UVUCE Guidelines & Processes

UVU training

Contact your UVU department liason for curriculum specific training. This is required before you can begin teaching your course.

Training on:

  • Department Expectations
  • Instructional Philosophy
  • Assessment Methods
  • Procedures
  • Syllabus
  • Textbook

Additional Trainings

Throughout the year, there may be an additional need or opportunity to offer high school instructors training in their discipline. The CE office supports these efforts by providing:

  • Communication with high school instructors
  • Lunch/snacks
  • Stipends

Liaison visits

UVU's Concurrent Enrollment program is nationally accredited by NACEP. As such, we require annual site visits to high school CE instructor classrooms by our faculty liaisons.

Faculty liaisons are your best resource for the information and curriculum you need to effectively deliver the university experience in the high school classroom. These visits are essential to maintaining the campus-to-campus connection and helping you build a relationship with your faculty liaison.

Site visits can take many different forms. Your liaison may visit and review the syllabus with you, discuss any concerns you have with the curriculum, observe the entire class, etc.

It is especially important as a new instructor to visit with your liaison. After several consecutive years of CE instruction, instructors can be deemed "veteran" instructors. Once considered a veteran instructor, your faculty liaison may choose to only do a site visit every other year.

If concerns arise during site visits, or the CE instructor fails to communicate or facilitate site visits with their liaison, the liaison and concurrent enrollment director will work together to address those concerns and produce a plan of action.

The concurrent enrollment director and faculty liaison will work together to address any concerns that may arise during a site visit. Additionally, if the CE instructor fails to communicate with their liaison to arrange a site visit, the UVU department will contact your school's coordinator and/or administration.

It is imperative that you partner with your faculty liaison to schedule and follow through with your site visits.

FERPA Language & Terms

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of the student’s records. FERPA rules specify when and who gets to see a student’s records (which include not only files in offices or computerized information, but also student exam scores, student essays, or other student work). Though the majority of CE students are still minors, FERPA protects all student information from everyone, including the student’s parent or legal guardian. Parents/guardians may only access student information after the student has submitted the official FERPA release form. Instructors are allowed to discuss a student’s high school course with parents/ guardians, but should refrain from sharing any college-related information. FERPA takes effect on the first day of a student’s first class.
