A Bachelor of Science (B.S.) demonstrates proficiency in math while a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) demonstrates proficiency in a second language.
A B.S. degree requires two Quantitative Intensive (QI) courses, and a B.A. degree requires fourth semester proficiency in a second language. For UAC students who are not a native speaker in English, B.A. language requirements may be waived once they complete one semester at the U of U in Salt Lake Campus. If you have questions regarding B.A. language requirements, please email WLC Undergraduate Advising (email@example.com). Some majors allow you to choose to do either a B.A. or a B.S., while others do not offer you a choice.

Bring a course description and/or syllabus. We can evaluate the course based on the University's guidelines and determine if it fulfills the requirement.
UAC offers some courses that fulfill General Education requirements. It is highly recommended for students to take the courses sooner, as they will be able to focus on their major courses later on.
Students who complete their Writing (WR2) and Quantitative Reasoning (QA) requirements in their first 30 credits at the university tend to perform better in their subsequent courses and graduate sooner.
Your U of U cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or above for you to stay in good academic standing. You can view your GPA by logging on to CIS (and clicking 'Academic Summary').
The Academic Calendar provides important calendar dates for a specific semester. The Utah Asia Campus calendar can also be found at http://registrar.utah.edu/academic-calendars/index.php under Utah Asia Campus. The current year is listed at the top, and is followed by the next three academic years.
An academic year is divided into a Fall and Spring semester of approximately fifteen weeks each and a Summer term of approximately twelve weeks. It starts in the Fall and goes through the Summer term of the following year. A catalog year is the year a student declares his/her major. The year starts in fall (e.g. The 2018 catalog year is Fall 2018 and Spring 2019). Students are responsible for completing the degree requirements that are listed for their catalog year. When running a Degree Dashboard report for a major, the student should always use the appropriate catalog year. The catalog year is listed
next to the declared major on the student profile section of CIS.
The catalog year is associated with the academic year that a student declares their major/minor. However, students can use any of the five active catalog years: the current academic year and the four previous years. A new catalog year begins every Fall and expires every Summer. Because requirements change from year to year it is important that students and advisors ensure that the correct catalog year is listed in the student’s record, on their degree audit, and on their application for graduation.
- Non-U.S Citizen
- Graduated a high school in a non-English speaking country
- English is a second language
Students meeting the conditions above will be waived from the foreign language course requirement when they complete WRTG 2010 with a grade of C-/CR or better.
For questions, students should contact Department of World Language and culture
Students may repeat any course they have previously taken at the University as long as it is still offered. However, students may earn credit hours for a given course for graduation only once unless the course has been designated as repeatable for credit. The last grade received is used to compute the student's grade point average (and grades from previous instances of the same course are not considered in computing the GPA, but are shown on the record for the term the course was taken). The grades of I, NC, W, V, or T may neither be removed by repeating the course, nor may they be used to replace a grade in a previous course that has been repeated. All repeated courses are identified as such on the student's academic record. An exception allowing further retaking beyond the three-attempt limit may be granted only by the Academic Advisor.
An undergraduate student’s year level or class standing depends on the number of semester hours successfully completed, as follows:
0 to 29: First (Freshman)
30 to 59: Second (Sophomore)
60 to 89: Third (Junior)
90 - Graduation: Fourth (Senior)
12+ hours per term: Full Time
6-11 hours per term: Part Time
U Asia Campus Academic Policy
The maximum number of credits that students may complete at the UAC is 90. Once you complete 90 credits, a hold will be placed on your account and you will no longer be eligible to register for classes at the UAC until you have spent at least two semesters in Salt Lake City. All UAC students have to take at least 2 full semesters in SLC with a minimum of 24 credits.
The following students must submit the “Petition to Take Credits More than 90” form:
- Transfer students who will exceed 90 earned credits with their transfer credits
- Students returning from the SLC after taking a minimum of 24 credits in two semesters
- Students who want to take up to 94 credits before transitioning to SLC
Any undergraduate student who is permitted to register in university courses for credit is eligible to exercise a CR/NC grading option. A student may exercise the option of CR/NC grading for a maximum of 15 semester hours while an undergraduate at the University. A student may not exercise a CR/NC option in Writing 1010 or Writing 2010 or in courses which are required for the baccalaureate degree by the student's major department.
Students can take Gap Semesters up to 3 consecutive semesters (including Spring, Summer and Fall Semester) after the last registered semester in the UAC.
Official Leave of Absence
If students are planning to request an extension of their enrollment eligibility for a maximum period of 7 consecutive semesters (including Spring, Summer and Fall semesters), they would have to apply for official Leave of Absence. Requests are reviewed on a case by case basis by the Registrar's Office.

Some classes sometimes fill quickly, so students are encouraged to plan ahead and enroll on your assigned Registration Date to help ensure timely graduation.
If a class is full when a student registers, wait listing allows a student to add their name to an electronic wait list and potentially be added to the class if space opens up, and they meet all the requirements. Wait listing is not a guarantee to enrollment into a class.
Wait listing is only available to classes that the department sees as benefiting from a wait list.
Once a student wait lists into a class, it is up to them to monitor whether they are added to the class or not. If a student is added and decides they no longer want the class, they are responsible for dropping the class prior to the last day to drop deadline. It is recommended that the student drop themselves from any classes they are wait listed in once they have set their final schedule.
Adding, Dropping, and Withdrawing from Courses
Students may add or drop any course in a regular 15-week University semester without penalty for a period extending through the second Friday after the first day of the term . Beginning the following day and continuing through Friday of the first full week beyond the midpoint of the term, students may withdraw from a course or from the University without permission, but a "W" will be recorded on the academic record and applicable tuition and fees will be assessed for each course. The latter date is the final day on which a student may withdraw from a course or from the University.
Late Add Procedures for Registered Students
After the Add deadline has passed, students must meet with the Academic Advisor if they want to do a late add.
Withdrawal from Class(es)
Students may withdraw from workshops, short term courses, or non-credit courses following the drop deadline for such courses only up to Withdraw from Course(s) deadline. Any withdrawal after the initial drop period will cause a "W" to be recoded on the academic record and applicable tuition and fees will be assessed for the course. Students taking regular term courses may appeal the deadline for withdrawal in the case of compelling, non-academic emergencies. Students should meet with the Academic Advisor to discuss this option.
Campus Information Services limits registration to 19 credit hours during the appointment period. Once open enrollment begins, undergraduate students can register for up to 24 credit hours by logging into Campus Information Services. If you need to register for more than 24 credit hours, email the Registration & Records Division at firstname.lastname@example.org through UMail.

In most cases students seeking a Undergraduate degree become eligible to apply for graduation once 90 credit hours have been completed. There are some occasions when a student will not reach 90 credits but will be ready to graduate.
If a student wants to graduate and needs eligibility to apply online through CIS, the student needs to email email@example.com from the student’s UMAIL. The email needs to request eligibility to apply online and a brief explanation of the plan to complete requirements by the end of the semester he/she intends to graduate. The request to add eligibility needs to be received by the graduation division at least 24 hours prior to the application deadline for the intended graduation term.
For undergraduate students applying by the due date, three evaluations are done before a degree is awarded. All evaluations follow the Graduation Evaluation Process. The office will check and report any duplicate or repeated courses at this point. The first is an Initial Evaluation – students are sent a simple email referring them to check the Degree Audit report that we have generated for them. The second is the Provisional Evaluation and only students who have deficient requirements are sent an email listing those deficiencies and instructions for changing their graduation term. The last evaluation is done at the end of the semester – students will receive a UMail indicating their status has changed to “awarded” or “denied.” Denied students are given instructions on how to reapply. Awarded students are mailed their diploma. Although the final evaluation process takes approximately 4-6 weeks to complete, degrees are awarded daily and diplomas are mailed weekly during this time.
If you applied for graduation for the current commencement year, you can check your status by logging onto Campus Information Services and selecting "View Graduation Status" under the Graduation menu. Graduation Review Status will indicate one of the following:
- Application Received: Indicates that you have applied to graduate.
- Initial Evaluation in Progress: The Graduation Division is reviewing your academic record.
- Needs Additional Review Eval Pending: The Graduation Division has questions about your record and additional information is needed before the review can be completed.
- Initial Evaluation Complete: The Graduation Division completed an evaluation comparing your academic record with your Degree Audit (formerly known as My Degree Dashboard).

- Contact Advisor(s): Deficiencies have been noted in your expected graduation term. Contact your advisor to consider if you should delay graduation or if your requirements can still be completed this term.
- Review Complete On Track: The Graduation Division has noted that your Degree Audit (formerly known as My Degree Dashboard) shows all requirements are either completed or are in progress.
- Review Complete Ready to Award: The Graduation Division has noted that your Degree Audit (formerly Known as My Degree Dashboard) shows all requirements are completed.

No. A University minor can only be received at the same time the student graduates with a major. The minor is an attribute to a degree and not an entity by itself. Students should declare the minor with the appropriate department before applying for graduation. Additionally,
- Teaching minors must be completed in conjunction with a teaching major.
- Students can complete more than one minor at a time.
- If a minor is not complete upon graduation it can only be awarded if it is attached to another major completed at a later date.
- Both the major and minor must be complete during our final evaluation for a degree to be awarded. They will not be awarded separately.
- If a student decides not to complete the minor and would like their degree awarded with just their major they must formally request through UMail to firstname.lastname@example.org to drop their minor before the end of the term.
Graduation is the official awarding of degrees earned while commencement is the event which celebrates the completion of degree programs.
Yes, if you have applied for graduation and earned all graduation requirements, you will receive your diploma without attending the Commencement.
Students who are finishing their last semester at the Asia Campus during the Spring semester will have their degree conferred at the conclusion of the Summer semester.
Prior to awarding a degree, students must complete all coursework necessary for that degree. The Asia Campus Spring semester does not end until after the conferral date for the Spring semester for all campuses. Since there can only be one conferral date per semester, students completing their degree at the conclusion of the Asia Campus Spring semester are awarded degrees at the conclusion of the Summer semester.
Students in this situation can request a Statement of Degree Completion from the Graduation Division as soon as grades have posted from the Asia Campus Spring Semester.
