Providing a Place and a Path for Every Student:

Expanding efforts to more fully ensure the success of every student on campus.

The collection of degrees and programs, student support services, and academic departments organized under the umbrella of UVU's University College (UC) is based upon a student-centered, best practice, national model. University College fulfills an important community college function and makes open enrollment possible at the University by being a student's connection to success, providing an entry point for individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and supporting them throughout their academic experience to completion of their educational goals. It is our primary focus to be inclusive and to help each student feel welcomed and valued. We are here to ensure there is a way to engage all students as they successfully complete their course work and obtain their desired degree. Put simply, we provide a place and a path for every student.


“The University College is a student’s connection to success, providing an entry point for individuals with varying levels of academic preparation while inspiring and empowering them throughout their academic experience to completion of their educational goals.”




“Foster learning opportunities and collaborations.”
