Covid-19 Modified Operations Latest Updates

Utah Valley University is moving all credit-bearing summer semester courses to a remote delivery model. This decision was made out of respect for students and faculty who need time to prepare and plan in an ever-changing environment. Limited face-to-face offerings of specialized courses and condensed delivery may occur in the second block of summer 2020. A decision on those courses will be made after May 1. Please see the FAQ tab for more information.

 

A letter to our summer students

Dear Student,

Congratulations! You made a great choice in registering for summer semester 2020, and you are in good company. To date, almost 8,500 UVU students have chosen to enroll along with you.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, President Astrid S. Tuminez announced that this year’s summer semester classes will be delivered remotely via Canvas, Microsoft Teams, and/or Kaltura Live Room, and — virus permitting — faculty may be able to offer face-to-face labs and condensed courses during the second summer block. 
Remote delivery and online instruction are not new at UVU. In fact, 54% of our classes were already online when the pandemic hit, and our dedicated faculty has worked tirelessly to make sure the rest of the courses are available to you. All instruction will be the same during summer semester, except for the new delivery method. Grading will be based on the traditional GPA scale. All areas of support will be available, including the Writing Center and Math Lab.
Your academic advisors are prepared to answer your questions and help you navigate our modified teaching system. Here is how to find your advisor with contact information: 
  1. Log in to my.uvu.edu. At this point, you will also need to log in through Duo authentication.
  2. Select the “Students” tab on the left.
  3. Select “My Academics” in the drop-down menu on the left.
  4. There will be a block with “My Advisor Information” on the right side of the dashboard. In this block you will see your advisor’s name, photo, and contact information.
We will also be providing updates on the UVU Summer Semester Website as they become available.
Most importantly, we encourage you to continue your education plan. “As you consider these changes, please continue to make your education a priority — it is the one thing I hope you don’t distance yourself from,” President Tuminez said.
We understand the transition to remote learning may present challenges for some, but please stay the course. You can be very successful in this system. Stick with it. UVU is here to help you — let us support and help you succeed.
 
Sincerely,
Tiffany M. Evans
Director, Program Completion

Tuition of summer semester

Summer tuition rates change for everyone — no matter where you’re from — to in-state tuition rates. Yes, that’s right, everyone will pay the same. Make your dollars stretch this summer!

Parking during summer semester

Parking on campus can be a headache sometimes, but not at all during the summer. You’ll still need to register your car, but you won’t have to pay for a parking permit, and you won’t have to endlessly circle the parking lots looking for a spot.
