COVID-19 Update: Grading and Facilities



Grading Options 

COVID-19 has unexpectedly changed the 2019-20 school year in profound ways. The shift to remote/online courses has created circumstances that may require flexibility in grading options. Academic and administrative leadership is currently exploring various grading options for spring semester. Careful consideration is being given to all aspects of this decision to ensure there are no adverse effects on financial aid or a student’s long-term success. An announcement on the grading policy will be released shortly. We appreciate your patience as we support the academic persistence of UVU students and protect their future educational opportunities.

Recognizing the need to give students flexibility, we have changed the deadline to withdraw from classes from April 3 to April 24.
