GREAT NEWS FROM THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE: "In the 2013 Utah State Legislative session, a bill was passed regarding military credit; subsequently, the Utah State Board of Regents also approved that credit may be awarded for certain military service training and experience as recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE). It is advised that students with military credit meet with an academic advisor to determine how this credit will apply towards a degree, as the military credit will increase the number of semester hours and could impact the tuition costs calculated at the Upper Division Rate Schedule as well as financial aid. In order to receive this general elective credit, a Joint Services Transcript (or other appropriate credential) must be forwarded to the Office of Admissions. General elective credit will be awarded as recommended by ACE and only if the coursework is offered at the U. However, it is up to each academic department to decide if the credit is applicable to a specific major or program." In other words you can get credit for military schooling where it applies. You won't get credit if there isn't a similar class offered at the U and, in the case of major credit, if the department feels the course isn't applicable or up to the standards of that department. If you run into issues with this (which I doubt) stop in and speak with the Center. Thanks to the Utah Legislature and the Admissions Office for getting this done!
For Current Students! Some of you are receiving Yellow Ribbon payments to off set the cost of out-of-state tuition. And that's a good thing! But! When you are eligible to change from out-of-state to in-state tuition (a year in Utah and establish residency), make sure you do so! Why? Because Yellow Ribbon funds are limited. If you are using that money and don't need to then change over to in-state tuition and free those dollars up for other Vets to use who may not have an option for in-state. It's a better use of the funds and it respects your fellow Vets by making sure they have every chance to attend the University of Utah. If you have any questions you may call the Center at (801) 587-7722 and we'd be glad to provide answers. Thanks!
For New Students! Check out the link on Residency for how to get in-state tuition when you apply, if you meet the requirements. It's not hard to do!
