Intramural and Club Sports

The Intramural Sports Program is one of the largest co-curricular activity programs that complement the formal academic curriculum. It offers extensive opportunities to currently enrolled Utah Valley University students, faculty, staff and their spouses/partners in a number of competitive and structured activities each year. 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.

National Student Exchange

National Student Exchange (NSE) is a domestic “study away” experience that fits into university initiatives for globalization and diversity. NSE embodies the overall mission of Utah Valley University by providing high impact meaningful Engagement Opportunities for its students. The National Student Exchange, which is a service within the Career Development Center, provides opportunities for undergraduates, to study for up to one calendar year at another NSE member university and pay UVU tuition rates or the in-state tuition rate of the host school.

With more than 200 colleges and universities from which to choose, students can find a campus that is “custom” to individual degree plans, with just the right combination of courses, facilities, and environment to meet unique personal and academic needs and interests. Spending time at another campus will allow students to grow academically and personally. Students will develop a greater appreciation for the different regions, cultures, and people. NSE extends beyond the borders of the United States to include U.S. territories as well as Canadian provinces. Students participate in order to:

  • Broaden personal and educational perspectives
  • Explore and appreciate new cultures
  • Widen university boundaries
  • Take courses not offered at the home campus
  • Learn from different professors
  • Access courses with different perspectives
  • Explore new areas of study
  • Experience personal growth
  • Live in a different geographic area
  • Acquire life skills
  • Investigate graduate or professional schools
  • Look for future employment opportunities
  • Become more mature, independent and resourceful

NSE participants have found their exchanges culturally enriching, academically rewarding, and one of the most significant experiences of their undergraduate education. Since its founding in 1968, more than 100,000 students have had the opportunity to break out of their comfort zone, and experience life from a different point of view.

Students will need a 2.5 cumulative GPA and one-year of university work to join these students who have been placed in life-changing exchange situations which challenged their thinking, expanded their educational and personal experiences, and encouraged them to take healthy risks.

After graduation, when you look back at your college days, NSE can be one of those memorable highlights! Don’t let this rare opportunity pass you by!

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)

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.

The University shall take steps to prevent retaliation and shall take strong, responsive action to threats or acts of retaliation. Individuals who, in bad faith, deliberately make false or malicious accusations of violation of this policy shall be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment and/or expulsion from the University. A finding of no violation by the investigator(s) does not in itself constitute proof of a false or malicious accusation. The University may discipline any person who is found to have violated this policy.
