About Us

The First-Year Advising Center has moved! You can find us in WB 257

We are committed to assisting students in building a foundation for success at Utah Valley University through engaged, inclusive, and holistic academic counseling.

What is the FAC?

The First-Year Advising Center was created in 2019 in an effort to improve persistence and retention of first-year students. Our team of over 20 advising professionals works with students to provide a proactive, holistic, and data-informed academic advising experience. We welcome you to review key metrics about our mission, purpose, and services on our overview document

What can you expect from us?

We strive to provide a personalized plan and exceptional care to all of our advisees. Therefore, we established an advising curriculum and service standards, so you know what to expect from us. If you would like more information about our priorities and objectives, you are welcome to ask about our strategic plan, or connect with a member of ouradvisory board. We look forward to guiding you during your first year at UVU!
