UVU Distance Education
High School Students can take actual UVU courses through Live Interactive Education!
Live Interactive Education (or Distance Education) is another great Concurrent Enrollment opportunity for Timpview students to earn college credit while in high school. Utah Valley Professors are on the UVU campus teaching in a special classroom designed to transmit the class throughout the state. The high-tech equipment enables students to communicate with the professor on campus in real-class time while attending their high school class at Timpview High School in the Media Center.
Distance Education courses give dual college and high school credit. For each 3-credit hour college class taken, students receive 1.0 high school credit. Distance Education course offerings differ from year to year however, Timpview High School tries to maintain General Education (GE) courses consistent for high school and college graduation.
Participation in this program requires Junior and Senior students to have and maintain a 3.0 GPA, and Sophomore students a 3.5 GPA +H English. In this program students block out the odd/even high school class time to follow the UVU schedule and calendar. UVU courses in the Fall semester may begin before high school classes start in August. UVU courses in Spring semester may begin before the end of first semester high school classes in January. Students in this program purchase their own textbooks and other materials that may be required by the instructor.
Class size each semester is limited State wide. Register for courses early to secure your seat.
For scheduling and registration in this program meet with the high school Concurrent Enrollment coordinator, Lisa Pulver (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Media Center.
UVU Fall registration opens in May, classes beginning in August.
UVU Spring registration opens in November, classes beginning in January.
Registration Tip For High School Seniors: If you are planning to take your first concurrent enrollment course in spring semester of your senior year and you have already completed the UVU undergraduate admission application, you will still be required to complete a High School Concurrent Enrollment admission application by the posted spring semester deadlines.
NOTE: Distance Education admission and registration deadlines are different from the Concurrent Enrollment admission and registration deadlines.
