About Us

The Academic Standards office promotes students’ academic success, assists those experiencing academic difficulty, and guides them in discovering and accessing resources that will allow them to reach their full potential.

Our department oversees UVU Policy 521: Undergraduate Academic Standards, which includes the requirement to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher to remain in Good Standing.

When students fall below the cumulative GPA of 2.0 for the second consecutive semester, our programs and services aim to bring them back on course toward academic success and graduation. Therefore, we primarily work with students on Continued Probation and varying levels of Suspension or Dismissal. Our goal is to understand your challenges so we can help you succeed.

Though Financial Aid is also affected by Academic Standing, our office does not handle those issues. You can learn more about Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) here.
