3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far its been decent having an actual class has been great the online courses are subpar. parking is the absolute worst.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am not close enough to graduating to know enough about this topic but a lot of people view it positively.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: My experience thus far has not been that great.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have only been here for a semester so I am still getting used to it but it seems great

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: There aren't quite enough degree options. There range is limited.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a music major, but I am probably changing it. It's a four year program starting now, and I've been in school for three years.

4 College Junior

Career Services: I am going to be an elementary teacher and I think that that field is a hassle to get into. But having a degree from UVU should help me get one faster. I think that being a teacher will be so important and I can't wait to do so.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I really, honestly hate having to pay for school. I think it is absolutely ridiculous how much I have to pay to attend. I was in Germany for a year being an au pair and I almost stayed there to go to school because they only have to pay around 200Euros a year for school. That's about $300. I just think it is crazy the difference to go to school in America and other countries. We are all getting the same level of education so I don't understand why we, in America, have to pay more than those outside. Although in England they have to pay way more than we do.

But as a school, UVU is pretty average for how much you have to pay. Getting financial aid was pretty easy. I would definitely recommend everyone applying for FAFSA. I wouldn't be able to attend school without it. I was selected for verification one year and that was about a joke. It didn't go through and so I wasn't able to attend school for a year and a half because I didn't have a way to pay for it. But if your financial aid does go through then it is wonderful. Loans are great until you have to pay them off. But I have just accepted that that is how it will be.

Student Body: I feel so included in the student body. I feel that we are all one, not separate. It is nice how friendly everyone is and how willing they are to include me in everything. I have made so many friends and I love it. I love the diversity. It is fun meeting people from different places in the world, and to hear their stories of how they came to UVU and why they are here.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I love the library and the student center. I can get as much help as I need. And the campus activities are always a lot of fun, when I have time to go to them. Free food is always excellent so I attend as many activities as I can. I love how big and pretty UVU campus is. It is nice to go sit outside to study.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The academics are wonderful. I feel very involved in many activities. Which is nice. The professors, as I have said before, are all great. They really make sure you get the help you need. Registration was super easy. The workload is as much as I was expecting. It is hard to have to go to school and work at the same time, but it isn't too much homework and what not to have to do when all is done.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am going to be an elementary teacher and anything to do with my major I love. UVU works with a lot of elementary schools and so when I get to the internship/job in a few years, I have no doubt I will be able to get a job quickly. My program is amazing. The staff that I work with are great and I really feel included in things. I feel that I am getting a quality education and that I will eventually be able to give a quality education.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have not been attending UVU for very long and honestly before I started attending it was the most frustrating process I have ever had to deal with. I transferred from SUU and my transfer credits went through just fine. But getting my financial aid to go through was a pain. I was selected for verification. It would have been fine but UVU didn't inform me of this until 3 weeks before all the paperwork was due. I think that they should have been better at letting me know that I was selected way before it was due. And because they didn't let me know until later, I was not able to attend school for a year and a half. And that was super frustrating. So that wasn't the best thing.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are great sized. They work out really well and the teachers are amazing. They really make sure that you are getting all the help they need. I love the atmosphere.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think that the value of the degree at UVU is just the same as any other school. I will get a degree in Elementary Education and it will be the same degree as if I were to get one from BYU or USU. Same value and same way to get into jobs. I don't have my degree yet but when I get there I am sure that I will thank the professors and the way they helped me out with getting to where I needed to be. :)

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I have a hard time with online courses mainly because I do better in an actual class environment. But the online courses I have taken I had a great experience with. The teachers were great and made sure that I had all the help I needed. :)

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Some majors have great help finding careers after graduation. Others do not have as much help. It really all depends on your major.

5 College Junior

Facilities: It's open to anyone and everything. They give you lots of opportunities to do whatever you want.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I actually haven't really looked into it all that much so I'm not really sure.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I love the great variety there is in all the programs and different ways to attend class. As well as how simple it is to register.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I love how hard they push you to be the best student you possibly can, so that when you go into your field you WILL be the best possible.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I never really prefer to do online classes I've only had one and it worked pretty well.

5 College Junior

Student Body: They are all very friendly and try to get people involved which is really nice.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Obviously I would love not to have to pay so much, but I feel I am getting a great education. I really like that they continually notify when deadlines for payments are and you always know how much you owe or are going to need to pay.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I like how easy it is to talk to staff and get problems through to them.
