School Details

Utah Valley University, located on a suburban campus in Orem, Utah, is a publicly funded university in the state of Utah. UVU was founded in 1941 and was originally known as the Central Utah Vocational School. It was established as the result of the Utah State Vocational Office consolidating federal work program classes into one campus. The school became Utah Technical College at Provo in 1967, and began issuing associate degrees for the first time, and in 1977, it moved to its present location. The school became Utah Valley State College in 1993, and began awarding four-year degrees, and obtained university status in 2007, and began offering masters degrees.

UVU has a distance education program that is a flexible alternative for students that are unable to take classes in the traditional classroom environment. Distance learning allows students to balance receiving an education with their busy lifestyles. The distance education program consists of live interactive, online and broadcast courses. Distance education course credits can be applied to any of UVU’s degrees, and several degrees can be earned entirely through distance education.
