This policy applies to Early Registration, Open Registration, and Late Registration.

Early and Open Registrations not paid for or covered by Financial Aid by the published payment deadline date will be dropped. (See Payment Deadlines for all dates and deadlines) 

Students who default on all or any portion of their tuition and fees will be suspended from further registration and records activity at the University until their account is paid in full.

The registration and records activity suspension will be carried forward to perpetuity until all past due tuition and fees are paid in full.

Past due tuition accounts may be reported to the Credit Bureau and/or turned over to an outside collection agency for collection.

Tuition Disclosure

Full-time 2023-24 undergraduate resident students at Utah Valley University paying a semester tuition and fee amount of $3,135 (before any financial aid, scholarship or waiver) contribute an estimated 42 percent to the full cost of instruction per full-time student of $7,473.00. The remaining support for the full cost of instruction is provided by $4,338 of state tax funds.

Tuition Surcharge Policy

A student who takes course work in excess of 125% of the credits required for graduation may be charged for those excessive credit hours at twice the resident rate, as per Utah State Board of Regents Policy R510.


The tuition refund policy is established by the Board of Regents and amended by each college/university to fit their programs. Utah Valley University refunds for students who withdraw from school or drop classes are calculated as follows:


  • Through first week of instruction - 100%
  • Through second week of instruction - 100%
  • After second week of instruction - 0%

Thereafter, the refund periods for instructional cycles other than the semester are extrapolated from the above schedule.

A Petition to the Refund Policy Form is available on the Web or can be obtained from the office of the Registrar.

Check Cashing Procedures

The College will not accept two-party checks. Checks written to UVU should have the writer's social security number, local address, and phone number on the face of the check. Two forms of identification are required at all campus check-cashing locations.

Checks written that later have a stop payment placed upon them will be considered as dishonored checks.

Checks written up to $5 over the amount of the purchase may be cashed at the Bookstore. All other campus locations accept checks for amount of purchase (or payment) only.

A service charge will be assessed on each dishonored check unless the student can document that it was a bank error.

Students who have current dishonored checks will not be allowed to receive grades and/or transcripts, make changes in registration, register for future semesters, graduate, nor pick up checks that are disbursed by UVU, which may include but are not limited to financial aid, guaranteed student loans, tuition refunds, and payroll checks.
