University College

University College is an early educational home for students exploring options for their academic pursuits, providing connections to success for all students. Through collaboration with other academic schools and student services, UC facilitates interdisciplinary study and helps students become better prepared for the rigors of university-level coursework.

Writing Center

The UVU Writing Center provides a space where students of all disciplines may further their understanding of writing principles and enhance their writing skills. This is primarily achieved through one-on-one tutorials focused on specific writing assignments and tailored to the individual student's needs.

First Year Experience

The First Year Experience (FYE) at Utah Valley University is here to help new students make a smooth and successful transition to college life. Participating in all the FYE programs helps students build a foundation of success that will support them during their first year at UVU, and all the way to graduation!

Student Preparation, Success, and Retention Programs

University College seeks funding to sustain existing components of and further develop the student support infrastructure. Student success and retention programs focus on preparing students for their college experience and are committed to leveraging students for success and persistence in achieving their academic goals.


Scholarships are awarded to students demonstrating academic excellence and financial need. Scholarships provide assistance to those who otherwise may not be able to receive or complete an education.
