Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I get declared as an Earth Science Major?

Once you have decided on Earth Science as a major, talk to Tom Liljegren, the Earth Science Department Advisor, to get declared as a major.

  • How can I tell how close am I to graduating?

At any time you can pull up your Wolverine Track degree audit report, which you can access via myUVU (on the “student” tab under “planning your education”). This report will show exactly what requirements you have completed and what you have remaining. You can also make semester scheduling plans and apply for graduation on Wolverine Track.

  • How do I register for classes?

Once you have been admitted to UVU and have any registration holds removed, you may register for classes using myUVU. You can find information on how to register online.

  • What can I do if the class I need is full?

If a course you are registering for is full, you may register for the wait-list. This will place you on a list of students seeking to register in the course. Each time a student drops from the course, the person at the top of the wait list will have a chance to enroll in the course. Go to your detail schedule on myUVU to view what position you are on the wait list. An email is sent to your UVU email if you are at the top of the waitlist and able to register for the course in the next 24-hours. Make sure to check your University email daily to ensure you don’t miss your registration window.

  • Do I have to use my UVU Email?

Your University email will contain important University announcements and may also be used by professors, instructors, and advisors to contact you. If you don’t plan on checking this e-mail regularly, you can have it forwarded to any other email through the “Options” menu.
