the ability of the grievant and the University to resolve any grievance, mutually and informally.

Peaceful Assembly


Free expression and peaceful assembly are rights guaranteed by the Constitution, subject to time, place and manner regulations. The University acknowledges this right for its students to assemble and express their views peacefully. However, to protect the health and safety of both participants and bystanders, peaceful assembly procedures follow.

Preparation Strategies

  • Plan your peaceful assemblies through the Dean of Students Office
  • Reserve an appropriate location from the list below
  • Schedule appropriate amplification, if necessary
  • Contact University Police for traffic and crowd control, if necessary
  • Post fliers and/or cardboard signs according to the University Signage Policy
  • Pay rental charges, if required
  • Commit to obey local, state and federal laws and University policies
  • Agree not to disrupt the educational process of the University


  • Interference with the rights of others. Examples are harassment, intimidation and discrimination
  • Disruption of normal functions of the University
  • Damage to University property
  • Endangerment of the health or safety of self or others
  • Use of classrooms during academic hours
  • Refusal to vacate the premises upon official request by a University administrator or Law Enforcement personnel
  • Use of objects that might injure participants or bystanders; examples are wires, ropes, sticks and chains


Prohibited acts are grounds for suspension or dismissal. Utah law provides that a student may be barred from campus for up to 14 days following an incident where the student violates University policy or state law.
