Student Success Specialists

Reaching Out to Students with Personalized Support

Student Success Specialists provide personalized support by reaching out to students through phone calls, emails, and one-on-one visits guiding them to identify resources and develop strategies that will help them succeed from their first-year to graduation. Support includes:

  • Contacting each new freshmen and new transfer student their first semester at UVU.
  • Contacting students that are referred by peers, staff, faculty, community, etc. through the Refer-a-Student Form (located near the end of the page).
  • Reaching out to students who have received an Early Alert in a course to answer questions, offer support strategies, and connect to resources that can help student get back on course.
  • Supporting our Returning Wolverines, students that have left UVU for a year or more looking for information and resources to complete their degrees.
