Governor Herbert on Pathways

“In aligning the knowledge and skills our students are learning in school with the needs of employers in our state, there is a vital need for a post-secondary technical education, although not necessarily a two or four-year degree. Our state motto for post-secondary education is: 'One, two, four or more.' To put our students on the right path toward college and career readiness, we are promoting more and better counseling. Education is a top priority in Utah and the key to our economic development efforts.”


Jump-Start Your Future while you are still in high school.

As a high school student, earn college credit (through concurrent enrollment) and receive technical training by participating in one of UVU's many hands-on learning programs.

The CTE programs at UVU will:

  • Start the high-school student on a pathway that will lead to an industry recognized certificate
  • Guide the high-school student on a pathway to earn an associate's degree in their chosen field
  • Point the high-school student on a pathway to a bachelor's degree and a successful career

Students who focus on a Pathway acquire the skills necessary for entry into well-paid careers with high potential for rapid financial growth, increased levels of responsibility, and a high degree of personal satisfaction.

Note: CTE Pathways is a national and statewide recognized program. For more information from the state pathways.

UVU wants to make your path to success as efficient and rewarding as possible. Through a University Pathway only take the courses you need without guessing and registering for classes that prolong graduation. UVU also makes it easier to increase earning potential through Pathways that can evolve from one, to two and four year degrees. A one year degree counts as credit earned to a two year degree. A two year degree counts as credit to a four year degree. At each step you not only make it easier to achieve that next degree but position yourself for career advancement and reward.

Credentials & Degrees that can be earned include:

  • Technical certificates (one year)
  • Associates degrees - AAS and AS (two year)
  • Bachelor degrees - BS, BA, and BS degrees (four year)

You may be eligible for scholarships and traditional financial aid to help make your Pathways education - not only achievable - but affordable.
