Audit Courses

Changes for auditing a class are the same rate as regular credit classes and such hours will be counted as part of the student's total credit-hour load for tuition purposes.  Students may only request an audit through the last day to add.

Registration Late fee- $100

Regardless of circumstances, students who did not register and pay tuition according to the registration schedule, will be classified as late registrants and assessed the late fee.

Reinstatement Fee

A fee of $50 will be charged for reinstatement of classes for a student terminated earlier during the same academic semester.

Credit by Examination fee (Challenge Credit)

A nonrefundable fee of $15 is charged to take a challenge examination.  Tuition is charged at a rate of $5 per credit.

Student Financial Responsibility

Failure to meet financial commitments and/or obligations to the College will result in a "hold" being placed on the student's record. Registration for future terms and transcripts will not be available until the obligation is cleared.

Other Fees

  • Admission Fee- $35.00 (resident students)
  • Foreign Student Admission Fee - $100
  • Challenge Credit Fee - $5.00 per credit
  • Challenge Credit Form - $15.00

While the ELL Program tuition is lower than regular UVU tuition for non-resident and international students, the quality remains the same. Here are some of the advantages of the ELL Program at UVU:

  • Students accepted into the ELL Program are matriculated into UVU. That means once you complete the ELL program, you continue your studies at UVU without reapplying- no TOEFL test needed!
  • Level IV classes may count towards earning your degree. See your major advisor for more information.
  • Twenty credit of Level IV classes fulfills the foreign language requirement for a A.A. or BA degree. Please see your major advisor for specific information.
