HEA Assessment Process

What happens once I submit my application?

Your application will be reviewed by a group of peers at UVU who are already Fellows, Senior Fellows, and Principal Fellows of the Higher Education Academy. This group will meet once per semester (in Fall, Spring, and in Summer) to review and assess applications for Associate Fellow and Fellow. Deadlines for submitting your applications each semester will be communicated through the OTL Weekly Newsletter. Decisions will be communicated to applicants within approximately six weeks from the deadline for submission for each semester. For example, if the deadline for applications for the Fall Assessment Panel is November 1, then applicants should receive a response around mid-December.

What happens when I submit my application directly to the HEA?

If you apply for fellowship through the Direct Submission process, then you will need to create an account in MyAcademy, through the HEA website. You will upload your application and submit it online. Once you have submitted your application, the Office of Teaching and Learning will receive an invoice to pay your fee. If you decide to submit your application directly to the HEA, you are encourage to inform the Office of Teaching and Learning prior to doing so. This will allow you to make use of the peer support that is available through the growing pool of HEA fellows at UVU.
