Spring registration began Monday, Oct. 25. While many students choose to wait until the beginning of the semester to register, with constantly growing numbers, many academic advisors are encouraging students to register early in order to get into the classes they need and want.
For those looking for an elective or even just an interesting class, the UVU Review staff has put together a list of classes that have caught our interest, and perhaps they will just thing to slip into upcoming spring schedules.
To find more exciting classes to enroll in, check out the course catalog at http://www.UVU.edu/catalog/
To register, students can sign into their UVLink account, click on “Registration Menu,” then “Add/Drop Classes.” From there, students can enter the course numbers for their desired and required courses and before they know it, spring will be here and classes will begin.
Here are some exciting courses and there are many, many more. These descriptions and more can be found in the course catalog
