Utah Valley University offers help to students following closure of Argosy University


Utah Valley University, the state’s largest open-access institution, announced Monday it will work with students impacted by the closure of Argosy University. Argosy announced the immediate closure of all locations in March.

“UVU is interested in supporting all students in our region attain their educational goals,” said Jessica Gilmore, associate vice president of outreach and economic and community development. “Students who have previously attended Argosy have received credit, and they deserve to be able to complete their degrees despite the Argosy closure. UVU is happy to help students evaluate options within UVU pathways.”

Utah Valley University offers many of the same academic programs previously offered by Argosy and can provide transcript evaluation and advising to support Argosy students. UVU has designated an admissions counselor who can help guide Argosy students through the process of admission. All admission fees will be waived.

As an accredited university, transfer students will be eligible for direct equivalents that could apply to their UVU course of study.

“Argosy students’ transcripts will be sent to individual departments for evaluation. This evaluation is an important step so Argosy transfer students and their advisor can make informed decisions on which pathways to pursue at UVU,” said Chris Alldredge, associate registrar at UVU.

Gilmore said she wants Argosy students to understand they are welcome at UVU, and they can explore their options without paying fees. Credits will also be transferred at no cost. “You can complete academic programs face to face or online, depending on the degree,” she said.

For the greatest choice of courses and times, students should get started as close to priority registration as possible. For the quickest evaluation, students should act promptly. The university deadline for fall admission is August 1.
