Jumpstart Orientation

A comprehensive, partial-day event that will help you connect meaningfully to UVU's academic and social environment.

All first-time freshmen 20 years of age and younger who have completed online orientation must also attend Jumpstart Orientation.

Jumpstart Orientation will last approximately 5 hours.

(If you haven't already, follow these instructions to sign up for Jumpstart Orientation.)

Preparing for Jumpstart

Here are some plan-ahead tips to help you have an enjoyable and productive campus visit:

1. Be comfortable and presentable

Jumpstart includes a campus tour, so comfortable clothing and footwear is a must. Jumpstart also provides the opportunity for you to get your UVID photo while you're on campus. So, take whatever steps you need to have a good hair day! ( If preferred, UVID photos can also be submitted online, view instructions).

2. Know where you're headed and plan to be here on time

A few days before your assigned Jumpstart event you will receive a confirmation email with specific event location and parking instructions (sent to your myUVU email account). Check for that email! 


By Air

Students can fly directly into the Provo airport (Allegiant Air) or into the nearby international airport in Salt Lake City. Transport to UVU campus can be arranged via shuttle systems, UTA, Trax and Frontrunner.

UTA / Trax / Frontrunner

UVU is easily reached by way of public transportation. To plan your trip we suggest using UTA's Trip Planner. For the destination use Landmark Type: Colleges and Landmark: UVU Roundabout.


Depending on your home location, you may need to arrive the day before your scheduled orientation session. There are a variety of accommodations near UVU's campus
